A recent article, 5 Ways to Increase Business Productivity by Steve Wilson says that running a business is overwhelming, thus increasing your team engagement and promoting their happiness will help you boost productivity and generate more revenue while using fewer resources.
Here’s what you need.
1. Automate and outsource
Most employees choose to spend their time working on their expertise and skillset as opposed to completing monotonous tasks, such as filling out numerous forms and documents. Automation software allows your employees to spend more time in their focus area. You can also hire a virtual receptionist to answer calls “live” in your company’s name, voicemail and call transfer to increase employee and company morale.
2. Promote a flexible work environment
Employee happiness and satisfaction is a key factor in productivity. People like having choices and autonomy, so provide it in the form of flextime, telecommuting options (e.g. allow them to work from home or in a virtual office space at least once a week) or simply offer more vacation time. This provides employees the freedom to choose how to be engaged and happy.
3. Implement workflow system
Implement an organization system to keep track employees responsibilities and workloads. For instance, you can book a meeting room once a week to help teams communicate regularly and effectively about long-term projects or goals. These meetings and discussions allow the team to both sync on responsibilities and collectively find ways to overcome any obstruction from completing business goals.
4. Promote employee advancement
Employees that fall into a monotonous routine will find themselves feeling unhappy, so support their personal and professional development through active learning, like workshops, seminars and team building activities. Offer opportunities for employees to develop personal hobbies or to take on new professional responsibilities.
