Identifying Wasted Time

TO: ALL PERSONNEL

FROM: ACCOUNTING




It has come to our attention recently that many of you have been turning in timesheets that specify large amounts of "Miscellaneous Unproductive Time" (Code 5309). However, we need to know exactly what you are doing during your unproductive time.


Attached below is a sheet specifying a tentative extended job code list based on our observations of employee activities.


The list will allow you to specify with a fair amount of precision what you are doing during your unproductive time. Please begin using this job-code list immediately and let us know about any difficulties you encounter.




Thank you,

Accounting
