6 Productivity Tips from ProTeam:
1. SWEAT LESS
The below tip from ProTeam Vice President and General Manager Matt Reimers speaks to the very heart of ProTeam Productivity. Truly productive innovations make the job easier, not harder. Just like how our lightweight backpack vacuum will vacuum the same area with half the energy and effort it takes with an upright vacuum.
2. DO THE IMPOSSIBLE
Marketing Director Jacalyn High often has to tackle the impossible as a traveling, working mom of two young children. Her advice is this: “Be willing to try something new or a new angle to a problem. It may not be easy at first, and it may take some getting used to, but usually in the end you are successful.”
3. MAXIMIZE IMPACT
This tip is from Matthew Riley, Senior Commodity Manager for our parent-company, Emerson Tool Company.
4. TAKE ACTION NOW
Marketing Manager Lacy Schmidt’s tip is to be wary of the impulse to talk when you can take action.
5. DAILY INSPECTIONS
National Account Manager Lisa Winter counsels her customers to keep on top of end-of-day inspections. That way, you can plan for maintenance, repairs, or equipment downtime before you show up to work the next day.
6. PLAN YOUR WORK; WORK YOUR PLAN
Canadian Country Manager Marvin Mauer says that his “Plan your work; work your plan” tip will help keep minor day-to-day emergencies from throwing you off course.
