The benefits of saving time at work and increasing productivitiy

Productive employees make profitable businesses. In fact, research shows that productive companies have 30-50% higher operating margins than their less productive counterparts.

But what does a productive employee look like, exactly?

Generally speaking, a good productivity percentage is somewhere between 70-75%. That means employees spend about 70% of their time working while the rest is free to relax and recharge. This allows for maximum profit without risking becoming burned out or overworked.

Here are some of the main benefits of time-saving and efficiency in the workplace:

Don’t let yourself become overworked. You’ll be much less stressed and more engaged at work when you have the tools to automate manual processes and nip unnecessary busywork. 

All work and no play makes a star employee into an ex-employee. With better time management software, individuals can achieve a healthier work-life balance, leading to increased job satisfaction and overall well-being.

Having more time and mental bandwidth means you’ll be able to better analyze information, explore alternatives and make well-informed decisions.

By the numbers: how saving time at work impacts your bottom line

Low productivity costs employers about $1.8 billion annually. But what’s causing the low production?

About 91% of surveyed employees said they would be more effective and efficient at work if they were more organized, so let’s start there.

For influencer marketers, GRIN’s Creator Management platform is the ultimate time-saving solution. With automation tools to streamline each step of the influencer marketing workflow, employees can be confident that everything they need to succeed is right at their fingertips.

Employers aren’t the only ones feeling the benefits of saving time at work. Research shows that overworked and fatigued employees lose out on nearly $2,000 per employee each year. Put that money back in your (or your employees’) pocket with a software solution that will make your life easier (and richer).

Employee burnout is real. Some of the leading causes include:

  • Long hours
  • Excessive stress
  • Unrealistic results and expectations
  • Inadequate resources or support
  • Poor work-life balance

Fortunately, we know a tool that can help with all of them.

More than 70% of employees worry about stressors during work. To break it down further, 28% spend less than 1 hour per week worrying about stressors, 50% spend 1 to 5 hours, 16% spend 5 to 10 hours, and 6% spend more than 10 hours.

A recent survey found that:

  • 91% of employees believe that better time management would reduce stress at work.
  • 90% agreed it would increase productivity. 
  • 86% said that it would improve their focus on tasks. 
  • 82% agreed that it would give them more confidence at work. 
  • 74% said it would result in better workplace relationships. 

If you want happy, confident, and productive employees, the solution is simple: Empower them to free up bandwidth by investing in tools that make their life easy. GRIN can help with that.

  • Leverage productivity tools. 
  • Take breaks.

There are plenty of ways to save time at work, but here are the big three:

  2. Minimize distractions: A few distractions throughout the day are welcome, but too many will eat up your time and kill your productivity. Consider taking a few big chunks of time throughout the day where you pause your notifications and turn off your phone so you can get the most out of your time. 
  3. Automate repetitive tasks: Identify tasks that you find yourself doing repeatedly and see if there are opportunities to automate them. Many routine and repetitive tasks can be automated using various tools and software.
