The Productivity Problem in Academia


Anna Auerbach


Annie Dean


Working in academia is often a one-size-fits-all experience marked by long hours spent in a single location. Many university staff members are expected to be on campus during set hours, even when they are not lecturing or holding office hours. This is not always conducive to productivity, especially when considering factors like average commute time and core job functions such as grading, researching, and writing. In this talk, we'll reveal how flexibility data can help combat this problem.
