One Hidden Benefit of Managed IT Services
We hate to be the bad guy, but we’re certain that you cannot multitask nearly as well as you think you can. Multitasking is just not how the human brain works, and whether or not you believe in the psychology of it, we think you stand to benefit by outsourcing some of the tasks on your plate to a managed service provider.
Managed services are effective to help you spend less time on your IT and more time on your actual job duties and responsibilities.
The Proof is in the Proverbial Pudding
To put things in perspective, only about 2.5% of people can effectively multitask, so it’s highly unlikely that you are in the minority who can do so without compromising the quality of your work.
What you think is multitasking is really just your brain switching gears over and over, and the more complicated these tasks are, the less effective it is at switching between them. Your performance is sure to suffer if you can’t keep up.
How This Shows Up in the Workplace
It’s difficult at best to do multiple tasks at the same time, so let’s take a look at some of the tasks that might be pulling you away from your important work:
- Managing employees to ensure they are reaching your organizational and operational goals.
- Managing the public face of the company, including how you appear to the community, clients, and vendors.
- Ensuring compliance with laws and regulations.
- Managing the sales and marketing efforts of your organization.
Notice how we haven’t even mentioned IT on that list yet; it’s a whole other beast to tackle.
