What are you up to during a conference call?
Some of the people on this call might be in the bathroom, or the ER.
Data provided by InterCall , the world's biggest conference call company, and collated by the Harvard Business Review, revealed what people actually do while they're on a conference call. According to the survey, which allowed multiple responses:
- 65 percent said they do other work, whatever that may be.
- 63 percent said they send an email.
- 55 percent said they eat or make food.
- And 47 percent said they go to the restroom, in a pretty gross display of multitasking.
