While hourly employees may clock in and out at precisely 40 hours per week, salaried employees often put in more than 40 hours if needed. These workers have the freedom to prioritize their work, and this freedom comes with privileges and obligations that increase the higher you rise in an organization.

While the privilege gives managers a lot of freedom, the obligations impose a workload that adds up to more than 100 per cent of their time. Use this tool to help employees understand this relationship so they can feel more empowered in their roles.
