Creating The Ultimate Smart Workplace For Saving
Did you know that on average people work over a day of overtime per week for free? They don’t do it because they love work above everything else in their life. They do it because everyone in a business environment suffers from time shortage. Between meetings, interruptions – the usual “Can I borrow your brain for a minute” that turns into a couple of hours – and unexpected challenges, time has become a precious rarity at the office. That is exactly why it is important to find ways to save it, along with saving cost and effort. At the core of a successful business, there’s a smart workplace that knows how to maximize its strengths to reduce its challenges. Working smartly isn’t always synonymous with using the latest app on your smartphone. It truth, it means finding clever solutions to reduce common issues and be able to focus your time on what matters in the office.
Save Time And Reduce Stress
Work-related stress is becoming by far one of the most common causes of stress-related illnesses and disorders. It is no wonder why. Interruptions can cost an employee up to 60% of their productivity on any given day. Over 70% of meetings are perceived as useless and costly by managers and executives. And more and more individuals are trying to complete projects within impossible deadlines – any deadline that is submitted to constant interruptions and meetings is doomed to be impossible to meet – by working overtime. As a result, stress occurs, and the natural productivity drops. Using automated solutions will not resolve all stress issues, but it will free up sufficient time to focus on ongoing projects. Additionally, it’s important as a team manager to keep an eye on individual workload with regard to meetings and unplanned interruptions.
Save Money And Commuting Cons
It’s not a random decision from modern businesses to work with remote employees. It is the result of comparing the cost of a new, local employee to the one of remote staff. From an employer’s perspective, the benefits of remote work are reflected in low office and administration costs. From an employee’s perspective, it’s saving commuting costs. However, remote work isn’t always an option. For local employees, using a commute sharing service such as Ridester, is another way to keep their cost low and to stick to a healthy work/life balance. Indeed, you are more likely to leave the office on time if you’re driving with someone.
Save Energy And Focus On The Message
Finally, at the time of digital communication, it’s important to get used to how the largest workforce population, the Millennials, communicates. Millennials are not as keen on phone calls as any other generation. Instead, they respond better to emails – assuming you keep it short and sweet – and text messages. As a result, it’s fair to assume that Millennials focus primarily on the messages. They like to keep it casual and straightforward. While they don’t produce formal messages, they prefer to invest their time in finding solutions.
