Efficiency gains

The full Efficiency Software suite is proven to increase employee performance by 1 hour per employee per day. As CtrlWORK helps users maintain energy and concentration levels this solution underpins all our other efforts to increase employee productivity.

The graph on the left shows human energy levels throughout the day. This curve is genetic and engrained in all of us. From this we can tell we are all already working against a natural desire to slow down in the afternoon. We need to ensure our work habits takes this into account and do as much as possible to improve energy levels throughout the day.

The afternoon is when employee productivity suffers most. During this period CtrlWORK monitors users more closely and is more likely to offer pit-stops so that efforts can be sustained for the whole afternoon.

The average computer user spends 3.9 hours each day performing VDU work (CBS, 2012). Expectations are that the time spent performing VDU work will continue to rise. Using CtrlWORK; average typing and reading speeds increase by 11.3% and keyboard and mouse errors fall by 2.4%, giving us a 15 minute per day minimum efficiency gain (Van den Heuvel et al., 2002; Hedge & Evans, 2001). This means the efficiency gain of CtrlWORK per employee is:

Per Day 15 Minutes
Per 5 Day Week 1 Hour 15 Minutes
Per Month 5 Hours
Per year 60 Hours or 8 Work Days

Including bank holidays and annual leave allowance (averaged at 25 days per year) we work roughly 227 days each year. Based on this information individual employee productivity will rise by 56 hours and 45 minutes per year.

If we scale this up to 100 employees that's 5675 hours, around 756 working days or the equivalent of 3.3 employees gained each year in increased employee performance.
