INTRODUCTION

 

1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

In any organization, time is related very high a secretary that does not work with time can not be productive in an office. So the secretary must know how to manage her time properly as well as that of her boss to be able to achieve the organization’s set goals.

          Time can be described by Bhatia (2002) as the one commodity that is unbiased, available to all in equal amounts. It does not cost anything monetarily and it is completely of our own disposal. We never seem to have enough of it and it is not possible to achieve it once used. Time wasting on the other hand has been observed as the major cause of secretary’s poor performance on the job. Good secretaries are those who can manage themselves as well as others.

          Time according to Bennelt (2001) is the inexplicable raw material of everything. Time can be given different definitions. In a day of 24 hours, sometimes we hear some people say that the day is too slow while others say that it is fast. Even a year can be said to be long or short. It is a popular saying that time is money. Invariably, it is important that time should be properly utilized or well managed. Mackenzie (1995) asserted that an efficient secretary arranges her day’s work according to priority in order to meet up with the boss’s target, thereby achieving greater results in the work place.
