  • Happier Employees Work Harder - True or False?

     

    Happy Employees Are More Productive

    While a lot of business owners say they’re focused on keeping their employees happy, the truth of the matter is that they are more concerned about getting larger profits. What they don’t realise is that recent research has proven that keeping your employees happy results in them working more effectively, creatively and collaboratively resulting in an increase in productivity which in turn leads to bigger profits for the company. While conventional wisdom believes that paying your employees well will keep them happy, there are in fact several other components involved.

    Allow Flexible Working Hours

    More than the flexibility the employee receives which allows them to balance both the demands of their work and personal life, the trust from their employer that they will get what needs to be done within the required time frame is the key reason this works to increase employee satisfaction.

    By allowing employees the freedom of creating their own working hours, you are allowing them to balance work and personal life while minimising stress. This is a sure way to increase happiness and minimise burnout.

    Encourage Employees to Take Breaks

    If Richard Branson has recognised the importance of this,so should we! Encourage employees to take regular breaks at work where they can have some downtime, connect with colleagues and be inspired - most fantastic ideas for work tend to pop up when you aren’t working!

    Research showed that most employees feel guilty to take breaks while at work which results in sitting at their desks for longer, but decreases their productivity and can lead to burnout. Encourage employees to take regular breaks by keeping a lounge area well equipped with free snacks and drinks, gaming consoles or a pool table along with comfy chairs and some light reading material.

    Make Meetings More Effective

    Most employees view meetings as inefficient and a waste of time. While there are a plenty of meetings that occur, a general consensus is that not much of the tasks discussed at a meeting are actually carried out.

    Instead of having meetings just for the sake of it, make your meetings structured and actionable with a clear plan. At the end of the meeting, an email should be sent out to all those that attended with a summary of the items discussed at the meeting, along with the tasks and who is responsible for each one, along with the deadlines.

    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.

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.

    Keeping your business organised at all times is a crucial part of being successful in today’s fast paced world. Depending on your industry, business size and office organisation style, there are plenty of different lockable cabinet storage systems to choose from. With most offices, floor space is a huge problem and most Telkee Key Cabinet customers are always on the lookout for office storage solutions that are not bulky, but lean, durable and easy to use. Here’s a quick look at why adjustable shelf cabinets meet the bill perfectly, compared to regular pull out shelving for offices.

    Telkee Adjustable Shelf Cabinets are Wall Mounted

    Adjustable shelf cabinets and all other Telkee lockable cabinets can be easily wall mounted to save floor space. Wasted space behind the cabinet is eliminated and floor space in front of it is maximised as well. Additionally, wall mounted cabinets can be set at a height that allows you to make use of the space beneath, perhaps by placing filing cabinets, shelving or a desk or table below. This is perfect for housing a small amount of equipment in a crowded mixed-use work space.

    Adjustable Shelf Cabinets are Durable

Adjustable shelf cabinets also use an all steel construction which ensures your lockable cabinet solution will remain in perfect working condition over the years.

    Adjustable Shelf Cabinets are Ideal for General Storage

    Store a variety of different office valuables to keep them organised and secure at all times.

  • Quick Tips for Setting up a Workstation at Home

    Whether you run a business out of your home or you work for an organisation that offers flex hours with working from home as an option, setting up a designated workstation is important! When setting up a home office there are three areas you should take into consideration to ensure it is seamlessly integrated into your home.

    Ensure Proper Circulation

    Your work from home station should be positioned in an area that does not affect the movement of other residents and is away from the hustle and bustle of the house activity. Thebest area to set it up would be in locations that are least used by the other occupants such as under the stairs, right beside the foyer if the house has one, or old cabinets can be redone to form part of the furniture of the homework station.

    Special Consideration

    If the workstation juts out of a preferred wall, it definitely reduces the effectiveness of an area, so aim to keep it contained to a specific area of your house. It must be adequate in size. If the homework station extends beyond a preferred wall or space, it loses its value because it will disrupt the effectiveness of the area. When choosing your furniture as well, make sure the lockable cabinets, storage shelves etc all fit neatly within the area to prevent having to move around a lot, which will improve work productivity.

    Choosing the Right Fixtures

    Your workstation will need to have a table and matching chair, multi-use cabinet for storage, magnetic whiteboard along with a key cabinet if you deal with numerous keys. Make sure you take the size of your office into consideration when making these purchases as leaving things jutting out, will make things messy and affect the flow of the rest of the house too.

  • 4 Tips for Organising your Workspace

    Staying organised can be tough, especially if you’ve got a lot of things that lend themselves well to creating clutter. Hiding things away in desk drawers and boxes may seem like an easy office storage solution, however this does not fix the problem in the long term as chances are you won’t be able to find important resources when you require them. Here are some of the Telkee key cabinet team’s favourite go-to organisation tips to ensure you’ll not only have a clutter free workspace, but also be able to find your important resources in seconds.

    Tip 1 : Trash all outdated paperwork and resources

    This is obvious enough, but designate some time to declutter your workspace monthly. Most of the items you are keeping have no further use. Don’t be a packrat when it comes to papers, trinkets, and more. “When in doubt, throw it out.” Throw out any old documents, keys, files etc that are not required. Don’t rush this step incase you throw out required information accidentally, instead try rooting through drawers one at a time.

    Tip 2 : Categorise all resources clearly

    Categorise everything you’ll be keeping with folders or other related storage solutions. For instance if your business requires a lot of keys, instead of leaving them lying around invest in a good quality lockable key cabinet that comes complete with numbered hooks. Use numbered printed  key tags to file your keys accordingly on each related hook in the key rack and always make sure to place them in their correct place for easy access. With this simple tip you know you’ll be keeping your valuable resources safe and reduce the risk of theft and loss.

    Don’t forget to use obvious names or a numbering system when organising your resources. A folder named “Meeting October” is less obvious than “Meeting Oct.16 Sales” when you need to find a document in a hurry and will be so much easier than having to go through mountains of folders.

    Tip 3: Have a designated clean up time everyday

    Schedule 15 minutes of cleanup time each day. Perhaps, first thing when you come in. Or if you are really disciplined, before heading home. Put it right on your calendar so that you allocate time for it.

    Tip 4: Enlarge your workspace

    If you really have too much important stuff that just won’t fit on your desk, the next solution would be to enlarge your workspace with some adjustable shelf cabinets that are great for some extra storage that is still secure and organised.
