Why do a FocusQuiz?

What is the issue?
We are busier and more tired than ever, yet we get less done. We are constantly distracted: by colleagues, emails and notifications, and by our own mind. We are less and less able to concentrate, it takes us more time to do our work and the stress levels continue to increase. How nice would it be if you could make yourself and your team more resilient to distractions and stress, and ultimately be more productive?

For whom is the FocusQuiz?

FocusQuiz for teams
This quiz is suitable for anyone who sometimes struggles with being distracted. So almost everyone! Do you find yourself wondering: what did I actually do today? Why do I feel like I’m always running behind on time? Why am I not in control of my schedule? How can my team become more productive? How do I decrease absence time in my team? The answer is FOCUS.

Some scientific facts


The number of stimuli that come our way every day has increased fivefold since the 1980s.


If a colleague seated next to you makes a phone call, your productivity drops on average by 60%.

Open office

Due to all the distractions, working in an open office costs an extra 89 minutes per day on average and results in 62% more sick days.
