### How to Calculate Efficiency?

Employee efficiency is calculated in %, it reflects the correct balance of task input and output of an employees’ working hours. Employees should acquire maximum output while using less input in order to achieve better efficiency. A high efficiency percentage indicates productive use of time, while a low percentage suggests distractions or unproductive activities.

**Organizations can calculate Efficiency in 3 ways: **

**Productive Time****Task Spent****Task Assigned**

You can set this from the admin dashboard settings. After selecting **“Settings”**, you’ll be directed to the settings page. From there, choose **“Efficiency”** and set the criteria on which you want to calculate efficiency.

**Productive Time**

Here, companies *calculate efficiency by comparing the total productive time to the total time at work.*

** Efficiency = (Productive time / Time at work) * 100**

###### Example:

An employee worked for 8 hours in a company. But only 7 hours of his was productive. In this case, the efficiency is calculated as:

I.e, (7/8) * 100

Which is, 87.5.

** So here the employee efficiency is 87.5% **

**Task Spent**

This is where organisations calculate efficiency based on the total time spent on a task. This is *calculated by comparing the ratio of total time spent on tasks to the time at work.*

** (Time spent on tasks/Time at work) * 100**

###### Example:

If an employee spent 6 hours of his 8 hours in doing tasks, then his efficiency is calculated as:

i.e, (6/8) * 100 = 75

**Here, the employee efficiency will be 75 %**.

**Task Assigned**

By selecting this method, an organization can determine efficiency based on the total time allocated to tasks. Here *efficiency is calculated by dividing assigned task time by the time at work.*

** (Task assigned / Time at work) * 100**

###### Example:

An employee was assigned 8 hours of tasks and spent a full 8-hour workday at the office. So, the efficiency will be calculated as:

i.e, (8/8) *100 = 100

** Here,the employee efficiency will be 100%.**
