Effective performance explained

Effective performance involves much more than just the speed or indeed the effort which people are seen to be applying at a point in time.

Effective performance is the real productivity measure of a worker or group of workers. It is the work content set against the attendance time. This is a more accurate reflection of the ‘output’ measured against the cost of a shift or day or week, which could well include wasted, ineffective or lost time.
