Improve workforce productivity with Time Management software from Sage

Sage HR solutions help you to apply the time management techniques for your employees to meet all their deadlines. 

Master time management techniques for better results

What is time management? Simply put, time management is how you prioritize tasks and juggle multiple demands. It’s measured by how effectively you plan your day to get the most done. Good time management lets you work smarter, so you get more done faster. Failing to properly manage your time can drastically impact your team, company, and overall performance.

How to manage time?

It can often feel as though a new email lands in our inbox every 10 seconds, the phone never stops ringing, and everyone in the office is demanding your attention. Employees must know how to manage time and minimize distractions. We suggest trying the following helpful time management techniques:

Assess how you currently spend time

In order to properly plan your day, it’s important you know what requires your time.

Set goals

Specific objectives help guide you through your day, week, or even month. These objectives should include set deadlines to help with motivation.

Use a to-do list

A list helps you plan your day, see what you need to do, and keep track of tasks. So much so, Sir Richard Branson credits his success to the to-do lists.

Prioritize

Sort your to-do list into high to low priorities. Knowing what to focus on first and identifying important tasks ensures your efforts aren’t wasted on the wrong things.

Remove distractions

It’s important to remove or at least minimize distractions. Otherwise, your day could become unproductive. Try using set periods to check emails and avoid social media.

Don’t multitask

Multitasking doesn't work. By switching between tasks, you ultimately take longer to complete anything. Instead, focus on one task and group similar tasks together when working through your to-do list.

Delegate

Teamwork is key to efficient time management. Try asking co-workers for help managing tasks that aren’t your top priority but still need to be completed. This will save you time and give them the opportunity for growth.

Take breaks

Overworking is detrimental to your health and business. Make sure to take regular breaks, get fresh air, and step away from your desk. Remember high-quality work does not equate to high-quantity.

Use technology

Business management solutions and time management software can help streamline tasks, so you can focus on high-priority tasks and cross admin off your to-do list.
