As the year ends, many of us are thinking about our New Year’s resolution for 2023. The start of a new year is always an opportunity to reflect on the past and set goals for the future. For companies, this means taking a close look at what’s working and what isn’t, and making changes where necessary.
One area that always warrants attention is workplace productivity. There are always ways to make meetings more productive, employees more engaged, and time management more effective. Here are a few resolutions for companies to consider for 2023:
Make more productive use of meetings.
This is a resolution that can be beneficial for both employees and employers. Too often, meetings are called without a clear purpose or agenda, which can lead to them being a waste of time. Creating a purpose for the meeting and for what it is about helps companies ensure that meetings are actually productive. Set a clear agenda and make sure to stick to it. As well as an agenda, set up a start and end time. This will ensure finishing everything within a timeframe. Only invite those who are essential to the meeting. Too many cooks spoil the broth, and the same can be said about any team meeting.
Increase employee engagement.
Having engaged employees will likely lead to increased productivity and staying with a company for the long haul. There are many ways to increase employee engagement, but a few key strategies include providing opportunities for development, offering meaningful work, and creating a positive work environment. Most importantly, make sure they are appreciated for the hard work they do.
Improve time management as a New Year’s Resolution for 2023.
One of the more important New Year’s resolutions for 2023 is time management. Time management is always a valuable skill, but it can be especially important in the workplace. Keeping a mindful use of time allows companies to ensure employees are working on the most important tasks. Sometimes it is just as important to say no to something as it is to accept it. When too much work piles on then it won’t get done in time for the deadline.
