There is something to be said about finding some ‘headspace’ in the workplace. There are times when we need to take a breather to increase our productivity and to get more creative with our work. Could technology help to divide our workload and help us gain the perfect work-life balance?
According to a recent survey of small medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) leaders by Advanced, 35 per cent of people are using digital tech to automate processes and free up their time. But which technologies can help us to do this effectively?
Perhaps cloud services can help you to focus on your organisation’s core activities, minimise costs and reduce operation risk. Providing a real-time view of key operations, may offer you greater control and give access to data that can help you run every part of your enterprise more smoothly. As well as these, mobile systems will underpin any efficient, agile and collaborative organisation.
SMEs should look to empower their employees to use mobile tech to work on the move, with real-time information, streamlining tasks and minimising the potential for departments to work in isolation.
Then there is the argument that robotic automation tools could take over our repetitive tasks, which will allow humans to invest more valuable time into other work and to explore new projects to help drive the business forward and into new ventures.
In the tech dependent world which we live in, businesses can benefit from these innovations to increase efficiency processes which will help to eliminate workload stress for employees, helping them to capture the perfect work-life balance.
But it is also important that employees understand the value of using digital tools to maximise their productivity, otherwise the system will be flawed and not beneficial to the company.
