Your people are your company's principal asset, but the most difficult to manage.

Getting employees to manage their time effectively and reach desired productivity levels is a big challenge in an environment increasingly characterized by interruptions, distracting popup alerts, multi-tasking, e-mail overuse and the proliferation of devices. Time is squandered without employees having any idea where it has gone.
