A Pleasurable Getaway or Even Worse? The Impact of Procrastination in Workplaces

Delaying an intended action is a very common human behavior. “I’ll do it later” is a frequently used justification for putting off some of the necessary tasks in our lives, such as going to dentist, mowing the garden, or tidying the house. However, such delays in general life seem to have a similar yet different manifestation in workplace context, where tasks could be more straightforward and results could affect work outcomes or other efficiency of colleagues. In this talk, I aim to highlight the main dynamics that characterize workplace procrastination through a series of empirical studies. Furthermore, I intend to discuss potential ways to eliminate the negative outcomes associated with workplace procrastination.
