recent study shows that the average person
spends 16.6% of his or her working hours
on paperwork. This is time that
could otherwise be spent on more important
tasks. The study also found that
the more time spent on paperwork, the
unhappier they are with their career.
It is estimated that the yearly cost of
administrative undertakings is over $100
billion in the United States.
