Tracking employee time is imperative in assisting with productivity and staying on task. A recent survey by Salary.com looks into why and how employees may be losing focus.
How can you, as an employer, boost employee productivity without hampering employee morale? While blocking personal sites might be the first thing that comes to mind, 60% of respondents said they would just use another device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Additionally, while employers list workplace distractions as chatting with coworkers or checking social media, employees do not feel the same. Only 18% of employees surveyed listed the internet as a true distraction; according to 47% of respondents, the biggest waste of time was meetings.
One of the easiest ways to increase productivity, based on 71% of respondents’ answers: more frequent, short breaks. These brief periods of downtime could be used to check social media, grab a snack, chat with coworkers, or do whatever else they might need during that time. Many CEOs are recognizing the cultural shift taking place into a work-life “blend,” as opposed to a balance. For instance, many employees answer emails or do other small, work-related tasks after the workday has ended, which more than compensates for these little breaks throughout the day. Whatever you choose to do, make it clear and consistent in your employee policy.
