Being organised at work
increases efficiency and produc-
tivity of employees.
Focus on what is important and
urgent. Do not unnecessarily
waste time in doing things which
are not important at the moment.
Plan your day well. Before you
begin your day, make a list of
activities which you need to
accomplish before you call it a
A TO-DO list helps you know
what all is important and needs
to be done on a high priority. Put
a tick mark against tasks which
have been accomplished.
Tidy up your desk. Throw away
what all you do not need. Impor-
tant documents ought to be kept
in a folder. Keep everything at its
proper place. Label files accord-
ingly. A messy desk does not allow
employees to concentrate in work.
Develop the habit of using a
planner or organiser at work.
Important tasks ought to be writ-
ten in a planner against the date
you wish to accomplish the same.
This way, you do not forget any
important task and also achieve
targets within the desired time
frame. Write down all your com-
mitments neatly in your planner.
A desktop calendar also helps you
plan your day well.
No employee can work at a
stretch for eight to nine hours.

to extract the best out of employ-
ees but it should not lead to
unnecessary pressure at work-
place. Employees need to enjoy

Allocate some time to surf
internet, check updates in social
networking sites, speak to family
and friends or find out what is
new in your respective domains.
Make sure you do not waste
your time gossiping with fellow
workers or spreading unnecessary
rumours. Enjoy your lunch but
make sure you return back to your
desk once the lunch time is over.
Manage your time well. Do not
discuss work while having lunch
with fellow workers and do not
think about anything else while
working. Do not work only when
your boss is around. Work for your
Some people have a tendency
to write important contact num-
bers and other relevant informa-
tion on loose papers. Trust me
you will never find the paper when
you actually need it. Jot down all
important contact numbers in a
note pad. Keep all required infor-
mation handy. Store the telephone
numbers of all important clients
in your phone book.
Do not say a yes to everything.
Do not accept additional respon-
sibilities just to please your supe-
riors. It will land you in trouble
Delegation of work as per spe-
cialisation and expertise is of utmost
importance. Accept work as per your
educational background and interest
levels. Helping your colleagues is
essential but make sure your own work
does not suffer.
Always make it a habit to finish
work on time. Avoid sitting late at
work. Trust me, it disturbs your family
life and also increases stress levels.
Employees need to reach office on
time, finish their work and leave on
