Medical Professionals Top the List of “Least Productive without Coffee”

I thought it would be fun to share a study I just read while drinking my coffee this morning. 

According to a new survey commissioned by CareerBuilder and Dunkin’ Donuts, the top 5 professions with the highest percentage of workers stating they are less productive without coffee are:

1) Nurses
2) Physicians
3) Hotel workers
4) Designers/Architects
5) Financial/Insurance sales representatives

Big shocker…right?  😉 

With the 24/7 nature of our industry, it’s no surprise that we’re all tired.  One of our nurses regularly drinks a mix of Gatorade and 5 Hour Energy shots, and none of us were surprised when a picture (right) surfaced of one of our nursing/therapy agent’s morning caffeine routine.

“The Coffee Effect”

  • 40% of American workers aged 18 to 24 admit they can’t concentrate as well without coffee.  43% of workers aged 18 to 34 stated they have lower energy if they don’t drink coffee.
  • More than 2 in 5 American workers claim they are less productive without coffee.  Workers in the Northeast U.S. stated they are the most dependent on coffee, with 48% of people claiming they are less productive without coffee, compared to the South at 45%, West at 44%and Midwest at 34%.
  • 37% of American workers drink 2 or more cups of coffee during their workday.

How about you?  Do you need coffee?

    Very interesting! I would say that I do not rely on coffee like I used to. I used to need coffee everyday otherwise I was just tired all day. Now I will not let myself get Starbucks everyday…There are days where I am tired and need a pick me up, so I will run and get some coffee. I feel so happy when I do get my coffee, I can see why it is so easy to get addicted to! Great blog and thanks again!
