Your business depends on the productivity of your employee. In order to encourage your workforce to consistently produce their best work, it is important to implement policies and practices that encourage your employees to spend their time at work focused and efficient. Learn more how to maximize employee productivity in today’s blog, below.
Encourage 5 minute breaks
While it may seem counterintuitive, encouraging your employees to take small but frequent breaks can greatly increase their productivity. When too much time is spent on a single task, it can be easy to become bleary-eyed and unfocused. By encouraging them to take a 5 minute break every hour to stretch, walk around, or get a drink of water, they’ll be refreshed when they get back to their desk and ready to approach their task with fresh eyes.
Focus on accountability
When you don’t think anyone is watching, it can be tempting to let small details fall through the cracks. This is why it is so important to implement accountability measures that let your employees know that you are paying attention to their performance. In addition, accountability measures also give you the opportunity to praise and acknowledge employees for doing a good job, which will increase morale. When they make mistakes do not chastise, but make it a learning/coaching moment so they learn from their mistakes.
Create a great company culture
Employees do their best work when they feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves, so focusing on creating a culture where your employees truly feel like they fit in can go a long way in creating productivity. And be sure to allow your employees to personalize their spaces as much as possible: After all, they spend a large portion of their waking time at work, so making those hours a pleasant experience can go a long way in improving morale, which has an immediate positive impact on productivity.
