When your employees wake up in the morning, what's the general feeling that comes over them? One of excitement, or one of dread?
Research shows that nearly 75% of employees in the United States today are actively looking for new jobs. And many don't feel that their employers are giving them the recognition they truly deserve.
This may not seem like a big deal in the scheme of things. After all, you have "more important" things to worry about -- like meeting sales goals and staying ahead of the competition in the area of technology -- right?
The reality, though, is that your company' employee morale has a major impact on your reputation and bottom line. So, how do you increase your employees' productivity and build a company culture that thrives? Here's a rundown on five tips for helping your employees and, in turn, helping your business in 2019.
Let's jump in!
1. Improve Employees' Productivity By Building Trust
Establishing trust among your workers is critical for fostering communication and transparency.
By giving your employees relevant information and being transparent with them, you make them feel involved in your organization. And this will make them feel more committed to it.
Also, the more that you all communicate, the more aligned your employees will be with your management team. As a result, you can all work together toward a common aim.
2. Call for Employee Responsibility
Encourage your employees to think for themselves and to feel a sense of accountability for their actions and decisions. This means avoiding micromanagement.
Also, to maximize your productivity, you need to let your workers develop and pitch ideas that may help your organization to achieve its objectives.
The more that you call for employees to be responsible for the work they do, the more likely they are to work cautiously and meticulously. The result will be well-thought-out employee decisions and open-mindedness when doing specific jobs.
3. Provide Training
Be sure to also train your workers.
This will help them to magnify their strengths so that they can keep advancing in their skill sets. It'll also save you time, as you won't have to go back and fix things that they did incorrectly.
4. Promote Fun at Work
Make your workplace a fun place to work. That means encouraging their ideas, as well as funding their unique innovations.
In addition, don't be afraid to reward them. For instance, offer to pay their parking costs for a certain period of time if they're using a pay lot/garage. Pay lots/garages are becoming easier to operate today thanks to the popularity of automated parking systems by companies like ParkingBoxx.
Give your employees generous incentives to show them that you appreciate their work.
5. Maximize Technology
You can maximize technology in a couple of ways.
First, embrace telecommuting. If your employees are productive and happy when working in other places other than your office, let them.
Research shows that working from home can give employees a productivity boost equivalent to working a fully day. That's partly because workers often find it easier to focus at home.
