Productivity is always important for businesses. Many companies pay third parties to help determine what affects the productivity of their employees. With this knowledge, the business can ensure to set their employees up for success. They know what variables in the work place make employees more productive, and what variables decrease productivity. This is important to businesses, because employee time is company time.
When employees are at work, they need to be as productive and efficient as possible. Sometimes this means offering frequent breaks, or even perks in the form of meditation rooms, for employees. While this may sound like something that would decrease productivity, the opposite tends to be true. People working constantly tend to experience a decrease in productivity as time goes on.
