Minimise unnecessary delegation and distractions to help employees to make the best use of their time.
By resourcing and commissioning work carefully, businesses can help employees to focus on more valuable work.
Work delegation needs to be exact and well-thought through. It’s important for senior staff to consider what skills are needed to complete the task efficiently and effectively, as well as how urgent it is, what the workload of the team is like and expectations of the work that you’re expecting to receive back.
Managers can also encourage teams to rework established team processes where there are signs of inefficiencies, deadline rushes or overlaps in responsibilities. This allows the team to think collaboratively about how to become productive as a collective group as well as independently.
