  • 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.

  • Getting Yourself Organised When Using Secure Key Cabinets

    Running an office is not easy, but if you are part of administration responsible for tasks, proper management and organisation goes a long way in ensuring that things do not go wrong, or missing. Secure key cabinets are the perfect solution for your key management requirement, whether you opt for a wall mounted option, or a filing cabinet addition, you need to be on top of things to ensure that they are utilised to the maximum potential and your administration requirements and needs are met.

    The first step in making sure that your keys are stored securely is to acquire or purchase a key cabinet with the right tools. That is with hooks for hanging the keys, a numbering system or slots to add them and preferably some form of expansion capability in case you feel there will be a requirement for it in the future. Making sure that they are secure comes with the locking mechanism, and these can be anything from a key entry to a key-less entry.

    Depending on your requirement and the number of personnel that are responsible for it, you will have to make this decision based on that criteria. Based on the type of office you run, that is, real estate, vehicle yards, government office,apartment complex, and so forth, the need for secure key cabinets may differ. However, one thing remains, and that is, you need to figure out an easy way to get to your keys.

    Therefore, start numbering the keys that you have in hand by using stamped, printed, or blank key tags and attaching the relevant key to the corresponding key tag. You can then use either printed or blank perforated sheets to number the hooks in your secure key cabinet up to the number you have used while numbering the key tags. Once that is done, one stage of key management process is complete.

    The next step would be to ensure that when you need to find a key quickly, you have all the information readily available and this is done via the use of index cards, books, or logs. These can be numbered alphabetically or numerically depending on your preference and requirement. This will help you find your keys easier, and save time. Furthermore, you could also put to use signature strips so that the responsible person can quickly find out why a key is missing from the secure key cabinet, and to know the person accountable for dispatching the key.

    You can organise your key cabinet better with these ways. Make sure to also purchase the right accessories or ensure that the accessories come in the package when you purchase a lockable key cabinet.

  • 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.
