Learn to Manage Time Well with Expert Tips from Business Registration Hong Kong

October 4, 2013

Running a business is hard, especially when you factor in balancing work, managing employees, family time, and personal time. Mastering time management can make juggling multiple commitments a breeze and lucky for you, Business Registration Hong Kong has tips from experts to help you learn how to do just that.

   

Plan and Organize

Begin by planning out everything you’ll be doing on the day, including regular tasks like driving and lunch. Knowing exactly when you have free time allows you to plan out other commitments better and keeps you from over-scheduling yourself. Keep yourself organized by taking care of small tasks immediately. Do you have something to file? Do it right away. Always plan on doing the most difficult tasks first thing in the morning- that is when you are most productive.

Every Minute Counts

Take advantage of every free moment to keep yourself productive. If you know you have a long wait in line ahead of you, bring your fully charged tablet or laptop and spend that time responding to email. Utilize apps for your Smartphone to keep you on track with reminders, synchronized calendars, and more. Make sure not to waste any downtime with distractions; train your employees and customers to respect your time. They should know when you are available to chat and when to let you buckle down and work.

Delegate

When you feel like you have too much on your plate, that is the perfect time to show your employees some trust by giving them more responsibilities. Research, memo writing, and errands are all things that can easily be delegated to an employee. You can also ask for extra help with scheduling to allow you to focus on work. Hire an assistant to plan out your meetings, send you reminders, and keep you on track. Make sure your assistant always gets an agenda for meetings you’re invited to so you know you won’t be wasting your time at a meeting that isn’t relevant to you.

How Happy are Your Employees? Keep Costs Low and Invest in Team Building

October 4, 2013

As a business owner, it would come as no surprise that you love your business. But do your employees feel as passionate as you do? A recent study shows that 80% of employees are dissatisfied with their jobs in some way. Business Registration Hong Kong has taken the key findings of the study for you to learn from and build your business with.

Replacing employees is hassle– and it’s expensive! Finding a replacement can cost you up to one-fifth of the salary, in addition to productivity loss, the cost of training the new employee, and the slow productivity of the new employee. Employees in the food services and accommodation industry are the most unhappy with their work and have the highest overturn rate; about 37 percent quit annually.


So what can you do to keep your employees happy? Research shows that team-building is the best way to keep your employees invested in your business. Team-building exercises have been proven to increase trust among coworkers and managers, reduce conflict in the workplace, and increase collaboration in teams.

These may sound good, but how do they really benefit your company? According to the study, 48% of employees who resigned in the US listed lack of trust as their primary reason for leaving. Verbal fights are recorded as being “common” for 42% of survey respondents, and only 27% of employees who responded felt they were involved in decisions made by their employers. By using team-building exercises, you can keep your employees engaged, involved, and invested.
