Productivity Pays Off for the Winner of the ShoreTel Teamwork Social Media Contest
On May 2, we kicked off a social media contest seeking the best tips and ideas to improve personal or team productivity at work. Lots of great suggestions were shared on our ShoreTel social channels, but one resonated with all of our judges thanks to its practical, easy-to-implement advice:
“Don't get caught up in a lengthy to-do list! Break your list down into manageable mini-lists that you can tackle throughout the day/week.”
Congratulations, Shasta Smith, and thank you for your winning entry! Your prize of a $100 Amazon gift card is on the way. In fact, it’s the number one item on our to-do list!
Manage Your Time by Managing Your Tasks
Shasta wasn’t the only contest entrant who focused on task management as a key to workplace efficiency and productivity. Other suggestions included creating a daily to-do list and prioritizing those tasks, blocking times and setting calendar reminders to ensure a focused effort, and creating online folders by project to manage related content and communications. Additionally respondents suggested taking five minutes to prioritize and plan for the next day ahead before heading out of the office each day.
Fortunately, today’s on-the-go workers have tools beyond paper and pencil to help make task management and team collaboration easier. Mobile apps like ShoreTel Teamwork™ empower people and teams to be more productive, no matter their location. Take a look:
