Manage Employee Tasks
A well-oiled machine needs all the parts to move in harmony with each other. And if the parts rely on tasks being completed, then you know what you need to do. It’s simple — prioritize and manage your employees’ tasks.
But where to start?
- First, assign the task to your frontline worker and share a deadline. If the task is a big one, then think about cutting it down into parts. Above all, be clear about what you want to achieve, and transparent about the bigger picture. One task for a whole team? Assign it in one go.
- Next, you want to follow up with your employee and check in. Ask for feedback, how’s the task going, and how are they going about it? They might surprise you with some insights that’ll have you rethinking the task. But hold on, won’t it take you far too long to follow up with each and every employee? That’s why a task management tool is what you need — from app your employees are already using.
- Also, have it all recorded in one place. You guessed it, we’re talking about managing employee tasks straight from your phone. Having that overview is exactly what you need for your reports.
- Finally, let your employees attach photos and videos to tasks for feedback, or you know, support for their colleagues.
