Time. There never seems to be enough of it. One minute you’re thinking about avoiding homework, the next you are in a job. It disappears quickly and there’s no getting it back. This is something most small and medium-sized businesses understand, because time simply is money.
How do you save time in the office? You could buy a new kettle to speed-up coffee breaks, however, at Colt we understand that cost-savings can be made outside the kitchen, especially with the technology your business uses.
Consider this: It takes 16 minutes to refocus after reading a new email and return to the work you were doing before your inbox went ding[i]. When you consider that an employee actively deals with over 100 emails per day[ii] then suddenly that’s a lot of time spent refocusing and not being productive.
We realise that each of these black holes can suck time out of the day. To help you identify them we’ve produced this handy eBook that you can read here:
Or download from here. What’s more, we’ve not only illustrated what the time pressures are, we’ve suggested ways you can improve your performance and productivity, perhaps by switching tools or changing habits.
So why not start saving time and money? Take a look at our book and let us know your thoughts below. We’re eager to make the office a more productive place and help you achieve that.
