Productivity in the New World of Work

Randy Gosda

On September 4, approximately 40 representatives from AmCham Sweden member companies learned how organizations today are meeting the challenges of creating and maintaining an effective work/life balance that is aligned with their core business objectives and strategies.

Marcus Jarl, Practice Leader for Productivity at Franklin Covey in Stockholm, presented how the training program, "The Five Choices to Extraordinary Productivity" was implemented for Microsoft in Sweden. Based on brain research, the training enables people to spend more time and energy on the most important objectives in work and life.

Johan Dovander, Chief Financial Officer for Microsoft in Sweden, provided details on how the training was adopted to fit with the company's employees, and the open environment in their offices - where no particular desks are assigned. Instead, people choose the space that best suits their particular responsibilities, whether they are working alone or in a group project. 

In the training that Microsoft undertook, the result has been that per employee, an average of more than six hours of productivity has been gained on a weekly basis. As a result of programs such as this, other organizations learned how they can also combine today's technology, their workplace and people, to become more productive.
