Worklytics Benchmarks: See How You Compare

The pandemic didn’t just change where we work.

It also changed how we get work done.

That’s left a lot of us wondering … Are we doing it right? 

Is it normal to spend so much time in meetings?

Is it normal to get this many Slack DMs?

Is it normal to need to collaborate with this many people?

When we were all on the office floor together, leaders could see what was working – and what wasn’t.

But with more and more work being done digitally, we don’t have that same line-of-sight into what’s happening.

Our goal at Worklytics is to help your team work better.

And one way we’ll do that is through our newest offering: Benchmarks.

With Benchmarks, you’ll be able to quickly see how your company compares to peers’ across all of the metrics that Worklytics tracks. 

What You’ll Get Access To

In this initial Benchmarking Report, we’ve started with our 19 most widely-cited metrics, including: 

  • Workday Span
  • Focus Time
  • Time Spent Collaborating
  • Meetings Attended
  • Slack Messages Sent

For each metric, you’ll see the distribution of values for our included population along with percentiles and the normal range. The data will be shown in aggregate and also cut so you can see how Managers compare to Individual Contributors.

Things can fluctuate. And, right now, they’re fluctuating a lot. So we’ll also show a trendline that lets you see how the normal range has moved over time.

How To Use This Data

We expect clients will use this data in two ways:

  1. What’s good look like? 

The next time your exec team asks, you’ve got data to answer. 

And while we believe that “good” depends on your organization, “normal” is a great place to start. The normal range included in this report shows the range of values for the middle 50% of people — groups outside of this range likely need your attention the most. 

That said, it’s important to note that normal ranges don’t always follow best practices, which we address through our outcome driver research. For example, knowledge workers with at least 3.5 hours of daily focus time tend to report being more productive than those with less focus time. But most companies have too little focus time. In this case, your organization might sit close to the median value, but have employees that find it difficult to get things done. 

  1. What should we prioritize? 

If you see that teams have drifted outside that normal range, your next step should be to figure out why. It’s a good excuse to reach out to managers on the team to understand their unique challenges & work together toward a targeted intervention.
