Many part-time employees are able to accomplish almost as much as their full-time counterparts, according to an April 2008 article published at RecruiterDaily.com.au. Recruiter Daily is a recruitment site for employers and jobseekers, with offices in Australia, New Zealand, the US and the UK.
The article reports that many part-time recruiters bill almost as much time in a three-day week as they did when they were still working full-time. The article includes several tips on effective time management that were provided by part-time workers. One of these relates to scaling back expectations about how much can be accomplished when work time is limited. Another tip recognizes that anticipating the needs of clients before they arise plays a crucial role in being better prepared to deal with them when needed. Yet another tip realizes that setting priorities and effective strategic planning are essential.
It may be necessary for part-time employees to be available by mobile on their off days, but according to Karen Gordon-Lewis of New Zealand's Neal Andrews & Associates, while they are working “part-timers are 150% productive and focused to make deals happen, because they simply do not have time to waste.”
