Find out when staff are most productive

by Liz Edwards for blog, EMM

Give staff lots to do on a Tuesday with the option to work away from the office.


According to research from Accountemps, Tuesday is the most productive day of the week for employees. If you have a particularly time-consuming task to tackle, Tuesday’s the day.

Give them the ability to work outside of the office as well, and you may see a major jump in their productivity.

62% feel more productive working outside of the office.

TechRepublic covered a survey where 62% of respondents said they felt more productive working outside of the office, and 72% work remotely at least once a month.

If you have the right insight about what your staff are doing, you can give them the right tools. To get hold of this data, you’ll need to monitor what your staff are currently doing, and see if it fits with what you want them to do.

It may not sit comfortably with you to monitor your people, but often there are valid reasons that businesses need to keep an eye on what mobile data employees are accessing. We’ve lots of stories like the following from our customers.

  • * A European legal firm were not compliant to regulations because their staff were downloading confidential customer data from their personal smartphones.
  • * A US Insurance broker had a small sales team that rarely worked from the office. Their teams had access to work apps, but they were not closing as much business projected. It turned out they were also spending large amounts of time using their work smartphones for personal use, watching sports games. (See also our blog on streaming a rugby match  )
  • * A UK consultant saw £124k in overages when he traveled from the UK for work in the Middle East. He was on Netflix and thought he was on the hotel WiFi.
  • * One of our US customers asked us to help find out what sites their employees were visiting because they needed help in controlling mobile data costs. Shockingly the use of dating sites such as TINDER was the culprit. It turned out about a third of employees were not following up customer leads, but were looking for love. (See our blog on Finding love on Valentines day )

Once you know what your staff are using, you can apply the right policies. It all comes down to controlling costs, ensuring secure access and making sure your staff are productive.
