This work productivity infographic explores how effectively people use their time. From PGi, Winding Down the Workforce examines whether or not working longer hours makes people more productive. By analyzing and compiling data from the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development and The Economist, PGi visually shows how a lack of separation between personal and professional time is reducing work productivity.
While research shows longer hours do not equate to more productive workforces, an accompanying article offers insight into more practical ways to increase work productivity. Ruthless prioritizing of tasks and having a solid strategy are both tools to employ. Being realistic about goals, investing in help and carving out (and protecting) personal time are also instrumental to being productive.
