Productivity is a measure of the efficiency of a person, machine, factory or system. However, how a person work depends on many factors such as the workplace design. Office workers are working in a workplace wherein they are always sitting. However, sitting for a longer period can also cause discomfort. This research examined if excessive sedentary sitting affects the productivity of computer-based professionals. This was correlational research exploring the intricacies of work dynamics within the workplace. There was a correlation between excessive sitting and productivity while establishing no correlation between the number of break times and productivity. The study concludes that breaking the excessive sitting through three break times within an eight-hour shift decreases the productivity of the worker. Thus, computer-based professionals can have optimum productivity without considering their health.
