Story to tell in the infographic
Thanks to a proprietary study done in partnership with Harvard Business Review, we have gathered a huge, unique data set for how people’s minds work (and where their minds go) while in the office and/or working. We gathered 250,000 responses across 4 countries, 15 industries and 30 variables. We are using these data to analyze employee well-being at work and to provide actionable insights to organizations on how to improve their employee’s mindsets at work. We will be producing and publishing a large report at the end of 2021, entitled The Mind at Work. Between now and the end of the year, we want to publish bi-monthly mini-reports, which are infographic-focused, each of which will highlight a different insight that has emerged from the research. The first mini-report is focused on Mind-Wandering while at work. We would like to include 4 visuals within the infographic which help tell the story that the mind at work is most productive and balanced when it is calm, clear and focused. When the mind is agitated and distracted, the experience is unproductive and stressful.
Data to include in the infographic
Here are the infographics we would like for the report, and the data/some explanatory text: 1. How distracted are people on the job and what is the cost? Overall, people report mind-wandering 37% of the time while at work. On average, over a third of our entire day is spent distracted and off-task. Unfocused employees, unproductive teams and absent-minded leaders cost the U.S. economy $300 billion annually. 2. Does the day of the week matter when it comes to distractions at work? On average, people report mind-wandering 37% of the time while at work. Here’s how that wandering looks like throughout the week: Mondays (morning = 44%; midday = 38%; afternoon = 41%); daily avg = 41% Tuesdays (morning = 41%; midday = 33%; afternoon = 35%); daily avg = 36% Wednesdays (morning = 33%; midday = 31%; afternoon = 28%); daily avg = 30% Thursdays (morning = 37%; midday = 38%; afternoon = 39%); daily avg = 38% Fridays (morning = 30%; midday = 37%; afternoon = 45%); daily avg = 37% 3. Stress makes it all even worse. A stressed, agitated mind will wander 2-3x more than a mind that is calm and balanced. People who are stressed progressively get worse throughout the week, hitting a weekly low on Friday, compared to their calmer counterparts who hit peak focus by the end of the week. For people dealing with stress/feeling mentally agitated, the week looks like this: Mondays (morning = 57%; midday = 49%; afternoon = 47%); daily avg = 51% Tuesdays (morning = 51%; midday = 49%; afternoon = 47%); daily avg = 49% Wednesdays (morning = 50%; midday = 52%; afternoon = 40%); daily avg = 47% Thursdays (morning= 48%; midday = 58%; afternoon = 59%); daily avg = 55% Fridays (morning = 46%; midday = 66%; afternoon = 65%); daily avg = 59% For people not dealing with stress/feeling mentally calm, the week looks like this: Mondays (morning= 38%; midday = 32%; afternoon = 37%); daily avg = 35% Tuesdays (morning = 35%; midday = 25%; afternoon = 29%); daily avg = 29% Wednesdays (morning = 27%; midday = 38%; afternoon = 23%); daily avg = 29% Thursdays (morning = 32%; midday = 27%; afternoon = 31%); daily avg = 30% Fridays (morning = 23%; midday = 22%; afternoon = 31%); daily avg = 25% 4. What helps a mind to stay focused and not wander? Sleep: Poor (less than 6 hours) sleep reported on the night before is associated with more mind-wandering (41%) the next day, compared to good sleep, 7 hours or more (35%). A daily mind-training practice: People who report having some type of mindfulness practice are half as likely to mind-wander (28%) compared to their less mindful counterparts (52%). Social: Being more social and outgoing makes people mind-wander nearly half as much (30%) as when they present as more shy or introverted (48%).
