This brilliant infographic from Investmentzen.com illustrates why every weekend should be 3 days long, but more specifically why every work week should be 4 days in duration.
Clearly, the evidence favors a less intense work week. Although workers in developed nations are slowly realizing such long work weeks are detrimental to their health, the phenomenon remains.
So, how do we make this a reality for workers? Well, an ideal solution would help workers maintain their levels of productivity while working fewer hours, and arguably the intensity of these hours, too. Although there are plenty of gadgets and gizmos that claim to increase productivity and reduce the number of steps in any given workflow, only a few really harness said power.
When looking at hours worked per capita, one may notice how roughly 50 percent of full time employees spend more than 40 hours per week in the office. Additionally, one might wonder which professions have employees who are most likely to spend over 40 hours per week at the office. Here are some further statistics on the matter. See if you can’t find a trend in the following professions:

Nobody considers any of these occupations easy or stress-free, but that’s not all that they have in common. They’re all paper-based industries with document-intensive procedures that emphasize compliance and great customer/client service. Employees in these lines of work also spend a considerable amount of time working, 50 or more hours per week.
Let’s look at a couple of case studies from 3 eFileCabinet users belonging in the aforementioned industries to illustrate how eFileCabinet can facilitate a balance between work and life outside the office.
CJ Vang, a Farm Bureau Financial insurance agent, uses eFileCabinet to stay ahead of the competition without straining his life outside work, thanking eFileCabinet for having “made my life simple.”
Carlene Patterson of Ascension Financial appreciates how eFileCabinet has not only made her more efficient, but also given her the freedom to travel more frequently and reduce the number of steps in her daily workflow.
Deanna Hancock of DMH Contract Nursing Services claims eFileCabinet has “become a dynamic and integral part of my system,” enabling her to access the information she needs while maintaining HIPAA compliance.
Stacy Mahar is a paralegal with J.E. Sutton and Associates, noting “eFileCabinet has been beneficial and allowed us to be more productive while expending less time on tasks. It definitely cuts down the aggravation of searching through extensive paper documents to find a single page.”
