This work shows the result of a study, in which the work behavior of employees of 5 organizations was measured: 2 public and 3 private, over a period of 6 months. For greater accuracy, an incident management software and biometric fingerprint readers were used to identify the exact time of arrival and departure from the workplace, as well as the evaluation of its assistance with respect to labor policies and labor regulations settled down. The behavior graphs indicate that the productivity of an organization does not depend directly on the assistance of the staff and the time spent in the workplace, but on how effective it is. The results also show that quality work is better than work with a strict schedule. Employers who wish to be more competitive may consider implementing alternative work days, where the level of productivity increases and employees are more committed and with better working conditions.
