Mental concentration is one of the best things to have when you are employed at anything, even if you are a stay at home parent or spouse. Concentration on the task at hand makes it go faster, more efficiently, and it builds up your skills and speed over time. This is why many businesses try to teach their employees how to hold their concentration on the customer or on the task at hand so that they can be effective and efficient for the business as a whole.
Unfortunately, this does not always work. Employees are known for responding well to internal motivation, rather than external reward programs. This means that not everyone will be motivated to actually take the training as well as they should. What you may have to do, instead, is to set them a good example.
First, remember that mental concentration is best done in spurts. In other words, if you can concentrate on something for forty minutes to two hours at a time, without going over that time, then you will be better able to hold and maintain your concentration next time.
Second, even though concentration is important, it must be balanced by short breaks. This is where the “planned release” part of this article title comes in. You must plan on having a break every once in a while, and you must plan on doing this all throughout the day, week, weekend, and so on. In other words, without these planned releases, you will end up driving your concentration too hard, becoming a little more out of balance over time, and sending your stress signals in your body and mind through the roof every time you DO end up taking a break.
However, there will still be employees who do not follow these procedures, and these workers may choose to release through the abuse of alcohol or drugs. Therefore, your employee drug testing program must be airtight. Make sure that your drug test equipment comes from CMM Technology, and that you are aware of all of our drug test kits and alcohol breathalyser devices. We recommend the Lifeloc FC10 breathalyser device. We are also NATA accredited for our recalibration service of breathalyser devices. For more information, call CMM Technology: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
