TIME MANAGEMENT NEEDED TO PROMOTE INCREASE IN PRUDUCTIVITY.

‘Many Ghanaians consider lateness as GMT meaning Ghana Mans Time. For that matter, many of them would definitely be an hour or two late to work and functions……. not bothered when they turn up late to personal and official appointments. The time has come for us to move away from this culture of lateness to work and functions. just as most of us go to our churches on time in obedience to God and even for fear of our deities, let us resole to throw away behind us lateness to work and functions and be punctual. Authorities in our schools’, work places must enforce rules attendance rules by punishing late comers’.
Efforts by governments the world over have been to promote rapid economic development and increase in productivity. However, one sure means of recording success in this direction is the observance of punctuality by all heads and employees at work places. Currently absenteeism, malingering and poor time management are experienced in many establishments high and low in Ghana leading to the outfits and by extension the nation sliding backwards economically.

FUNDING
Important requirements for all establishments are startup capitals budgetary allocations and workforces for government and private establishments. Most of the organizations don’t lack adequate support but most of them are wobbling due to the behavior of their workforces who have no regard for time.

Nevertheless, the establishments can reverse the negative trend and make adequate progress only when time management is observed by them to make good use of all available worker.

TIME MANAGEMENT
According to Wikipedia, Time management is the act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over when to report for work and to leave for home and when to go on leave and the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increased effectiveness, efficiency or productivity.
Personal time management skills are essential for professional success in any workplace. Those able to successfully implement time management strategies are able to control their workload rather than spend each day in a frenzy of activity reacting to crisis after crisis. These highly effective individuals are able to focus on the tasks with the greatest impact to them and their organization.
Poor time management does not occur only in work places but experienced during functions by politicians and head of institutions turning up late to appointments. Some students also do not observe their time table due to lateness to schools sometimes due to demands by their parents on them to engage in domestic chores and their own failure to get to school early.
In order to turn the tide in favor of Ghana there is the need to embark on a program to encourage time management in all establishment making use of Attendance book, clocking system and web-based application to track an employee’s work hours.
Time management is so important that it must be strictly enforced in schools especially the vocational schools, nursing training schools and teacher training schools. It is important for all school going children and adults to be made to appreciate the importance of time management and the danger in them adopting the negative behaviors such as lateness, absenteeism and malingering.

SENSITIZATION PROGRAMS
In view of the importance of time management to the entire nation, there is the need for the authorities concerned to embark on a nationwide sensitization program to drum it home to workers heads of government organizations schools.
It should take the form of educational forums with senior staff and workers unions school heads and traditional rulers and heads of religious bodies to be addressed by lecturers the staff of National Commission for Civic Education {NCCE}.
Every educational institution would have to be roped into the time management program. Clubs must be established in all schools for pupils and students to learn more about the importance of punctuality and the adherence of school time table and other important events at schools.
Apart from workers and students there is the need for the traditional rulers, religious, heads, to be sensitized to appreciate the importance of punctuality and time management at schools’ work places and at functions.

AWARDS
After the sensitization program, there would be the need to follow up the time management program in schools, work places and at functions. At the end of every year the best schools, work places should be selected to be awarded certificates and other awards for excelling in time management.
