Productivity in the workplace is a culture that needs to be cultivated in the work force. The common mistake made by business owners is focusing all their efforts on making sure that their balance sheets and profit and loss statements and this is how they measure the success of their business. One criticism about financial statements that is developing recently is the inability to include the value and contribution of employees to the firm. Therefore, the question is how best can you keep your employees? Andy Core gives two simple ways of ensuring that you retain all your staff and increase the productivity in the company.
Employees Love a Challenge
It is important to challenge employees to tasks in a manner that allows them to achieve more of their goal in the firm and ultimately increasing the productivity of the firm. Reports posted on a board visible to everyone can let employees see how they are doing compared to others. Secondly, teach them the importance of setting, tracking and achieving goals. This will give them a focus and ignite a drive within them to achieve something more.
It is important that employees feel, and are actually empowered, through working for you. For example, engaging in training of certain aspects of their jobs will help them to develop new ways to work around problems and the interaction promotes cross training amongst the staff.
These tips are quite simple, but in order to use them effectively for increasing productivity, there is a lot of convincing that needs to be done in order to ensure their success.
