The most productive day of the week is Tuesday. Monday was the second most popular answer, although it appears to be losing favor: Only 12 percent of respondents ranked Monday as most productive, compared to 26 percent in a 2002 survey.
The national poll included responses from 150 senior executives — including those from human resources, finance and marketing departments — with the nation’s 1,000 largest companies.
Executives were asked, “In your opinion, on which day of the week are employees generally most productive?”
The results mirror previous surveys conducted in 2002, 1998 and 1987.
“In addition to serving as a ‘catch-up’ day after the weekend, Monday is when many regularly scheduled meetings occur, which can decrease the time available to complete tasks,” said Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps. “Many view Tuesday as an opportunity to focus their efforts and establish momentum for the rest of the week.”
One thing the study didn’t address is when Monday is a holiday like yesterday’s Presidents’ Day. Does that shift everything forward a day? If so, then this week, Wednesday is the new Tuesday?
