I changed my department in my current organisation recently. As the saying goes, it is always difficult at the start of the new area of work, albeit the same organisation. In my current work area, I note that there are load of emails floating in my emailbox as compared to the situation in my previous department. Initially, I found myself having difficulties in coping with this situation and ended up unable to complete my work within the working hours. I ended up having to work extra hours and this would result in lower earning per hours taking into consideration of extra hours of work which I had to put in order to complete the work. I have come of the new methods. I would focus on the important work such as approving work done by my team members and clearing my own work. I would handle the emails which do not require my immediate attention and require the archiving of the emails.
Hopefully, I will be able to complete my work within the working hours by adopting the above work strategy.
