Word on the Street: Workplace distractions

If you have ever found yourself struggling to concentrate at work, you are not alone, according to a recent CareerBuilder survey of the top 10 workplace distractions.

From meetings to smoke breaks, there is no lack of distractions that reduce productivity at work.

The survey, which was conducted over the course of a month, found that cellphones and text-messaging are the major obstacles for about 52 percent of employees.
