[Infographic] Are Your Workers Slacking Off?

How productive are your workforce?

Click to View

Do you feel your employees spend too much time on Facebook? Are long lunch breaks the norm at your workplace? Desktime have created an interesting infographic showing work habits based on a study of over one million work hours.

Of particular interest is that average workers spend 12% of their work day in social networking sites, like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. This is called unproductive by the graphic but is it really? Is getting intimate with the tools of social media really unproductive, or is it an untapped resource? By adopting an organisation-wide social media strategy has some genuine benefits.

Even if you don’t wish to empower your entire workforce, you can identify and selectively upskill members. The mechanics of administrating a Facebook Page or twitter account for a hobby and for a workplace are very similar. Someone who is managing a hobby or personal page can more readily be used as a backup for your workplace page.

Also by offering your staff an opportunity to use the social media tools at their workplace you also gain additional monitoring and networking resources. For instance participating in Linkedin can allow your workforce to network with others in your industry, locally and globally, as well as suppliers and also help identify prospects. Similarly, news and trends often break in near real time on Twitter. Such intelligence can be invaluable to gain and maintain competitive advantage.

While using social media at work can be seen as unproductive it can also offer new opportunities for both your staff and your organisation. However, it needs guidance and your workers need to be trained, trusted and empowered if you are to fully receive the benefits.

[Infographic] Romance on the Go

Romance Survey

Click to View

Just in time for Valentines Day, Hotels.com have released an interesting infographic based on a survey to identify what people considered to be their ideal romantic weekend. What I found particularly intriguing is that exploring a new city was so popular amongst the 18-29 age range, whereas spending a night in hotel scored so low in the same age range. For the Millenials it’s romance-is-on-the-go.

What’s your perfect romantic weekend?

Psychology of Colour

A wonderful description of the values we place upon certain colours. It’s interesting to see how different shades can alter our perceptions of the people and the world. Does this mean that the completely colour blind are more reliable in their acumen because they are not swayed by the psychology of colours? At least we now understand why corporate blue is so popular on business websites and logos.

The folks at Frugal Dad have compiled a great summary of what we talked about on Twitter last year. In many ways this is the collective consciousness of the social internet. A realtime snapshot of what was important to us in 2011. Some may not find it flattering. Others might find it surprising. But this is us. A collective us. It’s important that we accept that.
