Basic Prioritization Skills Within the Work Environment are Lacking These Days
Shan Cade
Computer and IT technology appear to have affected the "basic office skills" of workers these days.
I have been taken by surprise often lately at how little "managers" and staff know about the benefits of having good basic admin skills.
It appears that companies have spoofed their staff members so much by issuing such in depth SOPs, etc, that they no longer need to think and this results in lack of skills like "prioritising and organising" ones daily job!
Workers are lost, they do not use the reminder systems available on their computers, they do not use the task schedule facilities available and they cannot even prioritise emails for follow-up.
The odd ones that do prioritise emails for instance, then forget to do exactly that - follow-up or they have given every email the same follow-up category like "tomorrow" and of course get swamped each day with all these emails that don't need looking at each day.
If workers cannot start the day by looking at the work that needs to be done, placing it in some kind of order, do the basics like email management as they go along and successfully manage tasks - what kind of a work environment is it going to be in the next decade?
