Your role in stress management?

We have all had it…the gutt wrenching feeling of being overwhelmed and stressed with work! As a manager, this cannot be ignored; and for good reason!

There are many articles online, giving advice on leadership, role clarity and development of staff that you can read. It remains a balancing act to master the art of managing stress levels of both your team and yourself. Being able to manage your employees’ workload is a great bonus. This week, we are sharing how a Fortix Enterprise platform can do this on a daily basis.

Assigning Importance & Urgency

As standard practice in creating work requests, you assign a priority relating to how ‘important’ the job is (Low, Normal, High) and select the Due Date when the task completion is expected.

Viewing Workloads 

What happens when everything is High Priority and everything starts to back up?  Firstly don’t stress, the platform has several ways to find out who is assigned to which task enabling tasks to be re-assigned if needed.

Managing Priorities

That’s all great, but what happens when there is only one person equipped to perform a specialised task and their work is piling up more than ever! How can we let them know which task is to be completed first? In comes the Work Priority report, which helps queue work for users based on priority:
