Workplace productivity and ways to hack it

Naseerah Nanabhai

Having a productive workday can put your mind at ease because it probably means you have accomplished all the tasks for the day. The results of such efficiency make productivity objectives a priority amongst all employees.

Studies reveal that the average employee is only productive for 2 hours and 53 minutes daily. That engaged employees are more productive, and 41% of stressed employees state that stress negatively affects productivity. This impacts negatively on the company’s overall performance.

Developing high-performance levels is not difficult, but it takes commitment and perseverance. Here are some essential things to keep in mind when aiming for productive workdays:

1.     Block time: this involves having a designated amount of time to complete specific tasks. It is a great way to stick to a schedule and can help with overall focus.

2.     Order of tasks: it is always advisable to start with the most challenging and time-consuming tasks first. This is because people tend to have more energy and focus at the start of their work day.

3.     Avoid multitasking: while it may seem like a method to get the most done in a set time, it doesn’t always work. This is because constantly switching between tasks can eventually destroy your productivity.

4.     Manage your calendar ahead of time: – knowing what you need to get done before your workday starts is always a plus.

While there are many ways to improve productivity in the workplace, the strategies you select will depend on you and your work ethic. Changes don’t have to be made all at once and can be built up slowly. Nonetheless, the benefits of productive days can help you stay motivated and create efficient work habits.
