How To Improve Your Office’s Productivity Levels

Over the years, companies have grappled with drops in productivity in a variety of different ways. Some bosses will argue that if you want to get the best out of your employees, it is important to be harsh with them. Others believe that by creating a positive work environment, the results will continue to be ones that are to your liking. Here at The Bradfield Centre, we have established ourselves as a hub that can handle businesses of all sizes. Allow us to use our experience to guide you on some of the effective methods that you could potentially put into practice.

Implement Breaks

No matter how much you wish it were so, the reality of the situation is that there will come a point in the day during which your employee’s energy levels will become depleted. Though you could opt to have them continue working, we believe that this is counter-productive. Instead, it may be wise if you implement a daily break. During this, your team will be free to unwind, if only for a short while. When they subsequently come back to their tasks, they will be energised and ready to tackle the problems that were previously vexing them.

Delegate Responsibilities

Understandably, you will have worked long-and-hard to establish a chain of command within your place of work, and this is something that should be respected. That being said, there is nothing wrong with delegating responsibilities to some of your more-trustworthy employees, even if they rank slightly lower than others. By demonstrating that you have faith in those within your team, you can help them to flourish into individuals that will strive to prove their worth, thereby improving their productivity.

Engage With Your Team

You will never truly know how your employees feel unless you talk to them on a regular basis. It does not matter if some of your team operate from home, or if you remain traditional and have everyone in the office each-and-every day - for your workforce to be a cohesive unit, they need to feel as if you care for their wellbeing. We are sure that you would be amazed at the impact that a quick chat can have. This allows them to air any grievances that they might have about the current state of the business, which could potentially lead to meaningful changes.

Be Kind With Incentives

In truth, you cannot expect your employees to work tirelessly five days a week, only to be greeted at the end of a month with a pitiful pay cheque that does little more than cover the basic bills and other living expenditures. As such, it is up to you to try and incentivise your workforce in other ways. Case-and-point, if your employees are primarily tasked with selling products or services, you could create a leaderboard - the knock-on effect of this is that you can breed a healthy amount of competitiveness.
