Let’s make sure the team is up for the journey.
Employees are like athletes, performance diminishes over time especially when teams are running flat out for weeks and months on end.
For years researchers have been telling us that our brains weren’t built to focus for eight-full hours a day.
A recent study by DeskTime, a productivity app that tracks employees’ computer time, shows that top performers work for 52 consecutive minutes on average and then they take a break — away from their computers.
A 17-minute break is all it takes to re-energize, think clearer, and improve productivity. Offering employees onsite massage for those 17-minutes has the added benefit of reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension; and if anyone is stuck on a problem, massage helps rewire the brain so ideas can flow.
