How To Manage Your Time During Incoming Calls

There are only so many hours in a workday and it is up to each individual employee to make them count. It can be difficult to manage your time wisely when you are constantly answering the phone. Below are some tips that can help you with time management for incoming calls.

Get Your Priorities Straight
Knowing how to prioritize your workload is an indispensable skill that can be applied to any job. When you are handling an incoming call, start to think about whether or not the situation at hand should be considered a high priority. If it is not, you may be able to put it on the back burner and deal with it later in the day.

Give Them Your Email Address
For matters that are not urgent, you can give callers your email address as another means of communication. That way, they can communicate with you directly and you can get back to them when you have time. This will give you more time in your workday to handle tasks that are at the top of your to-do list.

Let Incoming Calls Go To Voicemail
There may come a time when you need to hunker down and get work done without answering any calls. If you need to take this route, simply let your incoming calls go straight to your voicemail inbox. Be sure to set aside time in your day to follow up with anyone who left a message for you.
