How to Improve Productivity at Work- Part 2 of 2

My last post covered how business leaders are looking to build agility and foster innovation into their organisations by using Project teams. Now I want to look at the second approach that came out from my research: breaking down roles into activities and subsequently optimising tasks.

 

Prioritisation 

According to a report by McKinsey, 30%-60% of a front line managers time is spent on administration and meetings. And recent research by The Workforce Institute in Australia claims that by cutting just one hour of non-essential tasks could save organisations AU$22 billion dollars a year.  There are many ways to help individuals prioritise tasks.

One such technique came from US President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Drawing upon his experience as the Allied Forces Supreme Commander in the Second World War, he noted:

“What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important

He devised a simple 2x2 matrix that separates tasks into four categories, with each category determining how you should approach the task.

How to Hire on-demand Staff

Let's say your receptionist calls in sick, or has some annual leave coming up. The quickest and easiest way to fill the gap immediately, is to hire a pre-vetted Weployee who is available and job-ready from the moment you need, reducing the need for time spent on briefing recruiters, waiting for applications and interviewing potential candidates.

Perhaps you don't even have a receptionist yet but your team is growing and administrative needs are spilling over into the day to day and impacting deliverables. Why not try hiring a Weployee for a few hours a day or a couple of days a week to ease the burden on the rest of the team, or help specialists focus on what they're best at during busy times. 

This video, narrated by our co-founder Tony, walks you right through how to hire a Receptionist, from the creation of your Weployer profile, right through to posting the job....
