From gamification to austere cubicles, every company out there is looking for ways to improve their employee’s productivity, and everyone seems to have a different idea about how to do that. Outside of turning your company upside down and investing time and energy to create a corporate culture that will keep employees in their desks and on task, there are some simpler and creative ways to increase employee productivity.
Increase Employee Productivity
- Freely give constructive feedback on a regular basis: This Forbes article reports that “recognition is often a more powerful motivator than money.” Giving your employees extra time and feedback will make them feel that they’re working for something as a part of a team rather than just the next paycheck. It makes work gratifying. You’ll likely not only get improved productivity, but improved quality of work too.
- Be open to change and suggestions: Unswerving loyalty to the “way things have always been done” can hold employees back, especially when a task is outdated or no longer effective. Embracing change will communicate to your employees that they are welcome to make suggestions without being ignored or shot down. Being a part of the decision making process is a great way to make them feel more involved.
- Streamline their process (efficiency from outside): Part of embracing chance is bringing in new technologies that will make life easier for you and your employees. If they feel like they’re spending less time on menial tasks, you’ll start to see improvement in their productivity.
