The WTF curve explaining how corporate work hours are spent


The WTF curve is named after the components that make up the chart: Work, Travel, Food and Meetings.

As one progresses in a career at corporate, the time they spend on each of the 4 tasks is determined by their rank on the corporate ladder.

A new hire is only working, a more advanced employee is traveling some, attending meetings and still working a lot.

Once the manager level is reach a new item appears in the daily calendar and that is lunch meetings.

At the CEO level all events are food focused, including breakfast meetings, golf outings, lunch meetings, dinner parties, galas, etc.
