A problem that is all too prevalent is the employee against employer mindset that exists in most companies. A core example is that employers want employees to produce the most work and/or most amount of time for the least amount of money while employees want the least amount of work and time for the most amount of money. How do we bridge that large gap? This is a question that many business owners and employees ask alike.
For the employer and employee alike, it is essential to establish some excellent time management strategies. Of course, this will not be the case all of the time because productivity in the workplace has so many factors involved that they could not all be discussed in this post. For example, a more efficient boss will most likely know how to run a company efficiently and therefore foster efficiency in their employees. This boss knows how to communicate well with the employees and knows how to put the right employees in the right positions. Most likely, the employees are also encouraged to be as efficient as possible. Giving incentives for maximizing productivity will work the best in this case.
There are however many roadblocks to efficiency in the workplace. For example many bosses feel the need to control and intimidate employees while employees feel entitled, even in cases where they are not. Employees often believe they are doing their best they can and that they are right. One good way to go about this is to make an investment in each other and talk things out and figure out a way to work best with each other. Unfortunately, this practice is quite difficult because employers and employees are too busy. This is where putting good time management practices into place is essential. Of course this will be different for each employer and employee as well as work places. This is something that is learned with time as I did in my different jobs. I found that each job was different and that a certain strategy that may work for one didn’t work for another. Whether you are want to have your own business or work for someone else, these strategies will have value.
