The report was based on data from a survey conducted in June 2017 among 2,001 US respondents, all of whom are employed by a company with at least 500 employees and who are "knowledge workers" (they work primarily on a computer and collaborate with other people on projects).
Some 57% of respondents say wasteful meetings get in the way of their work, and 53% say excessive emails get in the way of their work.
Respondents say they spend just 44% of their workweek performing the primary duties of their jobs, on average.
