Timing of working time is a way to increase productivity
To plan working hours is quite difficult. Primarily due to the fact that then have to admit to myself that the lion's share of working time spent on simulation activities. Really useful work almost is not performed, much time is spent on theoretical discussions or unplanned interruptions.
Ongoing duration will show an objective picture of the employee's employment during the working day. It is very important to note even the smallest details (a smoke break or a walk for another Cup of coffee). One day to get the real picture would not be enough. Practice shows that the records shall be maintained for at least two weeks and repeat quarterly.
This procedure is not in order to leave your mark in history, and that employee was able to draw the appropriate conclusions and to change their attitude. Such a sober view of the duration of working time will increase efficiency and effectiveness.
Most reliable picture is not in the days of vacations or jobs involving all hands, and in the beginning or in the middle of the month. This should take into account the fact that the official end of the workday with the completion time of the actual match is not always. You're timing for yourself, not for inspection, so put down the real.
Technical features of the timing
Timetable according to which the scheduled working hours of employees, an important thing. But try to conduct your own timing since the morning rise. The starting point is the moment of leaving bed. In this case, monitoring your time will help you not only in work but also in everyday life. You will have time and leisure, and hobby, and to communicate with family.
Any change of activity should immediately fix. In an hour minutes to recover anything is problematic. In the list you need to make phone calls (with whom, about what, duration), responses to letters in email and rest time. With mail and phone calls should also be divided into personal and business, incoming and outgoing.
At first glance an outsider may seem that people in the work, but the result is often close to zero. The timing will help to understand the reasons of such ineffective long work. If not immediately, but gradually, but to accustom himself to self-organization is required. The inventory thing is daunting. But in this case, the results are obvious.
