  1. It’s possible that I’ve been doing corporate time studies for clients longer than anyone else. I started in 1990.

    Employees track their own time for two weeks with my portable electronic TimeCorder devices. With every project, there is an inevitable question about employee honesty. I turn that worry upside down.

    My time study projects achieve a remarkable employee participation rate of 94%. The reasons are a) the device is fun and easy to use b) we engage employees by letting them know why the study is being done and asking for their input on activity lists, and on their own ideal time profiles and c) we promise anonymity – we never include employees’ names in our reports.

    In one recent study of unionized government employees, they gave the devices pet names! in another, they asked for MORE TimeCorder devices to ensure the data was complete.
