Time and Stress Management
for Corporations

Did You Know?

  • PricewaterCoopersHouse found that the average employee spends 150 hours per year (about 3 hours per week) looking for misplaced, misfiled, or lost information.
  • The Wall Street Journal reported that the average U.S. executive wastes 6 weeks per year (about 1 hour per day) searching for missing information in disorganized desks and files.

What Does This Cost Your Department, Company, Or Business?

For an employee who makes $25 per hour, those 150 hours translate to $3,750 per year.

If you have just 5 employees, that’s $18,750 per year.

And then there are the costs that are more difficult to measure. Because if they aren’t coming in every day and asking themselves “What is the most important thing I can accomplish for the company today?” they’re also wasting time on trivial stuff – and it’s probably more time than you think.

But it’s not their fault.

Time management, prioritization and organization is a challenge for most people – it’s not a gift we’re born with.

But it’s something that can be learned – and the benefits are as great for them as they are for you.

The solution is Time and Stress Management training, and these are some of the benefits that can unfold:

  • People focus on results, rather than just on getting things done
  • Stress and anxiety decrease because people feel more in control of their work
  • More projects are brought to completion because people learn to manage, eliminate, or work around interruptions
  • Service and communication improve because people find information quicker, waste less time, and improve their follow-up skills
  • People exude a more competent, confident, and professional image because they feel more productive and their workspaces are organized

An American Management Association study reported that of the companies who increased their training budgets, 80% had a jump in profits and 70% increased their productivity.

When the people that work with you or for you are truly productive, when they learn to use their time on what creates results, they win, and so do you.

According to Watson-Wyatt Research, companies with engaged employees outperform others by 47% to 202%.

The C.O.N.T.R.O.L. Efficiency and Productivity Program covers the most common areas of deficiency:

Chaos and clutter (Office and Workplace Environment)
Creating an office and workplace environment that is functional, efficient and organized and supports productivity and creativity.

Outgoing/incoming items (Efficient Workflow Systems)
Managing and prioritizing work, time and projects so that the important stuff gets done and the less important doesn’t fall through the cracks

Negative thinking and reactionary behaviors (Behaviors, Patterns & Thinking)
Managing common issues like perfectionism and procrastination. Read my special tips on dealing with employees who procrastinate.

Time between work, life, and play (Balance and Self)
Finding a healthy equilibrium between work and play – healthy and well-balanced employees feel better and are also more productive on the job

Relationships and communication (Communicating Effectively and Efficiently)
Managing, processing and handling e-mail and other forms of communication professionally and effectively so that they put the Company’s best foot forward and they can get on to more important work.

Organization and Documents(O)
Techniques to keep information accessible and organized so it can be found quickly

Lack of goals, unclear strategies, poor planning (Goals, Strategy, and Planning)
Identifying and learning to focus on what brings the most results for their time

A study done by McGhee Productivity Solutions reveals that when staff is educated on email best practices can cause an 81% drop in total amount of email kept in the Inbox and a 26% reduction in daily email volume received
