As an organization, there are days where things just hit rock bottom and productivity in the workplace is nonexistent. As a result, the morale in the office might get low. Seeing that things have reached their worst, being quiet about the situation until it changes will not help the office atmosphere, let alone the productivity. It is therefore important during these times to meet daily in the workplace so that you can share with the employees what management is doing in order to improve the situation and make things right for them. This allows your employees to relate with the progress you are making and as a result, this will spark some level of motivation in them.
Listen to Employees
Sometimes, though most managers might not want to hear this, you can change around the Monday schedule and allow the employees to start work a bit late so that they can be focused for the week. It is no secret that Mondays are a drag. When you allow them to come in late, it increases their levels of focus and this will translate to an increase in the productivity in the workplace. Lastly, always let the employees have a say. Nothing kills an organization more than management that doesn’t know what the workforce’s opinion is on whatever is going on. When you let them talk freely, feeling as if they will be listened to, they know that they are a necessary part of something and this will help productivity in the workplace.
