Collaboration workload analytics

Collaboration workload analytics

What is collaboration workload analytics?
Collaboration workload analytics focuses on verifying how much time teams spend on collaboration activities including email and chat communication as well as the time spent in meetings. You can gather the data through surveys by asking employees how much time they devote to synchronous (i.e. meetings) and asynchronous (email and chat) communication. Alternatively, you can turn to your existing systems such as Office 365, G-Suite, Slack to check how much time is spent on collaboration. It’s vital to conduct the analysis in an ethical way – collect team data rather than individual data. Focus on analyzing how people work instead, without paying attention to their personal traits.

What is the goal? 10 hours per week per employee (20 meetings, 30 min each), and 3 hours per day (6 meetings, 30 min each) per employee. 

Why is it important? Keeping the meeting time at the optimum level and establishing meeting routines within the team (team bonding and daily status check-ins) will let teams collaborate seamlessly and achieve goals without overwhelming employees with screen time.
