How CRM Can Help You Stay in Control

As a country, let’s celebrate “I am in Control Day” by taking back control of our lives. Stress is inevitable, but we have become one of the most stressed out nations in the world.

In 2011, “more than half of Americans reported personal health problems (53 percent) as a source of stress.” And it’ll come as no surprise to at least half of you that one of the most significant sources of stress involves our work, coming in at 70 percent (Source: The Impact of Stress, APA). It’s time to gain back some control.

Business professionals rely on all sorts of information, from documents to client contact sheets, databases, and more. Having that information sorted, stored and easily accessible at all times is the first and greatest step to mastering control in the workforce. David R. Butcher, examining the results of a SkillSoft study of more than 3,000 people, reports the top 10 work stresses (over half of which are affected by disorganization) are:

  1. Workload
  2. Feeling undervalued
  3. Deadlines
  4. Type of work people have to do
  5. Having to take on other people’s work
  6. Lack of job satisfaction
  7. Lack of control over the working day
  8. Having to work long hours
  9. Frustration with the working environment
  10. Targets

CRM can help you overcome over half of these stresses. Stop spending minutes or hours stressing out about and searching for misplaced information. Manage your information better and free up more time to be productive and less time in the office.
