Time Is Money – Improve Work Rate Efficiency

| May 17, 2013 | 0 Comments


You’ve heard it more times than you count: time is money. The more time that gets spent on tasks that aren’t related to the job the less productive the entire workplace is and ultimately billings will be lower. Whether you’re a company owner trying to increase your business’ bottom line or you’re an employee trying to make sure you get all of your assigned tasks done for the day and maybe impress a few overheads in the process, here are a few tips you can use to make the workplace more efficient:

Employees: Work without internet. This may not be possible for everyone, but for those of you who can afford to turn the internet off while working, you can save a lot of time. Instead of spending half your day checking social media sites and email, you’ll be able to focus on the task at hand.

Owners: Have lunch and snacks delivered. A lot of time can be saved if lunch and snacks all get delivered on time. No one has to go out of the office and fight traffic to get their food and since the employees are eating together, they can spend their lunch break talking about what happened last weekend instead of doing it during work hours. Services like fruitfuloffice.co.uk/ can also provide fresh snacks that will keep everyone’s energy levels high throughout the entire day.

Employees: Set specific times for unnecessary tasks. If you have to make personal calls or send out emails, determine the best time for those activities (usually in the early morning or the end of the work day) and stick to a strict schedule. Let everyone you know that unless it’s during those hours not to try calling as you won’t answer. This will give you time to focus on your job instead of worrying about other distractions.

Everyone: Assess where you’re strong and weak respectively. This should be a requirement at the workplace. No matter if you’re a new employee, if you’ve been with the company for 10 years, or you are the owner of the company it’s important that you constantly evaluate what your strengths and weakness are within the overall structure of the larger team unit.

Do you have a hard time delegating tasks? Work on that. Do you spend too time on small things trying to make minute details perfect? Change that. Do you have problems communicating with your co-workers? Open up dialogue channels. All of these issues can be changed if you truly understand what fundamental concepts need to be addressed.
