TO BE SURE THAT YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
DOESN’T DROP THIS SUMMER, CONSIDER
THESE SUGGESTIONS TO KEEP YOU
ON TRACK PROFESSIONALLY
It’s beneficial to know when people
will or will not be available due to
summer vacations and activities.
Knowing your coworkers schedules
will enable you to plan your work
week effectively and efficiently.
KNOW EVERYONE’S SCHEDULE
Be proactive by communicating your
schedule as well. For example: an out
of office auto reply or a signature for the
bottom of your emails will let people
know when you will be out of office.
CLEARLY & FREQUENTLY
COMMUNICATE YOUR SCHEDULE
Summer is undoubtedly the
season where people tend
to be the most distracted
and unintentionally forget
things. Don’t be afraid to
send multiple reminders.
Like previously stated, people tend
to be out of office more often in the
summer. With that being said, the
frequency of normal meetings might
drop a bit. Take this time to learn
and grow as an employee.
PLAN FOR INDIVIDUAL
Between the beautiful weather and sunshine, you
probably would rather be outside, causing you to
get distracted and have to finish some work at
home. Choose a few projects and complete
them, then plan out the remainder of your
projects - this way you’ll be on the right track.
MANAGE YOUR EXPECTATIONS
OUTSIDE OF WORK
Relax. It’s summer. Give
yourself a little break by allowing
more time to complete projects.
GIVE YOURSELF MORE TIME
TO COMPLETE PROJECTS
Try getting to work 30-60
minutes earlier than normal
so you can free some time up
while the sun is still shining.
GET TO WORK EARLY
Everyone needs some
“you” time. Plan a day
trip, engage in a
hobby, sleep, etc. Do
something that makes
you happy and you’ll
be surprised how
much more productive
