ShopTalk poll 11.20.13: How many hours do you work in a week?

Poll

In a typical week, how many hours do you work?

A recent study on work hours from the Center for Creative Leadership found professionals who carry smartphones as part of their jobs interact with work 13.5 hours every workday, and 72 hours per week, which includes weekend work.

But smartphones are the only factor to blame for long hours, the study notes. Slow computers, unnecessary emails, meetings with no decisions made and poorly planned projects are among some of the big time wasters that draw out the day, and ultimately the work week.

What about you? In a typical week, how many hours do you work? Take our poll to the right.
