Anybody that has ever worked in an office will tell you that those eight hours a day are not always spent in the most productive of ways. Some of you may well spend all day working hard, but you probably know plenty of people that don’t. There are so many distractions these days and it can be difficult to stop people from wasting time on their phones or online. For an employer, this is a big problem because you are effectively paying people to do nothing and even if it’s only for a small amount of time each day, that all adds up over the year. It won’t make you the most popular boss in the world but putting in measures to increase productivity is the best thing for your business. Here are a few ways that you can do it.
Don’t Pile Too Much Work On
Lack of productivity isn’t always the fault of your employees. One of the reasons that they might be lacking focus is because they have too much work piled on. If you are getting your employees to do extra work on top of their normal duties then it is harder for them to concentrate on their main work. Use contract office cleaning services instead of having your employees do it themselves, and make sure that you have admin staff that can deal with the tasks that often cause things to clog up. That way, everybody can deal with one specific job and do it properly, rather than spreading themselves too thin.
