Simplifying Your New Year’s Resolutions

By Posted January 5th, 2015

2015 GoalsHappy New Year! It’s hard to believe it’s 2015. It’s the time of year when I look back at the last year and plan to improve things in the coming year. Whether I actually accomplish all those ‘goals’ is sometimes a challenge. This year, I’m approaching my ‘resolutions’ with a little different spin. I’m looking at things that I can truly accomplish and setting up plans to actually make them happen. In the long run, these resolutions will save me from undue stress and make me happier.

These are my personal goals, but also I set some up for my professional life as well. We all have more on our plates than can be accomplished. But if we truly look at things that will simplify our work lives and translate them into actionable items, we can achieve a better work-life balance and eliminate some of the late-night, “burn the candle-at-both ends” kind of days.

But how? We can start by taking a look at some of the things that are manually intensive in our work lives. Pick two of them and really, really look at all the steps that you take to get that end result. Then, look for ways to automate things. Can you eliminate some of the steps that really are NOT necessary? Can you streamline the process? If you can, you have the opportunity to shave time off your workday, and utilize that time to focus somewhere else.

For HCM and payroll professionals (which you probably are if you’re reading this!), SpinifexIT solutions can be a great help with simplifying processes. Whether it’s reporting, documents generation, or other tasks. With solutions like Easy Reporter and Easy Documents, simply gather data from SAP (or OUTSIDE your SAP system), generate your reports or correspondence and send them automatically to your recipient’s inbox or ESS/MSS screen. Automating HCM/payroll report and document distribution is just one small way you can achieve a better work-life balance and simplify your life. Happy New Year!
