Boost your productivity and your profits with Enterprise Social

 

The average employee spends 16 minutes refocusing after sifting through unnecessary emails. If the average employee tackles their email six times a day, 96 minutes is spent post-email refocusing.

 

If 96 minutes a day is spent refocusing, 8 hours a week is consumed by unproductive email communication, approximately 400 hours annually.

 

In a year, an employee could spend 400 hours…

 

      • focusing on clients
      • pursuing additional clients
      • take on new projects
      • assisting with other projects
      • obtaining further training

 

When considering time as an individual, it is alarming to realize at this moment you are as old as you have ever been and as young as you will ever be. For a company, time is not something to fear unless it is being used inefficiently. Time is something that can never be added or returned. Even the most powerful and successful cannot buy back time.

 

As the messenger, advocate, and vital proponent of a company, an employee’s time is not meant to be idly used. Wasted productivity through irrelevant emails, misunderstood direction, and inability to connect with team members is lost time and a source of frustration.

 

What could your employees do with 400 hours?

Enterprise Social Propels Productivity By Making Your Company

More Efficient

  • Disconnected

    •  Miscommunication – The disjunction seen in the office’s cubicles also seems to exist in unnecessary company meetings, emails, and misinterpreted communications. Time is wasted sifting through emails and resetting after hours spent in directionless meetings. Focusing is a task in itself and productivity is a remote possibility. 
    •  Counterproductive – Everyone has heard the phrase, “time is money” but never has it been so negatively applied. The office is suffering from a lack of productivity. To achieve anything, it seems the whole company is spending an inappropriate amount of hours and way too many dollars. 
    •  Disengaged – It is hard to focus on results and growth when boosting morale is an incessant obstacle. If employees are actually focused on work, it is only for a few moments before the distraction of emails and meetings set in. The environment is almost oppressive and being actively engaged seems like a distant reality.
    •  Inexperienced – Attention is constantly divided when a staggering amount of mediums contain company information and notifications. When individual tasks or team projects are all hosted in different places, employees succumb to information fatigue. Between juggling current projects and new company updates, no has time to familiarize themselves with the latest tools and technologies.

  • Interconnected

    •  Communication – The office can only be described as dynamic. Communication moves in constant flow, but is focused, targeted, and time-efficient. Employees feel connected and in-sync, easily posting and reading at leisure in specific groups, yielding maximum productivity.
    •  Efficient – Profits are a result of productivity, which recently has been apparent throughout the company. Money is saved when employees have the ability to stay fixated on the task at hand. Categorized, purposed postings cut down on the number of meetings and emails, warranting time spent purposefully. 
    •  Engagement – Flexibly connected, employees engage in company-wide conversations, team collaboration, and targeted projects. All-company posts create a community, engaging collaboration and discussion at all levels. No longer do employees feel forced to engage, but are impelled to. 
    •  Savvy – When information, projects, and updates feed constantly to the same place, the playing field is leveled. Introduced in a team setting, time spent educating employees is minimal, leaving more time to work and connect within the company. “Technology” is no longer a word inflicting fear, for the adjustment to the company’s new information hub is not only easy, but proves advantageous for all.
