If you’re going to work overtime, do it right!

Today, we’d like to talk about something everyone does even though almost no one wants to: work overtime. Why? There’s almost no other country on earth where workers log as many overtime hours as they do in Germany. According to statistics portal Statista, we accrued around a billion unpaid overtime hours in 2014. And 608 million paid hours on top of that. That’s almost 50 million more than in the previous year. And in the current year, roughly one in five employees believes they are expected to be available and flexible to work past their contractually obligated working hours.

 

Heavy Briefcases? An Anachronism

The number of uncounted hours is tough to estimate – but let’s set that aside for a moment. In this kind of working environment, it’s par for the course that a company’s workers will need to take files home with them to finish up in their home office that they didn’t have time for during the day.

 

Keeping an eye on data security?

Here’s what many people don’t know: anyone who does take files home with them could be violating the company’s data security guidelines – and unwittingly giving their employer a grounds for dismissal. Companies with a personnel policy that expects employees to take office files with them when they leave should adjust their data security guidelines accordingly and set up a secure procedure for doing so. A procedure that conforms with the Federal Data Protection Act and prevents the loss of important or confidential files as effectively as possible.

 

There is a better solution

Of course, if you want to set things up right from the start, you should invest in an Enterprise Content Management system. It allows employees access at home to all important data and files without these needing to physically leave the company or be stored on your employee’s laptop hard drive. Working at home is also more efficient with an ECM, meaning employees don’t need to invest as much effort and time. And if that’s not enough: carrying around all those files is bad for your back – and “good” for a few extra days of sick leave.
