7 keys to greater productivity through time management

Increasing productivity is one of the great obsessions of a modern company as only the most efficient and optimised firms are able to survive in an extremely competitive and demanding economic environment. Better time management is one of the actions that have the greatest impact in achieving this objective. It is about debugging processes, eliminating unproductive times, suppressing duplicities, getting rid of unnecessary operations and establishing a more efficient work system that allows obtaining greater performance out of every employee. Below, we offer seven key actions to improve the management of an organisation's time.

Seven keys to improve time management in the company

Get to know the employees

Firstly, it is necessary to have a good knowledge of the profiles, capacities and potential of each member of the company with the help of Human Resources department, only then can the tasks be assigned in a diligent and efficient way.


The company's administration can always be improved as it has the potential to polish its processes in order to improve efficiency. This can be achieved through the introduction of technological resources that allow real-time control over time and current status of work.


The tasks must be categorised by their importance and be recognisable to the employee in an easily identifiable and unambiguous way (for example, very high, high, medium, low and very low priority). In this way every employee is able to automatically distinguish the urgency of each job.

Standard procedures

The standardisation of the documents facilitates the work in their preparation and understanding of who receives the task by being a recognisable format, thus avoiding time wastage.

Clean and tidy

A well-kept work environment, with good lighting, air-conditioned, clear work surfaces, labelled drawers, resources, and other stationeries that are in order and accessible, not only offer greater comfort for employees, but they also improve their productivity, facilitate their day to day tasks and reduce the risk of accidents and sick leave.

Adequate communication

Members of an organisation should have access to data and communication should be open, rather than closed. On the other hand, holding meetings and announcements will be necessary in order to avoid interruptions in the workplace.


The involvement of each member of the organisation in the follow-up of the guidelines for their role development is a crucial factor for better time management. The discipline and commitment to the company is a necessary role that each employee must fulfill.
