Save over $17k/FTE/year with Work Management

The University of Texas has completed a study1 into idle time in the work place and discovered that:

  • 78.1% of employees experience idle time
  • 21.7% of employees experience idle time daily
  • 7.4 billion hours of idle time are experienced annually

Based on average Australian weekly earnings2, this represents a cost of over $297B per year.

Idle time excludes breaks and other known times employees have off, making this a significant waste of valuable employee time.

Organisations that implement our work management solution decrease idle time by over 20% in the first 3 months, with further improvements on an ongoing basis. Based on the Australian workforce3, this will save your organisation at least $16,700 per FTE annually.
