Whenever there’s a holiday, no matter where it falls during the year and the work week, you know one thing’s for sure: Productivity is going to drop. But what if it didn’t have to? The struggle is real. During December alone, studies show that more than two-thirds of workers report being less productive compared to other months.
Employee absenteeism and distraction pose significant costs to the overall economy and your bottom line in particular. Even non-holiday events can have a high cost: The 2017 solar eclipse cost the U.S. an estimated $700 million in lost productivity. For every 14 minutes employees spend shopping online at work during Cyber Monday, employers can lose $450 million in productivity/wages.
