Making the Most of Every Work Day

Wasting time costs money! Make the most of your workday with better time-management skills.

If you are a person who never can find the time to get everything done at work each day, KB Staffing would like to offer some tips for improving your productivity. Good time-management skills not only will benefit your company as you get more done, but it will also help to reduce your stress level. 

Prioritize and Energize
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to effective time management. The KB Staffing team utilizes a variety of styles to ensure that we are accomplishing our goals each day. Here are a few of the techniques used by our expert staffing service.

  • Resist multitasking. Studies have shown that the brain simply does not do any task to the best of its ability when trying to perform multiple functions simultaneously. Focus on one thing at a time, working on just one screen. If necessary, set timers to let you know when it’s time to move onto something else.
  • Stay on track. Making a list for the day can be a great help, but don’t get bogged down by making lists. Spend five minutes or less making the day’s list, and be realistic with goals. Choose either paper or digital lists, but don’t confuse yourself by trying to juggle both.
  • Set aside time for emails. To avoid ignoring important emails or getting caught up responding to a slew all at once, we designate certain periods throughout the day for handling our emails. 
  • Don’t forget to move. Our bodies benefit from movement, and sitting for long stretches can be detrimental both to our physical health and to our cognitive abilities. Make sure that you are getting up out of your seat for a few minutes at least a couple of times an hour.

Better Time Management Means Higher Productivity
If you are managing your time wisely and still find that there is too much left undone at the end of each day, it may be time to explore your temporary staffing options. KB Staffing can help you find the staffing solutions that will help your company maximize its potential.
