  1. This subject is a slippery slope. Numerous studies have shown that a little distraction during the workday actually allows workers to be more productive when they are on task. Asking someone to be completely and only focused on just their work for an entire day isn’t reasonable IMO.

    Why do you think all of the big dotcoms, that rely on talent, productivity and creativity from its employees, have ping pong tables and nap rooms and massage breaks etc.

    I find that if you treat people like adults and don’t insist on being a taskmaster that you will often find that they are even more productive in the long run.
