Workplace New Year’s Resolutions

With the New Year fast approaching, it’s time to set new goals for 2022. Usually, we focus on what we can do in our personal life, but why not set some work resolutions? From organization, to finding a work-life balance, here are a couple of great resolutions you should consider making this new year!

  1. Goal Setting

Many times, we work with our managers to set yearly, quarterly or monthly goals. These are great to keep us on track and work towards growing in our job, company and career. Goals add structure to your days and weeks. Take the time to set daily or weekly goals for yourself to not only get you to meet your bigger goals, but keep you on track with your work.

  1. Get Organized

There is nothing worse than sitting down at your desk and staring at piles of old papers, yesterday’s coffee, and just unneeded clutter. The new year is a great time to start fresh. Clean your desk, make a new organizational plan for your email or files. Do something that will help you be more productive in the new year. Don’t be afraid to clean out that bottom desk drawer you’ve been dreading, it will only make you feel better and ready to conquer your week!

  1. Learn Something New – Invest in Yourself

One of the best ways to grow as a person and a professional is learning something new that will help move you forward in your career. Is there an area you want to improve in? Or maybe something brand new you think will benefit you in your job and your company? There are endless virtual options – webinars, virtual courses, even blogs! You can also look into local networking and professional groups that host events. This is a great way to learn new things, network within your industry and continue to grow.

  1. Creating Healthy Habits – Time Blocking

When working from home, the line between the workday and personal time gets blurred. It’s easy to forget to take time for yourself and lose some of the healthy habits you usually have, especially if you get busy. Time blocking is a way you can take some time for yourself during the busy workday by simply marking it off on your calendar. Take a 15-minute midday walk or block off time for a real lunch break. Don’t forget to take care of yourself in the new year!

New Years resolutions are a fun way to work on improving yourself in every facet of life, so don’t forget about work! Find ways unique to you that help you stay motivated and feeling great. PeopleShare wishes you and your loved ones a Happy New Year!
