Prodoscore is the industry most prominent employee-based transparency and productivity software, today released exclusive data that exposes the disparity in daily productivity between employees with employees who are low-performing contributing around 90 minutes working productively. The results of the study suggest that employees who are low-performing comprise around 10% of the workforce.
These insights into productivity of employees are vital to any business as they look at their return-to-work plans and assess their employees’ performance.
Analyzing the data from January 2020 through the end of April in 2021 Prodoscore looked at more than 21.7 million information points gathered from more than 3000 U.S.-based workers and over 140 companies. Employees who had low productivity scores accounted for 11.7 percent of the sample. The same was true for employees who had average productivity ratings made up 72.7 percent of the sample. employees with high-performance rating, 16.1% of the sample.
“One of the essential benefits of our technology is that it creates visibility into how employees are engaged each day,” says David Powell, President of Prodoscore. The mere fact of doubling the 90 minutes of work time of a worker who is not productive by 180 minutes (3 hours) is just 40 percent of the time in an 8-hour day – but not quite the degree of engagement you would like to observe among your employees. The data we have analyzed also reveal the troubling trend that, according to the number of hours you work, your least productive employees earn less per hour than highest efficient employees.”
The Least Productive Employees Earn More per Hour
For an employee who is working for 90 minutes per day, and earning $60,000 per year, converts into an hourly wage of $121.50 and an adjusted annual wage of $252,653. For an employee who has average productivity rates the compensation is reduced to $53 an hour, and an adjusted pay of $111,000. For those who are the best performers the compensation is reduced to $44/hour and an annual salary adjusted of $91,254.
Gap Times Range Between 45%-80%
When low-productivity employees contribute just 90 minutes, approximately 20% of an eight-hour working day The majority of the day is deemed “gap time” – time which is not accounted for. A low-productivity employee is losing 48,000 dollars of the $60,000 annual salary.
Average and high-productivity people are productive for about 4 hours (240 minutes) with around 58.5 percent of their workday is recorded as a gap. They typically begin their day earlier and finish later than those with low productivity.
The gap time for all three levels of productivity is greatest at the start in the morning. The low-productivity group has approximately two hours to demonstrate less gap time, indicating that they’re slower to begin their day, as compared to an hour for average or high productivity employees.
Average and high-productivity employees may experience bad weeks and days However, the research indicates that they are only bad days in addition, the employees “bounce back” relatively quickly (within 1-1.5 weeks). Workers with low productivity who make gains take longer (more than three weeks).
Productivity Across Five Activities
The study examined 3 levels of productivity, taking a look at five applications in business:
Email Highly productive employees send nearly 8 times more emails than to those with low productivity and those with average productivity send about three times as many emails as employees with lower productivity.
The most productive staff members send 30.5 emails every day.
* Employees with average productivity send 13.6 emails every day
* Employees with low productivity are able to send 3.9 emails each day
Time for calendars The most highand average-productive employees use roughly 1.4 times as much calendar hours than those who are less productive.
Highly productive employees get 82.4 minutes of calendar activities
Average productivity employees get 72.8 minutes of calendar-related activity
* Employees who are low-productivity are allowed 54.6 minutes per day of calendar activities
Chat and messaging: Highly productive employees send four times more chat messages than employees who aren’t as productive who have an average level of productivity, send 2.5 times more chat messages than employees with low productivity.
Highly productive workers send out a rate that is 13.6 chat messages each day
* Employees with average productivity have a chat-time of 8.6 chat messages each day
Low-productivity employees are able to send 3.4 daily chats
Video and Voice:Highly productive employees have two times the amount of video and voice activity than employees with low productivity. Meanwhile, employees who are average performers have 1.6 times the amount of video and voice activities as those with low productivity.
Highly productive employees make use of video and voice 47.8 minutes per day.
* Average productivity employees utilize video and voice 38.2 minutes per day.
* Low-productivity employees utilize video and voice 23.7 minutes per day.
CRM: Customer Relationship Management (CRM): Highproductivity employees have about 1.6 times more activity in CRM as those with lower productivity.
Highly productive employees complete 11.3 daily activities in CRM
Average-productivity employees perform 7.5 hours of CRM-related activities per day
Employees with low productivity have 5.9 days of CRM-related activities
documents:Highly efficient employees use more than two times as many documents than employees who are less productive ,while those with average productivitywith average productivity use 1.7 times more documents than employees who are low-performing.
Highly productive employees complete 3.6 documents each day
* Employees with average productivity are working on 2.8 documents every day
* Employees with low productivity work on 1.6 documents each day
their highest level – not only for the benefit of the organization, but for their own benefit as well,” Powell says. Powell. “A low level of productivity for an employee can be attributed to a lack of satisfaction with their job or other problems at work, or at home. What would it be like that instead of the employee being dismissed or leaving for poor productivity, a higher degree of support is provided? This information can allow for more open and honest discussions between employees and their managers on work performance, and can help avoid the loss of employees – which in the current labor marketplace, has vital importance.”
Bart Swecker, Ph. D and an active participant in the Prodoscore Research Council, added “The ability to provide the development and training opportunities offered by organizations for specific individuals is of huge impact at the corporate level With increasing numbers of organizations pondering whether a return to the office could look like, data will aid in making those crucial choices. An organization is now able to find employees who aren’t contributing , and then work on further education or coaching. Finding out what makes your most efficient employees productive, and then employing those findings to attract or train new talent could help ensure successful outcomes.
In particular, the information aspect that is most shocking with this data is the significant differences in the number of emails and chats plus messages between groups with high and low productivity. In combination, the gap between 44 (high messages and emails) in comparison to 7 (low messages and emails) is significant and provides leaders the opportunity to inquire about the “why” with an measurable metric for the inquiry.”
