  • Productivity: Is timing everything?Productivity facts every employee should know.
  • Tuesday packs the biggest productivity punch. So if you need to work on a big project, save it for a Tuesday.According to a recent Accountemps survey, 39% of human resources (HR) managers interviewed rank Tuesday as the most productive day of the week. Thursday and Friday tied for the least productive day, each receiving just 3% of the response.
  • The fact that Tuesday was cited as the most productive day of the week comes as no surprise. It’s held the top spot in similar productivity surveys since 1987.
  • Is it hard to focus on the task at hand? It must be Friday, when employees are least productive.

  • Try focusing on critical tasks in the morning for optimum productvity.
