Distractions cost businesses $300bn a year

Employees are more distracted than ever due to social media updates and email alerts. The average worker is distracted by an IM, tweet or Facebook message every 10.5 minutes, taking an extra 23 minutes to return to the task at hand.

All in all, these distractions are costing American businesses up to $300billion every year.
