Aspects to Improve that would Increase Employee Productivity



Typically as wedding planners, coordinators and interns we work at different hours and in different locations sometimes in the office, car, coffee shops, etc. It can vary from early mornings to late nights and weekends when clients are in town. 

Working 8 hours a day can be exhausting to anyone regardless of the kind of work one is doing. This is one of the reasons why over the years, companies have tried to experiment with changing workplace norms such as providing flexible working hours in hopes of increasing employee productivity.

However, time is not the only factor that affects an employee's performance. Both tangible and intangible aspects of the working environment can determine whether or not an employee will be able to work well for the day or not. Understanding and making necessary changes to these aspects will have an effect on your company's productivity.

Have a conducive workspace

Buying office furniture in Salt Lake City to improve your overall office look and ergonomics might seem like a luxurious expense. But studies have shown that employees thrive better if their workspaces are comfortable. Providing your employees ergonomic chairs and tables will affect not just their health, but also their overall performance. Also, letting natural light in will not only help you save up on power bills but also help boost people's moods. Arranging the office in such a way that employees can have their own privacy when working, while at the same time have common spaces to grow, mingle, and share ideas, is a balance that every office space can benefit from.

Tap into your employees' motivational side

Aside from the physical changes that can be done to increase productivity, getting into your employees' personal side is also important. A regular reward system or a simple recognition can have a huge impact on one's attitude towards work. Being appreciated for the hard work that they are putting in the company will affect employees positively in ways you may not have anticipated.

Implement rules that will improve productivity

Like other thriving businesses, a balance between discipline and fun should be made. Implementing strict rules that can help guide employees align with the company and its goals is important. Regular meetings can serve as a good reminder. So is putting surveillance in the office. This can help employees understand that there is a time for work, fun, relaxation, and even growth.

Be open to change

A relationship is always a two-way street. This also goes true with an employer-employee one. As an employer, you might have the authority in implementing rules, regulations, and letting your people know your concerns and the things that you want to be done in the company. However, having a listening ear towards the plight, opinions, and concerns of your employees is also as important. If an employee feels that their concerns and their opinions matter and are heard, then putting in more effort in the things they do will naturally follow. Getting regular feedback on how the company is faring, and how it can be improved, is very important in your quest for increased productivity.

Increased productivity and efficiency is not something that can happen overnight, nor is it something that can be done by a single person. By functioning as a whole, attaining your goals and improving your company is something that can be done.
