How To Motivate Employees To Track Time And To Perform Better?

Many companies still (falsely) believe that making their employees submit Excel timesheets is helping to improve productivity inside the office. This might be a good idea in theory, but reality is another story. When faced with the Excel timesheet template, most employees will try to estimate a whole week’s (or even month’s) activities in one go. This gives very inaccurate data because of our faulty memory and it encourages “sugarcoating” the work hours. On top of this, the “filling the Excel template” kind of activity takes more time that could be used on something productive. In essence, time management shouldn’t be time consuming!

How to Manage Time Keeping With Inevitable Daily Multi-Tasking?

Different researches have proven that multi-tasking is bad for productivity and focusing on only one task at a time will give the best results. Still, I think most people regularly find themselves in situations that need multi-tasking: unexpected phone calls, e-mails with urgent matters, random thoughts about stuff you forgot to do etc. If you also need to keep track of your time while juggling between different tasks, it could get a bit tricky. I’ve found a solution that works best for my workflow and keeps pretty accurate track of all the time I spend on different tasks. Maybe you also find it useful?

3 Main Reasons Why Work In a Tech Start-up Is Never Done

“Isn’t Toggl ready yet?” my non-IT friends often ask me. It sounds like the strangest question to me. How could it be ready?… it is never ready, complete or finished. Working in a tech start-up like Toggl is exciting. The work never stops, there’s something new to do every day. And the workload is always growing – in a good way. Working hard or hardly working? Somehow, for people who haven’t seen it up close, the idea of the workflow in a tech company is actually so far from reality. I must admit, being a marketing person myself, I also had a different idea of it all at first. Today, having been part of the Toggl team (check out who we are) for 7 months, I feel like “I can see clearly now…” From my non-tech point of view, the reasons that prevent Toggl ever getting “ready” are:
