Take on More Work?

May 27, 2009

For the next several Wednesdays, we’ll be featuring a multi-part series of articles titled Are You Doing All You Can to Keep Your Job? Each installment offers quick tips to help you succeed at work, and Part 2 deals with taking on more work and being proactive.

Between headcount reductions and shortened work-weeks, a lot of us are already taking on more work while having less time to get it done. To some, going above and beyond by asking for even more work simply seems impossible. On the other hand, the work does need to get done, and if you’re the one to do it-efficiently, effectively and with a smile-your manager will surely take note.

Time management is becoming increasingly crucial as we continue to deal with the recession. Take a look at how you spend your days and try to determine how you can better organize your routine in order to accomplish more. For example, can certain tasks be combined, reduced or even eliminated? Would a new piece of equipment simplify a major process? Be sure to do your homework; research potential upgrades thoroughly before presenting the information to your manager.
