  The Wasted Workday - Work Smarter (Credits: 1.0 TB)

There's no argument that technology makes life easier. Internet shopping has redefined convenience. Smart phones and wearable tech have made constant connection the new baseline. Digital natives are entering the workforce. Push notifications are the new status symbol. We are available 24/7. But, just because we CAN be connected and available 24/7, SHOULD we be? Research suggests that in an eight-hour day, the average worker is only productive for around three hours. How can we make the time we spend working more effective so we can get more task accomplished, achieve our goals and get more of what we DO want - time away from work! Join us for this lively discussion and learn how to work smarter!
