The High Cost of Multitasking

Multitasking is a must skill for almost every job requirement in the modern society as we are facing more and more tasks to deal with in a regular job setting. As much as employers want their workers to be able to function effectively under multiple, different circumstances, how effective is it actually to be multitask? Researchers have proven that perhaps we waste more time to return to tasks after we are disrupted, and that annually over 450$ billion dollars are used to accommodate the mistakes caused by failing to multitask. With such a tremendous cost, is multitasking as effective as we had hope it would? Check out the following infographic created by fusebox for more stats on the cost of multitasking!
