Do your employees turn up at 9am and leave at 5pm, having completed their day’s work. Was it satisfying for you to watch them beavering away? Were they productive? How much more productive might they have ben working from home or from their local coffee shop?
Employees often find certain tasks difficult to complete in the office – report writing, coding and anything else that demands a high level of concentration and a low level of distraction.
Yet, few employees take the logical step of closing or shrinking their office space and allowing employees to work where they feel most comfortable. Few even experiment – and measure performance/productivity differences.
But surely its worth a try?
