Your employees are on the front lines of your organization. Without them, your company would never be able to grow and thrive.
If your employees aren’t productive, your company can’t provide the experience your customers expect. So if you want to invest in your customers, you have to be prepared to invest in your employees.
Here are three ways that you can improve employee productivity in real-time.
#1 – Reduce Distractions
The best place to start improving your workplace productivity is to reduce distractions.
Unless you happen to work with state secrets, a no-phone policy isn’t going to work. Nonetheless, phones in general and social media in particular are a guaranteed way to while away valuable work hours.
Unfortunately, sometimes, your processes are just as distracting as social media. If your processes are inefficient and sloppy, it is a distraction in its own right. Instead of focusing on their jobs, they have to take unnecessary detours.
If you want to eliminate distractions, you have to be deliberate. When it comes to phones, give employees the chance to have breaks so that they can refresh and focus. When it comes to your processes, it’s time to invest in something better.
#2 – Give Them Independence
It all comes down to respecting your employees.
And one way to give them that respect is to give them enough dignity to be entrusted with independence.
Now, as an employer, it is difficult to be laissez-faire about your employees. You want to ensure that your employees are upholding a level of quality that represents the best of your company.
Fortunately, there is a way to balance both.
When your processes are revised and sharpened such that your employees can rely on the same process to deliver results every time, management has an easier time tracking results and showing ROI. You do that by investing in the right tools.
#3 – Equip Your Team with the Right Tools
At the end of the day, your team cannot work effectively if they don’t have the right tools for the job. It doesn’t matter how many distractions you eliminate or how good your employee engagement is.
If you’re spending money on software that your team isn’t using, burning through your budget without seeing results, and losing leads when they go to your channel partners, the simple fact is that your tools aren’t working for you.
You need tools that make your team’s jobs easier. You need tools that simplify your processes and consolidate your processes. You need tools that make it possible to do your job.
