How to Improve Your Efficiency in the Workplace

Are you efficient?

Most people can increase their productivity and effectiveness at work. Like them, you might benefit from better organisation and prioritisation. Sometimes, to create a better business, all that’s needed are a few tweaks to your habitual way of working.

Maybe you think you are organised, but it never hurts to streamline how you go about tasks at the office. Lack of order and preparation can make progressing hard. You need clarity, which starts with a tidy desk. Also, be aware of the best ways to spend time at work. Do you know which chores need to be handled first? At the same time, you may try to juggle more work than is necessary. Delegating will give you more time to spend where it’s needed most.

Get organised

Write appointments in a diary and keep a calendar. Also, stock printer ink, paper, and pens, or whatever else you need. Don’t shop more than necessary, and keep track of what needs doing to save time and energy. Know which jobs you need to carry out; make a list.


Once you have listed tasks, make sure you understand the best order in which to complete them. Some chores are important: carrying them out will relieve pressure. Others have little significance, bringing small rewards if any. Performing those of little value first wastes time.

Other time-wasting activities

Do you dilly-dally, carrying out needless actions for amusement? You might not imagine you squander time, but checking your emails and Twitter every hour isn’t useful. Stick to work, and remove distractions, and your productivity will soar.


Depending on your work and position, you might need to delegate. Hand over tasks lower ranking employees can manage. You’ll be free to carry out demanding jobs and increase productivity.

Your efficiency will improve if you make plans, ranking tasks in order of importance. You can also organise your workspace, delegate jobs, and avoid time-wasting activities for better productivity.
