Experts say with the warm weather, workplace productivity traditionally takes a dive in the summer months.

But a new survey found the biggest drains on productivity have nothing to do with the time of year.

Ask.com polled more than 2,000 full-time workers across all types of jobs.

The most common distraction? More than six out of ten said loud colleagues. Forty percent said they'd get more done if co-workers would quit stopping by to chat.

Nearly one in four complained they spent too much time in meetings talking about work than actually working.
