Satisfied with your job? Eh.

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2009 at 11:17 AM

In the era of the Great Recession, when walking into your office might mean facing rows of empty cubicles and desks weighted with work meant for three employees, it's no surprise folks aren't happy on the job.

Count workplace productivity as yet another casualty of the recession, at least in the view of workers at companies that have cut staff.

According to a new survey from work-force management company Kronos Inc. and Harris Interactive, 40 percent of U.S. workers whose companies have had layoffs said productivity within their organizations has been negatively impacted during the past year.

The “Productivity Drain” survey was conducted over the phone by Harris Interactive on behalf of the Workforce Institute at Kronos Aug. 13-16. A sample of 2,005 U.S. adults responded.

Thirty-eight percent of respondents said layoffs had occurred at their companies over the past year, according to the survey.

More from The Charlotte Business Journal.

If you're at work right now, wishing you could run out of your office door screaming, here's a few distractions to make you chuckle. (You don't need sound, so no one has to know. *wink*)

Now, get back to work!
