We place candidates in flexible positions every week. And one of the most frequent things employers say, is that their new recruits are often their most productive members of staff.

It’s fair to say that flexible workers have a strong work ethic and want to do their job to their best ability without wasting precious time elsewhere. You won’t, for example, find them spending hours on social media sites – they know how to make the most of their time.

So how can we all be more productive without reading another self-help book to do it? Here are our top tips from some of our esteemed Ten2Two Directors:

  • If you work on the move, make the most of every moment. Waking early and getting in some quick wins in the morning can really set you up for the day.

  • I always carry a notebook and pen with me – very old fashioned, but it never runs out of battery and I know exactly how to operate it!

  • I always stick to the job in hand. And I try not to be all things to all people – this can hold you back and stop you being as focused.

  • I use my personal hotspot on my mobile so I can get a fast connection for my laptop when I’m out and about. I get loads done sitting in the car whilst waiting for the kids to finish dance or swimming classes, and it’s so much better than squinting at your phone. I also try to handle things just once; if I think about it, I try to do it there and then.

And here are a few more tips for working more productively during the summer months.
