Productive Work Habits | Recorded Seminar


Open enrollment virtual seminars for your workforce


The modern work world is full of distractions. E-mail, social media, the internet, and chatty co-workers cut into productivity and prompt procrastination. Yet, work left unfinished today becomes a mountain of work due tomorrow, making a lack of productivity one of the biggest causes of profit loss for organizations.

A national survey conducted by Harris Poll included a representative sample of 2,175 hiring and human resource managers across industries and company sizes. The managers said that the consequences of distraction were compromised quality of work, lower moral because of other employees having to pick up the slack, negative impact on boss/employee relationships, missed deadlines and loss in revenue.

This instructor-led course is designed to teach employees how to kick bad habits and stay more focused on work throughout the day. As a result, employees will work at a higher level, be able to more effectively prioritize tasks, improve relationships with coworkers and bosses, and create long-lasting behavioral changes.
