How can you keep up with consistent game changes in the workplace?

Technology is making it so that we are more connected than ever but if you’re not too careful, it could be at a price. Innovations in the workplace are making it so you can work remotely, accessing important documents and printing no matter where you are. It can be overwhelming to be so connected but there are some things that you can do to organize yourself, your work, and your life.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is one of the latest ways to do business. Employers and employees alike are given the capability for remote working, document access, and connection to the main office straight from their mobile phones. Most companies are even giving their employees a specific work phone with programs and appropriate apps already in place. We are entering a new age in business practices that have great outcomes but could lead to some negative consequences.

Take control of your work life and stay up to date with the latest technology. I know what you’re thinking, “But you just said there can be consequences?” Moderation is key, as well as focus. Technology is only hindering when we allow it to be. Innovations in the workplace are truly making it easier to maintain the speed needed in the Go!Go!Go! world today. Used correctly, apps, mobile friendly work programs, and BYOD can ease your workload and make you a superstar in your industry. DocuTech offers a few helpful tips to get you there!

Setting Strong Goals

Setting goals at the beginning of the year or quarter is an excellent way to map out what you want to achieve during the year or quarter. The key is not to just make these goals but to achieve them. A study by Bersin & Associates found that companies who regularly revisit their goals have 30% greater impact from goal-setting processes than companies who review them annually. The idea is simple: Set your goals and achieve them! Know what you’re up against, your work patterns, and set realistic goals for yourself. Keep track of your goals and progress through an engaging social platform or program that can entice and encourage you and your employees. Visuals are a great way to actually see results and where you stand.

Owning Organization

Organize yourself! Whether it’s at the beginning of the year, quarter, or once a month, finding time to organize your laptop, desktop, phone, etc. will give you a greater sense of control. Create folders for yourself and your clients and commit to it. Putting documents and emails in a specific, uniform area will keep you on track and save you time and effort searching.

Remote Work-Life Balance

And finally, utilize your technology. Know the programs, what they do, and more importantly, what they can do for you. You can do so much with your mobile phone; use it and save yourself some time and effort. Almost every web platform has a mobile app to match. Download the apps of programs that you use frequently and do as much as you can through them. Your phone can be a godsend, it can receive and send emails, retrieve documents, and generally make your life easier.

Moderation is the key with everything. Technology can make your life and work easier, embrace it, use it, and control it. Follow these simple suggestions and become the superstar you know you can be!
