The Productivity Crisis

One of the biggest obstacles facing the modern-day workforce is a lack of productivity, stemming from wasted time. The workplace’s greatest commodity, attention, is being distributed between hundreds of constantly changing apps, websites, and menial workplace tasks. Ultimately, this generates a large value loss in worker productivity.

The following new study by Asana purports that workers are in fact productive only two days each week- wasting the vast majority of their time on “work about work.” The category “work about work” encompasses the busywork of checking emails, searching online for information, and attending unproductive meetings. Together, these often inefficient tasks consume a huge amount of time that could otherwise be spent on other activities.

Globally, knowledge workers spend nearly 60% of their time on “work about work”, hundreds of hours wasted each year. This begs the question: how can we waste less time and be more productive at work?

An Inc article responding to this Asana study, entitled “New Research Says Workers Are Productive Only Two Days Each Week,” states that the primary distraction for knowledge workers is shifting priorities, an issue that is exacerbated by the wide array of resources that workers must use when searching for information. Until now, there has been no comprehensive and consolidated location on which workers can find the information that they need.

While checking emails and attending meetings with coworkers cannot be easily replaced, the process of searching for information can be completely revolutionized. At Resultid, we simplify this process to cut down on wasted time.

Additionally, the Resultid platform addresses the problem of shifting priorities, by combining dozens of information sources into a single dashboard, to include a total of over 600 million data points. This one stop shop prevents the distraction of switching between dozens of tabs, programs, and searches.
