How the Buddy Hour can supercharge your productivity
Productivity is a term that crops up in the workplace a lot, and with pressure rising for efficiency within businesses, it’s become harder to focus on a task, particularly tasks that may not be as interesting. For some professionals it’s may not be the task, but a specific time of the day that sees their attention span narrowing. Research has found that social pressure can improve performance and productivity, which is one of the reasons that our services include a Buddy Hours solution.
What is Social Pressure?
Social pressure is essentially the presence of another person, which in theory heightens the demands placed on someone to achieve their end goal. Having another person around triggers mirror neurons, which causes the individual to mirror the feelings of those around them, or in this case, causing someone to perform equally or better than the other person.
This can also be known as body doubling. Mainly seen with individuals who have ADHD to help complete everyday tasks and keep focus, body doubling is the practice of working alongside another person. Completing the same task or simply sitting in the same room, either way is sufficient to help an individual stay on task.
Simply working in the presence of someone, whether that’s physically or virtually, can be enough to keep you on track. As part of our Support solutions, we offer Buddy Hours.
