Miscellaneous Unproductive Time (Carl Schelin)

It has come to my attention recently that many people have been turning in timesheets that specify large amounts of "Miscellaneous Unproductive Time" (code 5300). To our department, unproductive time isn't a problem.

What is a problem is not knowing exactly what people are doing during their unproductive time.

I've attached a sheet specifying a tentative extended job list based on my 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 distribute this as necessary, and let me know about any difficulties.

For your timesheets:

Job number    Explanation 
----------    ----------- 
 5300         Meeting
