JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – May 19, 2020 – PRLog — Since Mid-March, COVID-19 has created an ever-changing and seemingly never-ending barrage of challenges. In addition to our health scares and financial concerns, comes a new normal for those working remote for the foreseeable future.
According to Gartner Research, nearly 74% of CFO’s and Finance leaders intend to move at least 5% of their workforce to permanently remote positions post-COVID 19. Although many enjoy the concept of working from home, the reality can be quite different. Managing virtual meetings, children at home from school, separation from a normal work day and an inability to feel like you can get it all done, is creating mounting stress and anxiety.
In a 2019 survey by Digital Ocean, 82% of remote-working professionals reported feeling burnt out. 52% of those remote employees said they end up working longer hours and 37% said it increased their stress and frustration. How can remote workers manage their time so that they are efficient and productive, without experiencing frustration and stress?
Azola Creative, a company that has extensive experience helping businesses transform their sales & marketing strategies to a digital commerce environment, has created a program to help companies and their teams continue to navigate through the digital work environment more efficiently. The program focuses on providing training for improving daily prioritization and time-management strategies for traditional in-office and virtual employees. “Employees with poor prioritization and time-management skills are expensive,” says Greg Davis, founder of Azola Creative. “Project management software will only track your time, but it doesn’t help you create more efficient use of that time. We want to help people become more efficient in their day to improve the new work/life balance.”
Mr. Davis believes success in a virtual world starts with creating and managing your daily to-do list. “There’s no shortage of interruptions, or new ideas that can get you sidetracked if you let them,” says Mr. Davis “Priority one is to keep a running list of everything you need to do each day. Many people show 3 or 4 things on their list but then do another 3 things that weren’t there. That’s a recipe for failure because it means you’re not managing your time, you’re reacting to circumstances.” The Amplify Your Efficiency Program will help employees improve their decision-making around what’s important and what can wait, learn to set achievable deadlines, and better communicate their progress and needs for completing tasks and projects.
