New data from the productivity platform Hive shows how productive employees are at different hours during the day and points out that women were winning in the work completion department: “The data shows that women complete 10% more tasks than men. But are they assigned the same amount of work? It turns out that 54.9% of tasks are assigned to women, compared to 45.1% assigned to men. Both genders complete tasks assigned to them at a similar rate (66%),” the report states.
The results were based on anonymous information from more than 3,000 women and men who use the Hive platform.
Here are the percentages of messages that include these words at work:
Women were also found to send “20% more messages than” men.
Here’s the “productivity by hour:”
The data also shows that while “women assign 20% more tasks to women,” men do the same to their gender at the same percentage and women completed 3.59% of their work on the weekends, while men completed 4.07% of it at that time.
Pooja Hoffman, Director of Marketing at Hive, commented on the research in a statement:
“Gender equality in the workplace is a multifaceted issue. … It’s difficult to solve what we don’t know, which is why identifying data points wherever we can is a hugely important step in the right direction. This report is a temperature check — it’s only the beginning for what’s possible with productivity data, and proof that we can use insights as the basis for tackling some of the biggest issues of our time,” she said.
