You should change your Workplace Time Zones
Its great you hired the perfect team. Its great you designed the perfect training plan. Its great you have the best mentors around.
But, what if your employees are not managing the office time perfectly? What if they are not productive enough? You need to ask. You need to ask yourself the question — what are the time zones at your office. How do the employees spend their time during the working hours.
Few examples of unproductive time zones:
Gossip Time- This is when your employees tend to talk about work, workers, the bosses and what not; Specially, prior to the arrival of the boss at the office. Various gossip zones are active for various departments specially the ones like business development, digital marketing and operations.
Lunch Time — This time zone is generally automatically extended. A 30 minutes lunch may extend to 1 hour — 1 hour to 1.5 hours and so on. Generally managers go late for lunches, and thus they may not be monitoring the exact lunch timing for most employees.
Feeling Sleepy Time — Here employees feel like taking a nap of sorts. This generally happens post lunch and is a general human tendency. But being habitual of sleeping during afternoon hours is not only hazardous to ones professional efficiency but also bad for health.
Snacks Time — This is when employees tend to have snacks, biscuits, something light to fulfil the early evening crave. It could well be chocolates or pastries as well for some.
If this is the timeline at your workplace, you need to rethink your strategy.
You need to start tracking your employees carefully and gain detailed insights of their workplace behaviour.
