The science is in on multitasking: human beings just can't do it. But with dual-purpose cash and check scanners, saving time doesn't have to come at the cost of productivity.
Summer is almost over, and as businesses enter into the almost universally busy fall season, the demands on employees will certainly increase. For management, this means shifting attention from maintaining productivity during the summer slump to helping employees handle the influx of business.
Maintaining clear and effective communication is vital to workplace productivity. Entrepreneur contributor Adam Toren highlighted the impact of offering employees real-time feedback, noting that when employees feel they are accomplishing something, they become intrinsically motivated. It's also important to take employees' differences into account when sharing information, Toren advised. Tailoring your communication style to the workplace demographic enables business owners to get the message across clearly.
Preemptively working to prevent conflict is also an important element in creating an environment where employees can thrive. In an article for Entrepreneur, Heather R. Huhman advised setting clear procedures for reporting and handling conflict between coworkers, adding that by training managers in mediation, business owners create an environment where employees do not feel pressured to handle disputes on their own. This ensures conflicts are handled appropriately.
In a January 2016 article for the Harvard Business Review, Rich Fernandez, co-founder of learning development company Wisdom Labs Co-Founder, cautioned against multitasking in the workplace. Fernandez declared multitasking a myth, quoting neuroscientist Dr. JoAnn Deak, PhD, who explained that multitasking doubles both the amount of time it takes to complete a given task and the number of mistakes made throughout the process.
Fortunately, machines aren't subject to the same human errors when it comes to multitasking. Investing in dual-purpose cash and check scanners helps business owners relieve some of the demands on their employees. Dual-purpose cash and check scanners cut back on deposit time and increase the accuracy of processing cash and check payments. Reliable and easy-to-use, this technology also improve employee morale, making balancing efficiency and accuracy simple during the busy fall months and beyond.
