The value of time management at work | The new times


Learning to manage time at work is an important aspect of task delivery and productivity.

It is a factor that affects your performance and productivity in your workplace. This will make you a more efficient worker and you will be able to meet deadlines with ease. You can also produce quality work, according to “About Leaders”, a page that helps develop leadership skills through shared articles.

Mass Media and Communication student Frank Ntarindwa says that to prove your productivity and professionalism, you need to be a good time manager.

“If you’re not a good time manager, you risk not achieving the expected results; you are likely to make a lot of mistakes by rushing through tasks. And can also show a lesser capacity for professionalism because if in a workplace you have the same working hours as your colleagues and you do not meet deadlines, it will show that you are not professional in everything you do, you become less productive and get more workloads,” he says.

Diane Uwamahoro, who works as a customer service manager at ISON Rwanda, says effective time management requires people in the workplace to analyze their workload and stay focused on productive efforts.

“If you know how to manage your time at work, it will help you perform well. Time management does not mean doing all the tasks without resting or breathing, it means planning the tasks and giving them the time they need to be completed while ensuring that the time given is not interrupted by unnecessary things” , she says.

Alain Ntwari, graphic designer, adds that time management at work means that you are a serious employee and that you value your work.

“Employees have a life and must live it. But if you try to live your life without first fulfilling your responsibilities, you will be seen as an unserious employee lacking in values, I cannot take a vacation knowing that I am leaving a workload that needs urgent attention . Time management should be about how you value your responsibilities and how prepared you are to perform.

Poor time management also leads to procrastination, work-life imbalance, unwanted stress, missed deadlines and meetings, Ntwari adds.

Why is time management important?

“Time management is about prioritizing your tasks and company services. It also helps the company to deliver services to its audience in an efficient manner, employees who manage their time well at work are more productive and happier too because they don’t have unnecessary stress at work due to too much things to do in less time,” says Aline Uwamahoro, who works as a manager in a telecommunications services company.

According to About Leaders, time management is vital for many reasons. Managers need to assess the productivity of their workers and ensure they are getting the most out of it.

Delivery of work on time. Setting a deadline or deadline for the tasks you are working on can help you complete them on time. It also helps to manage your workload effectively and increases productivity.

Performing quality work. Your employer is not only looking for your punctuality but also the quality of the work you will send him. If you manage your time well and prioritize vital activities, you can deliver a higher quality of work.

You accomplish more with less effort. If you learn to control and manage your time, your ability to concentrate will improve a lot.
