Work routines

All employees have routines to do the job they are set to. Routines are useful for task organization. They may be job descriptions, instructions, procedures and the like. Best practices define what needs to be done and how to do so. When an employee is absent from his work, others should be able to fill in and do the job using prescribed routines. Therefore tasks should be described and explained as clear as possible.

Routines must exist in a structured written form. They should be numbered, and easy to understand. For such procedures to be accepted by all, they must be circulated beforehand so that as many as possible can help with their understanding, ev. their proposals. This ensures understanding and continuity of routines. It is expensive that best practices disappear when a person switches or leaves his job. Good practices are those that are followed up, renewed and less stressful for the implicated individuals.
