The ActivTrak Productivity Lab today announced benchmark data for the legal services sector, revealing employee focus sessions lasting approximately 16 minutes each - or 15% longer than their cross-industry peers - despite an average of 160 interruptions per day.
The Productivity Lab analyzed 446,020 hours from 892 anonymized employees representing more than 540 ActivTrak legal services customers to understand digital work day activities and habits. Benchmark data showed that these employees spend an average 6.8 hours per day on productive digital activity, with four breaks per day, at an average of 27 minutes per break. Other findings about how they spend their time include:
Workload data also revealed that 80% of legal services employees are in the healthy utilization1 zone (23% higher than cross-industry peers); 20% of employees are overutilized (35% lower than cross-industry peers); and 0% of employees are underutilized.
According to one legal services reviewer on TrustRadius, "ActivTrak is great for tracking employee engagement, time on task, and alerting on unauthorized use of company assets. It can also help identify potential candidates for burnout."
"Distractions come in many forms and can be a constant source of stress and burnout," said Gabriela Mauch, vice president of ActivTrak's Productivity Lab. "Organizations that take steps to eliminate unnecessary meetings, implement team core hours and establish blocks of focu time can achieve sustainable productivity to improve employee engagement and well-being. The legal services industry is clearly on the right path toward achieving these goals."
