Improve Your Work!

A worker checking off a check list

Author: Liz Frome

Ask yourself: What are you great at?

  • Make a list and review and be honest with yourself.

  • Identify what your talents are and learn how to use them to boost your motivation at work.


Work quality is a term that can be used to measure how effective, efficient, and accurate your work is. It can be measured in terms of the quantity and quality of work produced, or in terms of the time taken to produce your work. Quality work is when a person does their job in a way that is effective, efficient, and accurate. This means that they produce a lot of good work in a short amount of time, and it is accurate.


At The Job Shop I strive to let my staff produce their work as long as all of us keep in mind The Job Shop’s Mission and quality of work! I try to create an environment that you work on your own and keep our quality standard in mind at all times.


In my opinion some of the elements that make up quality work are:

  • Accuracy: This means that your work is free from mistakes, and it meets all the requirements.

  • Efficiency: This means that your work is done promptly, and it uses the resources available in the best way possible. (If you need more resources to be more efficient you should talk to your employer.)

  • Effectiveness: This means that your work achieves its goal, and it produces the desired results.


There are different ways to measure quality work, but most methods will focus on one or more of these three elements.


Why Is Quality Working Important?

In the workplace, quality work  can help build a good reputation so that you are likely to get new clients or customers. It can also lead to promotions and increased pay.


Here are some benefits of quality work:

  • Increased productivity

  • Improved accuracy

  • Faster turnaround times

  • Reduced stress levels

  • Greater job satisfaction

  • Better working relationships with colleagues

  • Improved profitability

The above are just some of the benefits that can be achieved by ensuring that work is of high quality.


How To Measure & Evaluate Work Quality

There are many different ways to measure and evaluate work quality. Some methods are more suitable for certain types of jobs than others.


Here are some common methods that are used to measure work quality:

Output method: This involves measuring the quantity and quality of the output produced. This is suitable for jobs that have a lot of tangible outputs such as manufacturing or design.

Time method: This involves measuring the time taken to complete a task or produce an output. This is suitable for jobs that are time-sensitive, such as customer service or project management. (This method is very important for The Job Shop.)

Error method: This involves measuring the number of errors made during a task. This is suitable for jobs that require a high degree of accuracy such as data entry or quality control.


Quality assurance method: This involves checking the work against a set of standards. This is suitable for all types of jobs as it can be adapted to any type of work.


How To Improve Work Quality in the Workplace

Complete Difficult Tasks First

By getting the most difficult tasks out of the way first, you can focus on the easier tasks later in the day. This will help improve your work quality overall. In addition, this ensures that you are less tired at the beginning of the day when you are more likely to make mistakes.


Prioritize Focus

It is important to focus on one task at a time to get it done well. This can be difficult, especially if you have a lot of tasks to complete in a day.

  • One way to help with this is to create a list of all the tasks that need to be completed and then tackle them one by one.

  • Another way to improve focus is to eliminate distractions. This may mean turning off your email notifications or putting your phone away while you work.


Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses

Knowing your strengths and weaknesses can help you delegate tasks accordingly and set yourself up for success.


Keep Communication a Priority

Communication is key in any workplace. To maintain quality control, it is important to keep lines of communication open. This means being clear about expectations, deadlines, and goals.

It also means being available to answer questions or offer help when needed.


There are a few different ways that an organization can measure work quality. One common method is to track customer satisfaction levels. If customers are happy with the products and services they receive, then it stands to reason that they are of high quality.


At The Job Shop we are in constant communication with our clients and candidates and are always open to feedback. We strive to not take feedback personally but understand we want to produce a quality product! (Feedback from our clients and candidates helps us to constantly improve our quality of work.)


“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” ~Henry Ford.
