Increasing Workplace Productivity Is Not An Easy Thing To Do
February 13, 2013 2 Comments
If you are someone who hires employees then your main goal is to get the best results out of your team. Increasing workplace productivity is an issue that has been bothering people for ages. Today, after extensive research on why companies succeed (or fail), the business world is ready to share some simple tips on how to turn a boring workplace into an oasis of productivity:
1) Accountability. An employee must remember that if anything goes south, he will be the one to blame. This will help the worker to be more cautious, and serve as a reminder that BSing around won’t be tolerated.
2) Don’t be a dictator. Don’t get me wrong, managing the work force is important. But at the same time, employees must feel that they are trusted. Give your people the freedom to do things their way, thereby allowing them to learn from their mistakes and consequently improving their overall performance.
3) Encourage, reward and motivate your subordinates. An employee must feel that his contribution to the company is appreciated. You can do that by giving away rewards to the most productive workers.
4) Be accessible. By setting up effective communication channels, you will have your finger on the pulse of your business. The more feedback you receive, the more you will know about what needs to be improved.
5) Break routines. Doing the same tasks over and over again can be demotivating. That’s why, sometimes, it is a good idea to give your workers some other tasks. This will help them increase their qualification.
6) Be realistic. Putting pressure on your workers by demanding the impossible will create a tense environment around the office.
7) Let your subordinates know why their job is important. Making money is great, but knowing that their work is meaningful can make your team work with even more passion and energy.
8) Lead by example. Don’t let your subordinates think that you are just riding on their backs.
9) Stay up to date with new technologies. Introduce anything that might improve the overall working process. If necessary, provide training for your workers.
