Working Days 2023 - Your Time Matters
What is the use of the number of working days 2023?

The number of working days in a year is useful information for several purposes. The goals can be related to the planning of activities within the company. Or they can be related to financial aspects. It could be about income and costs: estimates or exact calculations, when they depend on the number of days worked.

On the one hand, in the context of planning activities and projects, the number of working days in the year, respectively each month, are essential for projects with a longer duration and requiring more resources.

If we are going to bring in new resources, we ask ourselves the question of how long it takes for them to fully integrate into the team. A new hire in a professional services firm becomes productive after about 60 working days. Based on the total number of working days, we find that this period can reach at least a quarter of the year. It is a long period in the economy of a company.

On the other hand, when you invoice the work to clients with daily rate, the number of working days in the year is important for estimating revenue.

Also, you can calculate the cost of a working day.

If you have other expenses depending on the number of days worked, the number of working days in the year or month is useful for calculating these costs:

– with external resources, subcontractors who have rates per working day

– with the meal vouchers offered to employees with an individual work contract for each working day
