Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.
Manpower is the key factor of productivity in the workplace. You need your staff to be at their best to attain peak efficiency. To help with making your employees strive while they are at their workplace, you need to have good harmony with your workers. Listen to what your staff has to say and try to cater to what they think would help make their jobs easier, and the best way to do that is to be open to their ideas.
Give your employees questionnaires every once in a while so that you can find out just how comfortable they are in working for your company. Ask if there’s anything they think the company can do to improve the work flow, efficiency or productivity in the workplace. Ask them if they think there is anything wrong or unnecessary that the organization can fix. Better yet, set up a suggestion box so that your employees can just throw in their ideas whenever a light bulb turns on in their minds.
You never know, some of their ideas can be really good, no matter how out of the box it is. Encouraging them to voice their opinions – and more importantly, following up on the good ones – also builds company loyalty that makes the employee feel that the company feels that they are valuable to the organization. This will always result in improved productivity in the workplace – for those that sent ideas and even for those who are benefiting from the ideas.
