Pest Control Marketing – A Statistic That Will Floor You! -How much time do YOU waste?

Here’s a something that will shock you…or it might make you want to throw up!

Assume that you or one of your employees wastes an average of one hour per day.  That doesn’t seem like a big deal, right?  I mean, a couple of smoke breaks, a few minutes surfing the internet, throw in a personal phone call or two  and…well…an hour is gone before you know it.

So what’s the problem?

Keep reading.

Let’s assume that the average worker gets two weeks off for vacations each year.  That means he/she works 50 weeks. That comes out to an average of 250 workdays per year.  If they waste one hour per day, that comes out to 250 hours wasted per year.  Based on a 40 hour work week, that comes out to 6 ½ WEEKS WASTED!!!

Read that last paragraph again so it will be sure to sink in.

FACT:  If you waste one hour per day,  that means you waste 6 ¼ weeks in a year.

It gets even more sobering!

If you have 8 employees who earn an average of $18.00 per hour each (based on an average 40 hour  work week) that comes out to $36,000.00 per year for each employee.  If they each waste and average of one hour a day (combined total of 2000 hours in a year @ $18.00/hr.) that comes out to $36,000.00 wasted per year.

That means you are paying $36K a year for an employee who doesn’t exist!

Now do you see why time management is so important?

I sure hope so.  (BTW…reading my articles each week is NOT considered a waste of time.)

Now…go get busy doing something before someone catches you reading this!
