What Men Ought to do in Bed, Instead of During Meetings

Video conference company Highfive studied the level of concentration and online distraction during meetings. There was a significant difference between men and women...


A study involving 1,200 employees showed that people are not always focused. Surprisingly - or perhaps not? -, men are on average 10% more distracted. Text messaging is the main perpetrator: 36% of the men and 25% of the women confess doing this. Emailing and using the internet remains popular: 27% versus 17%. A minor 10% also likes to check up on his favourite sports team during meetings.


Women leave it at 4 text messages, emails or posts on social media. Men send about 6. Of course, this could also be because the fact that 55% of the men bring their laptop along, while only 33% of the women does this.


During a video conference, women confessed that they are mainly worried about how they look on pictures, while what men fear most is a poor or frozen image.


Yet another applause for the women: of those who dare to daze during a meeting, 64% was male. So guys, keep your eyes open and catch your sleep in the bed, not at the conference table.
