Survey shows how much time, money, is lost to disorganization

At one point or another, the Greater Toronto area’s best and brightest have no doubt wondered how much time they spend looking for something that’s been misplaced. A survey from Brother International may just answer that question.

According to the survey, Brother International says approximately 76 working hours are lost for each person due to disorganization annually. In the U.S., that winds up costing employers more than $177 billion in work productivity.

“As we have seen now more than ever, companies are trying to find unique ways of saving money and becoming more efficient,” said Bill Henderson, vice president of marketing with Brother International.

Though the organization didn’t mention it, this may help explain why a growing number of businesses are deciding to rent out storage units, which have traditionally been rented by individuals who used them to house their residential belongings. Today, a significant percentage of storage units are rented out by businesses.

And with 87 percent of office workers saying they’re less productive when they’re disorganized, according to the survey, it’s a sound investment for many companies.
