The Value of Productivity

WhAt the course offers

We all understand that increased productivity leads to better performance, but many underestimate how much of an impact employee engagement and productivity affect an organization. There have been numerous studies designed to analyze these effects; and overall the findings speak for themselves:

  • An average worker is only productive for two hours and 53 minutes out of an eight hour day (Inc)
  • The average employee spends 13 hours a week on emails alone, which accounts for roughly 28% of the workweek (Attentiv)
  • Increasing employee engagement investments by 10% can increase profits by $2,400 per employee per year (TalentCulture)
  • Multitasking can decrease productivity by 40% (CoSchedule)
  • Companies with engaged employees outperform those without by 202% (Business 2 Community)
