12 Jul Manage your time, boost your productivity

Time-ManagementWhat does it mean to be productive? Simply put, productivity is getting things done. But in actual sense, it goes beyond just getting things done to getting things done in due time. The phrase “in due time” comes to play because scheduling targets, tasks or deliverables must be given clear timelines because productivity is maximized by proper time management.

In economic terms, productivity can be seen as the average measure of the efficiency of production. It can be expressed as the ratio of output to inputs in the production process, i.e. output per unit of input. It is often said that to excel in their dealings achievers manage time effectively. So, consider these few tips to enhance productivity through proper time management:

Identify time wasters and avoid activities that are distractions to your daily activity flow.

Hide or uninstall social media and game apps which divert your focus.

Set daily goals and prioritize tasks with the help of a reminder alert.

Avoid multitasking. In the true sense of it nobody can multitask, but by multi-switching you can attend to multiple deliverables with proper timelines.

Brainstorming during leisure. It is said that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy but that is not when you have piles of work left undone. Hence, smaller tasks left undone can be attended to during leisure.

Use time management solutions. Identify good time management consultants for help on how to improve time management in your organization.

28 Jun SAFETY TIPS FOR PEDESTRIAN CROSSING

the-highway

  • Always use pedestrian crossings
  • Never assume that an approaching vehicle can see you, or will stop for you – wait until all vehicles have stopped before you cross
  • At intersections, check for turning vehicles before you leave the kerb, and while you are crossing the road
  • Avoid crossing between parked cars or at the front or back of buses
  • Wear bright, light coloured clothing at night or in reduced visibility conditions
  • Avoid using a mobile phone or portable media player (so you can hear vehicles and concentrate on crossing the road)
  • At traffic lights, make sure that vehicles stop before you start to cross, and don’t enter the road if vehicles are moving through the crossing or if the the red don’t walk signal shows. Pedestrian countdown timers show how many seconds you have left to finish crossing before oncoming vehicles will be given a green light. If you haven’t started to cross, the countdown timers can help you decide if it’s safe to do so.

21 Jun Do Time and Attendance HRM Systems Really Save Money?

TAMS Money

Employees’ attendance at the place of work and time spent doing the work are critical to an organization’s operational efficiency. While it is a known fact that attendance can be affected by lateness, absenteeism, abscondment, laxity and the likes, most organizations are at a loss as to the most effective methods or tools to accurately record, store and process employee attendance.

Organizations that use manual log books often overpay employees due to manual calculations which become even more tedious when calculating total number of hours worked, lateness, absenteeism and so on, at the end of the month when salaries are being prepared.

However, the question often arises if time attendance systems really save cost. When one considers the research findings that up to twenty-five per cent of an organization’s salary bills are, in real terms, unjustifiable due to employees’ lackadaisical attitude towards punctuality.

A time and attendance system provides many benefits to organizations against the backdrop that a maximized and organized means of tracking operational time leads to a high rate of employee return on investment (ROI). This brings about growth as it enables an employer to have full control of and effectively direct employees’ working hours towards achieving organizational goals. Attendance tracking goes beyond having an automated clock-in but total human resource management system such as payroll, appraisal, leave, exemption among others. Therefore, having a time and attendance HRM system is invaluable for organizations of different sizes- small, medium or large scale- to effectively track performance.

  • Eat three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner); it is important to remember that dinner does not have to be the largest meal.
  • The bulk of food consumption should consist of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk products.
  • Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts (with emphasis on beans and nuts).
  • Choose foods that are low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars; look at the labels because the first listed items on the labels comprise the highest concentrations of ingredients.
  • Control portion sizes; eat the smallest portion that can satisfy hunger and then stop eating.
  • Snacks are OK in moderation and should consist of items like fruit, whole grains, or nuts to satisfy hunger and not cause excessive weight gain.
  • Avoid sodas and sugar-enhanced drinks because of the excessive calories in the sodas and sugar drinks; diet drinks may not be a good choice as they make some people hungrier and increase food consumption.
  • Avoid eating a large meal before sleeping to decrease gastroesophageal reflux and weight gain.
  • If a person is angry or depressed, eating will not solve these situations and may make the underlying problems worse.
  • Avoid rewarding children with sugary snacks; such a pattern may become a lifelong habit for people.
  • Avoid heavy meals in the summer months, especially during hot days.
  • A vegetarian lifestyle has been promoted for a healthy lifestyle and weight loss; vegetarians should check with their physicians to be sure they are getting enough vitamins, minerals, and iron in their food.
  • Cooking foods (above 165 F) destroys most harmful bacteria and other pathogens; if you choose to eat uncooked foods like fruits or vegetables, they should be thoroughly washed with running treated (safe to drink) tap water right before eating.
  • Avoid eating raw or undercooked meats of any type.
