For ages, workplace efficacy has been considered as the main theme of any organization. However, it has an ever-changing definition overtime. Regular and repeated patterns have been replaced by meaningful and constructive tasks.
Here are some challenges that we have observed regarding workplace efficacy
Time allocation: Urgent vs. Important
In a professional environment, we have learned to classify jobs into urgent and significant categories. What is urgent is due first, and what is important is the top priority. The golden rule is to prioritize the urgent at the earliest and plan ahead for the important.
If necessary, over-communicate with the team to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding the various deadlines of different projects.
Managing Teams: Smart, Effective Collaboration
Teamwork is an entirely different ballgame in the corporate world. Collaboration has always been difficult, and the introduction of remote working has made it even more complex. That is why smart and efficient collaboration is required for successful projects.
Managing procedures: Get Rid of The Herd Mentality
Herd mentality or going with the flow attitude restricts the provision of innovations which also limits creativity and damages the overall productivity of the organization in long run. However, in certain cases where processes aren't set or non-existent, they should be leveraged and re-evaluated on a regular basis.
Culture Management: Learning and Compassion
While there is a lot of emphasis on doing better for productivity, the importance of being better is often overlooked. Not only the Learning and Development function but also the overall environment is required to motivate employees to grow and contribute better to an organization.
In the end, it's not only clocking the hours but also adding values to those hours that matter.
