The administration is the core of your business and as such needs to operate at the highest efficiency, because when that happens the entire business is more efficient. To do this we address some of the most common pitfalls your administration can fall into in the hopes of avoiding them all together and changing behavior to better suit your business needs.
One of the most easily correctible behaviours we find is doddling. Lollygagging on the job is common enough but can have far reaching consequences the more frequently it occurs, spending too much time chatting with co-workers a frequent contributor to this. When given a task sometimes an employee will take more time than necessary.
Keep a watchful eye but what we find most helpful is giving a clear frame of time for the task to be completed, which forces time management skills. Organization in the workplace is paramount which directly ties in with time management. A workplace without clear organization can cause turmoil and is not conducive to a healthy work environment. This includes, clearly, a proper file system. Without a proper file system things get lost, and then no work is done.

Another skill that is ideal to the administration is computer literacy, but this is another problem area which can clog up work time and lower the quality of work. While this day in age requires a certain amount of computer literacy the specific programs your business uses also needs to be properly understood and giving proper instructions to employees is the fastest and easiest way to accomplish this.
Inappropriate attire for the workplace also slows down productivity. Having professional clothing suitable for the task at hand is all in relation to preparedness and an administration must be prepared.
They must also pay attention to detail. The details are often the most important part and when those get lost it has much the same impact of a faulty filing system. Without the proper information valuable worktime is lost hunting that information down.
Finally giving your administration the tools necessary to function in the work environment is a prerequisite. Information, up to date equipment, clean facilities, all these things contribute to the functionality of the administration and as such to the overall success of your business. Putting the best foot forward in productivity begins with your administration and the efficiency it is capable of. Avoid these problems and you’ll have a much faster and cleaner way to run your business.
