How Employee Health Impacts Productivity [Infographic]
The Pomodoro technique popularized by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s used a simple timer shaped like a tomato (or pomodoro in Italian). The timer would ring periodically as a reminder to take a break, usually after 25 minutes of focused activity. To manage energy levels throughout the workday, modern time-management tools such as Toggl allow employees to set automatic Pomodoro reminders that pop-up at regular intervals on their phone or desktop. But employee health concerns more than just the employee.
