Is your Quality, Health & Safety or Environmental Compliance system working for you? How much time are you wasting trying to chase people to get things done, trying to remember to follow up on tasks, getting your Audits up to date, controlling documentation, dealing with customer complaints and capturing your Health & Safety Risks or incidents?
Let MANGO help you with a simpler way that makes the system not only work for you but, gets everyone involved in the system simply so you never have to remember again.
I absolutely love MANGO. The software is easy to use and has taken hours off my workload.

Daily work life can be busy, meetings, phone calls, paperwork, emails, more meetings. It just never stops. By lunchtime, your head hurts and your thinking I just need 5 minutes to get things in an orderly list, then I'll be on top of it. The reality is that the rest of your organisation is probably having the same issues and as a result ultimately the organisation as a whole just keeps running just to keep up. So when do you and the organisation get time to think? When do you get time to plan and be strategic?
Hiding seems like an extreme description but that's what a lot of people resort to in order to get time to concentrate to get time to work on the business or work on themselves. Unattended offices or meeting rooms become the hang out areas for leaders and exec teams just trying to get 5 minutes to work on the business or just to get caught up. When finding a manager in a meeting room working away instead of having lunch to get some quiet time her reaction was "Don't tell anyone!"
It's not unusual for people to feel that they have to "steal" time to get work done, which is a crazy idea. taking time out to plan is not stealing, it's your job and you need to do it if you and your team are going to succeed. You should take time for yourself to get work or planning done and you should make time for your leadership team as a group to do this as well. Plan it into your calendar as THINKING TIME and consider it a must do.
There are a number of places that can and should, be used as great Thinking Spots. Places that you and the team can go to get things done and be a little more strategic about things.
There are places that, while you will get stuff done, you won't get the best stuff done so consider carefully before you resort to any of the following:
You will have said this to colleagues, to your kids if you have them (if you don't you will when you do, trust me).. if you are going to do something do it right 1st time. if you are going to take time out for thinking and you absolutely have to do it right, plan it in your calendar, switch off your phone & email and just go somewhere that going to let you do your best work.
