Master the art of time management and achieve better results with HR software from Sage

What is time management ? Most simply defined, time management is how you prioritise 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 in less time. Failing to properly manage your time can drastically impact your team, company, and overall performance.

Meet deadlines with efficient time management

Poor time management severely impacts businesses. It can cause employees to struggle to manage workloads, meet deadlines, and feel rushed and stressed. Completing work at the last minute can impact the quality of the services or products delivered by your business.

Without the right management systems, you may even face costly regulatory compliance missteps, among other pitfalls. Thankfully, most of these issues can be prevented with proper training and software support.

Help employees develop time management skills

A new email lands in our inbox every 10 seconds, the phone never stops ringing, and it seems everyone in the office wants your attention. Employees must know how to manage time and minimise distractions. We suggest using the following helpful time management techniques:

icon-clock
Assess how you currently spend time
In order to properly plan your day, it’s important to know what requires the most and least time. This also allows you to see where you may be wasting valuable time.
icon-award
Set goals
Specific objectives help guide you through your day, week, or even month. These objectives should include set deadlines to help with motivation.
icon-checklist-1
Use a to-do list
A list helps you plan your day, see what needs to get done and keep track of tasks. So much so, Sir Richard Branson credits his success to to-do lists.
icon-checkbox
Prioritise
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 being wasted on the wrong thing.
icon-ear
Remove distractions
It’s important to remove or at least minimise distractions. Otherwise, your whole day could be taken up replying to emails, answering phone calls, or chatting to co-workers. Try using set periods to check emails and avoid social media.
icon-shuffle
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.
icon-people-network
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.
icon-happy
Take breaks
Overworking is detrimental to your health and the 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, like Sage 200cloud Standard and Sage 200cloud Professional, can help streamline tasks, so you can focus on high-priority tasks and cross admin off your to-do list.
