What can the movie Office Space teach us about crowdsourcing?

The term worker efficiency is one of those not-so-sexy, but massive advantages of cloud labor for businesses versus traditional employee structures, but what does worker efficiency actually mean?

Worker efficiency is the percentage of full potential that a worker is currently producing. Its something that's hard to measure, but we all know it's not at 100%.

Remember that quote from the movie "Office Space" where the main character who works at Bioware admits, "I'd say in a given week, I probably only do about 15 minutes of real, actual work." I hope its not that bad in your company, but I'm sure a quick internet analysis of workers in many companies would show a staggering metric on Facebook, YouTube, or other sites where salaried time is being wasted.

CloudFactory, by nature, guarantees 100% efficiency. Workers are only paid from the second they accept one of your tasks to the second it's complete. Do our worker come late? Do our workers check Facebook and YouTube? Of course! You just don't have to pay for it.

CloudFactory's unique style of on-demand, quality workers can get all kinds of repetitive business needs solved. Check out CloudFactory.com and let us know if you'd like us to tailor a quote for you.
