Have you ever felt disorganised and inefficient at work?
Did you struggle to find the causes and solutions?
Did you then work late to finish the tasks on time?
Here are the top four main causes and their corresponding solutions:
1. Fail to manage important messages
Think of a scenario in which your team and the other team are involved in a project using different communication tools. It could either be easy to miss out on some information or difficult to concentrate on your current tasks with too many notifications and information piling up in your inboxes.
Solution: Establishing boundaries allows your team to know when to respond and where to manage projects and tasks.
2. Too much workload
When dealing with time-sensitive projects and large initiatives falling behind schedule, the unbalanced workloads lead to a high volume of work, stressing employees and making them lose their focus.
Solution: Using proper tools to plan for a busy period reduces the workload on your employees’ plates and brings them back to focus.
3. Seek approvals and feedback
Seeking approvals and feedback from others is one of the types of ‘work about work’, leading to staying up late for work.
Solution: Creating clarity gives employees a picture of each party’s duty and removes the guesswork.
4. Chase teammates to complete works
Constantly chasing teammates’ progress to ensure they can meet the deadline may cause tensions on both ends.
Solution: Training everyone on the same work management platforms aligns everyone’s work and enhances a transparent and communicative environment.
