Maximize Productivity in the Workplace; Engage and Succeed

To maintain productivity in the workplace, remember not to lump your workforce all together.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance

We often find that it is the little things that have the most effect. In business, there is a tendency to focus on productivity in the workplace and forget that our workforce comprises of individuals who need to be treated as such if the company is to succeed. A small amount of time and money directed towards employee engagement initiatives will ensure that the employees buy into the company, and they will have three main benefits:

More Creative Workforce

When we feel valued at work and are in tune with the aims of the company, we are able to let our creative juices flow in a structured and considered manner. An innovative workforce is both willing and capable of finding solutions to problems that may arise, meaning that less time is spent fretting, and more time is spent working.

More Efficient Workforce

A worker who truly buys into the philosophy of the company is far more likely to enjoy the work that they are undertaking. As a result, their minds will be focused on the task at hand throughout their shift, thus minimizing distractions. A recent study of a UK insurance company showed that a workforce that engaged with the company had 35% less down time than a less engaged workforce. This is effectively adding one extra person per eight engaged employees to the workforce; the result can only be beneficial to the productivity in the workplace for your company.

Increased Profit

We go into business to make profit, and it is undeniable that a combination of efficiency and creativity will ensure that you maximize the profitability of your company. Studies have suggested that a company with a high level of employee engagement makes, on average, twice as much profit as one with a low level of engagement.

A small investment in engagement initiatives will ensure big returns in productivity in the workplace.

Professional Speaker Elaborates on the Role of Commitment

Your goals are withing your reach as professional speaker Andy Core advises. Only dedication and commitment will get the job done.

Your goals are within your reach as professional speaker Andy Core advises. It takes dedication and commitment to get the job done.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

Professional speaker Andy Core views the realization of achieving goals as the key to success in anything. Achieving goals usually seems like a far-fetched aspect of life. Living life in cycles that never seem to move towards your goals can lead to some serious discouragement.

Commitment

No one ever achieves anything without being committed to it. You can achieve some average results, but your true potential can only be realized when you commit to achieving something specific. Life goals need but two things, dedication and commitment. You can explain it in many ways, but it will all boil down to this: Next time you feel low and are rethinking your goals, redo the process of planning and ensure you identify your goal and what you want to achieve.

Tracking

It is important to sit down and write what you want to achieve. Equally important is your ability to track your progress. You can utilize any method to track it such as a goal tracking worksheet or go online and search for some of the goal management tools available. The important thing here is not the method of tracking, but rather that you do it, and on a regular basis. This will help you know where you are in relation to where you need to be.

Commitment and tracking combined can help you get a step ahead in achieving what you have set to do.

Convention Speakers: Erasing Stress in the Workplace

Convention speakers emphasize the importance of erasing stress and tell you how.

Convention speakers emphasize the importance of erasing stress in the workplace and tell you how.

What?

Convention speakers emphasise that stress in the workplace is an important issue that must be taken seriously by employers if they hope to have a productive and efficient workforce. Not all stress is negative, and in small amounts may even enhance the performance of an individual. However, excessive amounts of stress in the workplace must be avoided.

Why?

Around 1 in 5 members of the working population will suffer from stress, resulting in over 105 billion working days lost annually. In the UK alone, this costs employers at least $1.89 billion per year.

Although a serious matter, it is a problem that can be prevented and overcome by investing in the wellbeing of staff. Statistics show that for every $1.50 invested in employee wellbeing there can be seen a return of $4.50 in improved efficiency and productivity.

How?

As an employer, you should make every effort to try to minimize the negative effects of stress in the workplace. There are many strategies that can be taken to achieve this. Often a combination of both individual approaches and a whole group approach can be the most effective. Convention speakers highlight the importance of encouraging:

  • Organization
  • Teamwork
  • Optimism
  • Physical exercise and healthy eating
  • Work-life balance
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Independence

Convention speakers state that by taking simple steps to improve the well being of employees the disastrous effects of stress in the workplace can be greatly reduced, resulting in the enhanced performance of the team as a whole.

Leadership Speakers Explain How to Introduce Yourself Before an Interview

Leadership speakers are often masters in presenting themselves. Learn from them and introduce yourself well.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

First Impressions

First impressions always count. They have a major role in how the employer will view you as a candidate. What you say in the first moment will often say a lot about you and give the employer a hint about whether or not to hire you.

Most managers actually make the decision to hire someone judging by the first impressions they get by talking in the first few moments. Sometimes it’s all on what the candidate did or didn’t do when they met. Because of this, leadership speakers say that it is very important to observe interview manners and to tread carefully through how you introduce yourself during the interview.

Upon Arriving

When you get to the interview, make sure you introduce yourself to the receptionist. Simply give your name and the reason you are there. It is essential that you know the name of the interviewer. It will help the receptionist check your appointment faster.

If, by chance, the hiring manager comes out to meet you, take the initiative and introduce yourself with a smile and this time, make sure you mention how much you appreciate meeting them or the opportunity to be interviewed.

Leadership speaker Andy Core says that first impressions may determine whether you will get the job or not.

Exercise as a Part of Workplace Wellness Programs

Workplace wellness programs often allow employees to be actively involved physically. This helps them to get away from work, relax and improve their health.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

A number of businesses these days have wellness programs that encourage looking after yourself through exercise. It is good to get at least 30 minutes of exercise three times a week. Here are some advantages.

You Feel Good About Yourself

When you exercise, chemicals in your brain are released that make you feel good. You are more likely to feel good about the way you look and this will increase your self-esteem. Your weight is more controlled and you will be in better shape.

Working will be a Pleasure

Exercise boosts your high-density lipoprotein, which is HDL (good cholesterol). It decreases your chance of getting cardiovascular diseases, as your blood will be flowing more smoothly. It also reduces the chances of getting chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. You will have more energy and work will not feel so stressful. Exercise can also mean fewer sick days.

Workplace wellness programs don’t have to be a daunting thing to do. You can choose an activity that is fun like tennis, swimming or even basketball, to have a good workout. Simply taking a walk with some workmates during a break can be invigorating. You can also meet some interesting people and improve the way you work as a team. Now you see why workplace wellness programs encourage exercise, as the benefits are immense.
