Senior Managers Recognizes, the 'How to Reduce the 55 Hour Work Week Program'.

There is a major problem affecting corporations internationally. Employees are enduring more stress by working at home on weeknights and weekends to catch up on unfinished projects. Nice work-life balance.

Thierry Breten, CEO of Atos, Europe’s largest information technology company, stated: “We are producing data on a massive scale that is fast polluting our working environments and also encroaching into our personal lives.” Mr.Breten has not written an internal e-mail since 2006. Atos will phase out of internal email in favor of a corporate “social media” messaging system by 2014. Large companies like Intel, IBM and Pepsico are also instituting corporate “social media” as a replacement for “epistle length” technological correspondence.

A recent independent survey by Microsoft reveals employees spend over 50% of their time managing eMail and believe over 70% of PowerPoint featured meetings are useless. What is the common denominator for wasted time at work? The answer is poor interaction skills. Millions of dollars a year in the form of lost time re-iterating forgotten Key Topics which reduce bottom line profits. People tend to believe a person’s memory is like a computer and can remember everything heard or seen by pressing the “save” button. This idea is very far from the truth, since the memory is very selective in the information it processes.

The goal of this program is to use technology based messaging in a more efficient and effective manner to reduce the amount of personal time used on weeknights and weekends to catch up on unfinished work projects. For this to happen, the majority of business people communicating with one another must “interact to be remembered.” This includes everyone from Management Teams to the CEO.

A sample fact: a person forgets 90% of communication within 8 hours. Question: how does a message make it into the 10% retention pool?

This program highlights seven facts which form a litmus test to create memorable texts, eMails, video conferences, PowerPoint presentations and in-person meetings. The test for efficiency is to have Key Topics retained during the first exposure.
