How to Analyze and Improve Employee Productivity

Measuring employee productivity is not an easy proposition. In actuality, it can be quite difficult with factors such as operating processes and different job roles adding to the complexity. What may be productive to one team may not be for others. Additionally, what constitutes productivity and what do you measure?

  • Is it the amount of time spent on calls with customers?
  • Is it a project completed on time?
  • Is it time spent on action items in meetings?
  • Is it the number of emails going back and forth in a day?
  • Is it time spent in specific software applications?
  • Are all of the software applications used even necessary?

These are the kind of questions many organizations ask themselves. However, monitoring and analyzing employee productivity has been quite the challenge. Often there is no real track record to know what a productive employee even looks like, much less how to measure productive behavior.

How Can ActivTrak Help You Analyze Employee Productivity?

Measure Employee Productivity

Start the process of improving productivity by measuring it. ActivTrak lets you assign “Productive” and “Unproductive” labels to logged activities. These productivity values are given a standard set of colors that are visible on all reports and screenshots.

  • Productivity charts show productive, unproductive, and passive time recorded.
  • Compare trends by displaying the data by days, weeks, months, and years.
  • View productivity data by users to identify top performers on your team.
  • Sort the chart to highlight both the top productive users and the top unproductive users to see patterns for improvement.
  • Identify frequently used unproductive apps or websites and set usage limits.

Discover Employee Productivity Coaching Opportunities

Employee productivity is something that can always be improved upon. With ActivTrak’s insights, managers can identify employees who are underperforming and why before they become disengaged.

  • Use Activity Logs to understand employee workflows and where time can be better allocated.
  • Consult the Top Users report to discover who is the most and least productive.
  • Set goals, test strategies, review the results and reduce wasted time based on your research.
  • Receive notifications when employees deviate from agreed-upon policies.
  • Gamify operations and encourage friendly competition with a Top Groups leaderboard.

Develop an Environment that Fosters Productivity

If taken too far, buckling down on productivity can actually have an adverse effect. It’s important to encourage breaks and healthy work habits, along with room for “fun time” while on the clock.

  • Manage breaks, time off, and personal usage of company machines via the dashboard.
  • Place time limits and set up automated responses to trigger when the time is used up.
  • Remind users to take breaks after working for long periods of time via pop-up messages.
  • Share leader boards to encourage employees to take ownership of their productivity.

Make Productivity a Team Effort

Invite your employees to become part of a team effort to make themselves, and the business, more successful. Remind everyone that success is dependent on everyone, therefore every person has value.

  • Gamify operations and encourage friendly competition with a Top Groups leaderboard.
  • Discover stellar work effort and recognize employees who are quiet about their achievements.
  • Create a balanced scorecard to measure performance conducive for each department.
  • Leverage productivity reports to find the right workload balance for each team member.
