Group of Multiethnic Diverse People with Different Jobs

The role of workplace in contributing to national development cannot be undermined for any reason. This is so because workplace efficiency gives robust boost to the economy of a nation. If it is so that workplace productivity is an essential factor to consider when yearning for national development, then it is worthy to build a workforce that would foster efficiency in the productivity of work done.

Building an effective and sustainable workforce must be a deliberate effort carried out by employee managers of an organization. Be it in house or outsourced, efforts geared towards improving the workforce of an organization should not be such carried out haphazardly.

To better achieve this, it essential to develop and have in place a workforce plan that is followed to achieve set goals. One of the ways to achieve this is by setting up a strategic plan. Since it begins with having a strategic plan, this will be best achieved by knowing the business annual goal and plan as well as what it is required from resources to achieve the set goals.

The next step is to analyse your current workplace profile. This is by looking at the present staff and their individual strength, and then compare alongside with the organizational goal to know where there are strength in the workforce and where you have weaknesses. Developing an action plan that will take into consideration all necessary findings as it relates to the business plan and the workplace profile is the next step towards having an efficient workforce.

After having designed an workable action plan, the next will be to implement the action plan by ensuring there all that needs to be done to achieve the strategic planning are being done appropriately. The last step of building a workforce that will be able to bring value to national development is to monitor,  evaluate the results gotten from all the efforts carried out and then revise the plan where necessary.

Building a workforce towards workplace productivity that will have a positive effect on national development has to be deliberate and well planned. Develop your plan today and make sure it resonates with your organizational goals and workplace profile.

11 May Saving your eyes from smartphone strain

maxresdefault

Your smartphone is a welcome sight. Literally, If you are one of those people who glance at their smartphone 150 times a day, chances are your eyes are paying the price for your screen addiction. Staring at your smartphone – or tablet, e-reader or laptop for too long can lead to tired, itchy, dry eyes, and even blurred vision and headaches. Think zombie eyes and you’re there.

Luckily, you can minimise inevitable digital eyestrain by blending a few simple, healthy habits into your smartphone-gazing routine.

Here are seven easy ways to give your eyes a break during your all those smartphone marathon sessions.

Blink, blink and blink again. Blinking often (and for more than a second) keeps your eyes moist and reduces dryness and irritation. We tend to blink about a third less than we normally would when we stare lovingly at our precious smartphone screens, which starves our poor peepers of protective tears. Keep your eyes wet by blinking about 10 times every 20 minutes or so and you should be good to go. Bonus: Blinking often helps refocus your eyes, too.

Minimise glare. Unless you have a smartphone equipped with anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass or use a matte screen protector film, you’re probably coping with a fair amount of annoying reflective glare. The fix is easy and inexpensive: Buy an anti-reflective coating and (carefully) slap it on your smartphone screen. You can find them on Amazon.com and in most mobile service provider stores. Bonus: Anti-glare screen protectors also fend off fingerprints.

Take breaks. It sounds scary, right? Nevertheless, your eyes will thank you. By now, you have probably heard of the 20-20-20 rule. The concept is to take a break from looking at your screen every 20 minutes for 20 seconds while looking at something 20 feet away. Doing so relaxes your eye muscles (and gives you ample time to contemplate which fun, new iPhone or Android app you will play with next).

Adjust your brightness. Having your screen too bright or too dark stresses your eyes out and can cause problems maintaining focus. To eliminate either issue in about a matter of seconds, simply go into your smartphone settings and adjust your screen brightness so that it will be about the same as the light level in your physical environment. Wait – that is unless you’re in the pitch black dark squinting at your smartphone in bed, which, by the way, can lead to insomnia and less sex).

Tweak your text size and contrast. Adjusting your smartphone text contrast and size also provides a little much-needed relief. It makes it easier to read web content, email messages, calendar appointments and everything else on your phone.

Hold your smartphone farther away. It’s okay. You don’t have to put it all the way down. We promise. Most people tend to hold their smartphones only about eight inches from their faces. It’s not good. Try holding yours at least 16 to 18 inches away from your eyes to give your eyes a break. It might feel funny at first but shouldn’t take long to get used to.

11 May My role in National Development

Productivity is one of the drivers of sustainable development, and it is the prime of employee’s role in national development. An employer might also want to ask, what is my role in national development? Since productivity for employees borders on continuous learning, opening the mind to innovation and being ready to tap into the wealth of opportunities offered in this digital age.  

For an employer, the role to play in national development is to support and help employees attain their productivity goal. The best employers of all time has not always been credited to organizations that pay the most but by organizations that are compassionate about the wellbeing of the employees after having realised that the growth and the development of the employees brings great addition to the quality of the organization and the overall productivity result.

Regardless of being small, medium or large organizations, employers of labour must take note of government policies and work closely with the government to see to the compliance of business to governmental rules as well as promoting good work ethics including transparency, accountability, responsiveness and so on.

Since productivity is the nation-state development focus of the workforce, employers are to measure the extent of productivity of workers through talent management, improvement of workplace process with the right technological tools, and of course boost performance with compensation and benefits.
