To understand your employees and their productivity level, you have to first put yourself in their shoes. As a boss, you have to figure out what distracts and holds your employees back. It could be personal issues, social media, mobile devices, or office environment factors.
Whatever it is, now you come to know that distraction is present in and around your business. What you are going to do about them? Even though you are a kind of person who is running off your feet round the clock, if your employees are not happy or productive, nothing else will work. Only if your employees are functional and effective, everything else falls into place.
Here are some helpful tips to maximize productivity.
This is one of the traditional strategies to maximize productivity. If you want to grab the attention of your employees, bring incentive scheme that rewards productivity with financial incentives. Creating a healthy competition among employees by offering incentives will increase productivity in the workplace. This means the employees will perform more than the next individual to achieve their organizational goals. When looking at the bigger picture, the company will benefit in the end. When employees earn more incentives every month, they would deny offer from other companies and show loyalty even though the offer maybe more attractive than what you are offering them.
This is popularly known as “BYOD.” Currently, BYOD is a hot topic in the corporate world. Few organizations are still struggling to understand the concept of BYOD. When you adopt BYOD strategy, you can see the increase in the productivity. Several organizations see boosts in employee productivity and customer response time by allowing employees bring their own devices to work.
According to a new study by Dell Software, “More than half of companies feel they would be at a competitive disadvantage without BYOD.”
In the above-mentioned study, it was found that 64% of respondents believe that BYOD will only deliver benefits if the specific needs and rights of each user are understood.
