16% testified that productivity decreases but marginally
When examining whether the level of productivity at work decreases, 16% testified that their productivity at work decreased during the World Cup.
This is compared to 84% who stated that there was no decrease.
Of those who testified that their productivity decreased;
9% testified that the decrease is 50% or more.
5% testified that the decrease in output is about 20%, and another 9% testified that there is a decrease, but a marginal one that is about a 10% decrease.
The data is also the same in the distribution only for men who watch games during work.
Liat Ben Torah Shoshan,
director of the career department at AllJobs, stated: "Since it is difficult to ignore the World Cup celebration, it might be right for employers to take part and allow joint viewing during the work day. We see that employers who have learned to turn it into a celebration in the workplace and hold Happy Hour, activities Formation and branding of an employer, won merit points from the employees, who for their part will invest more."
