Ways to Increase Office Productivity

Ways to Increase Office Productivity

Every company wants to be efficient, successful, and profitable. There are many methods you can use to achieve these goals, and employee productivity is a huge factor in it’s success. If your employees aren’t operating at their best, then neither is the whole company. It is also important to understand that employees can only be as productive as their environment. If you micromanage them and reprimand them for every mistake this will not only decrease productivity but also have a negative impact on employee morale.

Here are a few ways you can increase productivity throughout your office:

Offer perks– In a survey conducted by Gallup Poll, 4 in 10 Americans believe they are underpaid. While you may not be able to give your whole office an increase in pay, adding incentives will help supplement this. Some of these perks can include:

  • Paid sick days
  • Gym membership
  • Bonuses
  • Free branded items- t-shits, mugs etc.
  • Work from home options

Music– Many people find it difficult to focus in a noisy office environment or one that is too quiet. Consider offering a music subscription service or installing a system which will allow music to play through the office. You can have employees add their favorite artists or songs to give everyone a chance to listen to the songs they enjoy. Studies show that listening to music helps to release chemicals in the brain like dopamine and serotonin which helps us relax, therefore helping employees work better.

Office Renovation– Does your office have old outdated furniture? If so, this is hurting your productivity. By providing fresh alternatives to the mundane office furniture your employees will be much more excited to come to work. Ensuring that their desks and chairs are ergonomically aligned will make a hug difference. Check out Accent Office Interiors for productivity increasing office solutions.
