Especially, phones should be kept away as they are the major causes of distraction. It is evident that any pop-up on mobile compels humans to check their phones and withdraws their attention from their work. Once the attention is diverted, it takes time to gain that devotion and seriousness again.
So, always keep your phones silent. Attend calls whenever necessary. The best tip is to tell your dear ones who frequently call you up that call only when there is an extreme necessity, till you are in the office.
Eliminate unnecessary meetings
Arrange meetings whenever there is a necessity or twice in a month to have a discussion where you have improved and where you have to make efforts.
You can also arrange separate one on one meetings for those employees whose productivity is going down. Ask them the reasons behind their poor performance or if there is any issue they are facing while working. Help and counsel them, that’s the healthy way of dealing with your employees to boost their productivity level.
Arranging meetings in such a way that doesn’t eat anybody’s time rather proves to be beneficial.
Jot down a to-do list for every new upcoming day
A to-do list maintains an organized working culture. A prepared list acts as a direction for employees. They don’t need to take a pause after the completion of the task. They can go with the flow as they have a list that keeps directing them to their further tasks.
A to-do list is always of major use. Infuse this trick into your working schedule for maximum higher productivity.
Delegate to the right person
To delegate work to the right people helps a lot in maximizing productivity. While delegating tasks, make sure whom you are assigning tasks must be capable of doing the work rightly. He/She must own the required skills and potential. Otherwise, your work will get doubled if the task allotted to the person is not capable of doing it.
Find the right fit person for the assigned tasks. Remember you have to reduce your burden not to add more work to your work. So, be rational while delegating work to your subordinates.
Decide a closing time for your tasks
A deadline is a must to maintain proper time management. A deadline reminds employees that they have to look after other tasks as well. They can’t be stuck at one task only.
A reasonable prescribed time maintains quantity and quality both at the same time. Thus, maintain business productivity.
If you think multitasking speedily finishes up your business operations then you are wrong, rather it increases your workload.
There are major chances of occurrence of errors when you manage several tasks togetherly. It leads to various mental disorders as well which include anxiety, sleeping issues, motivation issues, etc.
It is observed people engaged with one task yield higher productivity and maintain quality work. While people performing multiple tasks just finish up tasks without holding any quality.
Assign work to employees as per their strengths, skills
Allot tasks to employees as per their strength, skills, or what they are good at. Your business productivity highly depends upon how and to whom you have assigned tasks.
It’s important to understand whom you have assigned the work truly holds the skills and strength to complete it or not.
Additionally, if you know a person is more excited to work on a specific task, they’ll be more likely to maintain a higher degree of quality. Also, they will complete the task faster in comparison to others who are less or least interested.
Take a break
While working, a break is a must to boost or refresh the employees. Never encourage a working environment with no breaks. A continuous working atmosphere drastically affects business productivity.
Remember you can’t play with the human cycle. The human body does not allow continuous work, every human needs an adequate relaxing time, proper sleep along with work.
It would be inhuman if you don’t provide breaks to make employees feel relaxed for a few minutes.
