Key management

  • Managing your Keys with Wall Mounted Key Cabinets

    Everyone knows that our keys help keep our assets and valuables safe. To keep those keys safe, we rely on the likes of wall mounted secure key cabinets, and appoint people responsible for them to ensure that they are always accounted for and available when you need them.  Whether it's for a home or a facility that requires a certain level of security, these wall-mounted key cabinets can be placed anywhere, whether it's at a security post, an administration office, or any place that you see fit.

     

    There should be a balance between security and convenience, from the building/office/assets being reinforced with proper security to the convenience placed on the person responsible for the keys to these various assets, regardless of whether it is physical or informational. You will need a simple yet effective key control and management system to ensure that the likes of cross-keying and the use of many selective keys are forgone and you do not end up with a complicated system that will dissolve what you are hoping to achieve, i.e., key management and control with security and convenience.

     

    By selecting the right model of wall-mounted key cabinets made available to you, whether it's for a home, small-medium businesses, or a large enterprise, as well as choosing the right choice of security locking mechanisms from key to keyless entry, the benefits will be many. To accompany the right choice of physical security for the keys, you need accessories and a system to complement it further, aiding convenience for the person responsible. This can be done with the accessories that come with the key cabinets, such as alphanumerical index cards/books, signature strips and name tags. But if you wanted to take it a step further, and develop your own system for efficiency and effectiveness, then you can.

     

    Figure out a key system structure. This can either be according to the building, department or job function. Remember to separate the master keys and have them separate from the day-to-day keys. If you are utilising various keys for core areas, such as the physical building, opt to further organise them according to the type of area, such as for electricity, piping, mechanical rooms, or even office, labs, janitorial, etcetera.

     

    The use of symbols in the name tags so that you can easily figure out which it belongs to without having to browse the index card or book to double-check. For example, if you have many departments, than carry that forward too with your name tags specifying which area it belongs to, such as abbreviations such as 'MKT' for marketing, 'DIS' for distribution, and so forth. By adding such a system to your wall-mounted key cabinet, you will find yourself with a beneficial product that aids you with the security of your assets as well as efficiency on your part.

     

  • Why is Employee Engagement so Important?

    Employee engagement is when all members of your team are on board with the company’s goals and values, and are motivated to give their best to contribute towards the success of the company and their own personal goals. We can’t stress enough on how crucial this is for higher business profits and reducing employee turnover. After a bit of research, the Telkee Key Cabinets team have compiled some key tips leaders should keep in mind to increase employee engagement in an organisation

    Brand Awareness

    Have your employees use your products to be completely engaged with the service of product you sell. For instance in the  case of Telkee key cabinets, our team members should try out our range of lockable key cabinets to understand the customer's situation and be able to provide better customer service. If a key cabinet setup manual is missing some information that is required when actually setting it up, this way an employee will pick up on it and the marketing collateral can be changed to include it.

    You’ll find that from using this approach, there will be a lot more than sifting through data to find empirical answers to engagement issues.

    Give and Receive Feedback Regularly

    Instead of waiting for that once a year performance review, we believe that shortening feedback loops is the answer to increasing employee engagement. According to research, 43% of highly engaged employees receive feedback at least once a year. While this is hard to accomplish when you have a large team, you can always keep this model in mind and aim to shorten the time frame as much as possible.

    Clear Communication of Organisation Goals

    How can you expect your employees to be on board with your business goals, if they don’t know what they are! Break the communication silence and maintain transparency at all times, to ensure all team members are working towards the same goal.

    Listen to Your Employees

    Many members of senior management want their employees to hear them, but are not willing to take the time to listen to what these team members have to say. It’s been said before, but maintain an “Open Door” policy where employees are free to discuss any concerns or feedback they have without fear of repercussion. You’ll be surprised at how this will help your company save money and time in some instances, as employees who are actually handling a process themselves will have great ideas on ways to streamline processes.

    Most importantly listen to what they have to say and act on it, there is nothing worse than having a good idea ignored!

  • 4 Management Tips to Boost Employee Productivity

    Ensuring good productivity and efficiency of your team is an important part of being a good manager and keeping your organisation running smoothly. An extremely tough task to accomplish at times, it  may lead you to enforce a lot of rules and restrictions, but this isn’t always the right way as controlling your employees in such a way can affect their morale and negatively impact their productivity. Here are a few quick and easy tips from the Telkee key cabinets to ensure your employees are happy,  which in turn will improve productivity and efficiency quickly.

    • Make your employees feel valued - This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be amazed at the number of managers who don’t pay enough attention to doing this. Ask for your employees input when fine tuning work processes or for strategic planning, but make sure to act on it. There’s nothing worse than asking for their opinion and then not acting on it.

    • Recognise hard work and don’t hold back praise - Research has shown that praise and recognition is often a more powerful motivator than money. Don’t be emotionally stingy and make sure to praise your employees and always provide employees with the opportunity to own projects and credit them when a job is well done.

    • Support your employees - Standing by your employees is not something they will forget in a hurry. It builds employee goodwill and loyalty, while improving your relationship with your employees.  Support can take a number of different forms from providing emotional support when employees are being unfairly criticised, flex support to help them manage their work-life balance better or even helping them get more organised by providing updated office storage solutions like lockable cabinets to keep things organised and easy to find.

    • Provide adequate and regular training - Instead of enforcing leadership training continuously for management, it’s important to also focus on regular training for employees as well to help them improve their skills and stay abreast of new technology.
  • Effective Security with Filing Cabinet Key Storage

  • Pokemon Go Becoming an Office Trend? How to Keep Your Employees Focused at Work

    Pokemon Go has gone international with just about everyone from school kids to office workers and grandmothers addicted to this augmented reality game. While reports have shown that healthwise it’s doing a lot of good by getting you up and moving, it’s not ideal when your office become a pokestop  leaving everyone searching for pokemons instead of focusing on the task at hand. The Telkee key cabinets team is  here to help with some great suggestions to help stop your employees from staring at their phones and slipping away from their desks.

    How is Pokemon Go affecting Workplaces?

    Don’t Ban Pokemon Go, Instead Setup a Policy

    While this may seem like the first step to take, it will just lead to employees coming up with ways to play the game behind your back. Passive aggressive signs like the one below won’t work either as they’ll just be ignored. Instead devise a policy that lays out proper guidelines for device management. By doing this you have a solid framework to address unreasonable employee device usage.

    You can also include a section on the use of cameras at your workplace. Adding this to a policy will allow you to deem that the Pokemon Go AR mode is counted as using a phone camera and should be disabled when the game is played within office premises.

    Analyse Employee Performance

    Look beyond the amount of screentime used by an employee, instead analyse their performance. If you notice a huge drop in performance after the viral game hit the office - it’s definitely worth talking to the employee and highlighting the use of the game a possible problem.

    If an employee is playing the game without letting it affect their performance you should just leave it instead of trying to micromanage their time. Most high-performers can be trusted to manage their time efficiently, so if they need to a couple of minutes to swipe through social media or a couple of Pokeballs, trust them to do that while getting their job tasks done too.

    Set Deadlines Clearly

    Research has shown that employees tend to waste time browsing social media and playing games when they don’t have enough to do. This typically happens when you don’t also have any set work deadlines and are just meandering through tasks. To avoid this happening, it’s important to set clear tasks and priorities for your team either on a daily or weekly basis.

    While employees will most likely play the game during their breaks, you will be restricting the game to their downtime since they have to check off their day's work against their prioritised tasks.
