How to Help Your Employees be Productive

Do you feel like you and your staff are in a rut and not getting enough done during the workday? If projects are piling up on everyone’s desks, then it’s time to take action to create a productive workplace. The tips in this post will show you how to do just that and get back into the swing of things.

Distraction-Free Work Place

If you want your employees to be as productive as possible, then you need to eliminate as many distractions as you can. Some of them will be in your court, like limiting the number of emails you send out during the day, keeping workplace interruptions to a minimum, and no longer requesting your employees to multi-task. The other distractions will need to be handled by your employees and they include staying off of cell phones and making sure not to work on an empty stomach.

My Door Is Always Open

You can prevent small problems from escalating into big problems if you maintain an open-door policy. If your employees know they can talk to you about their concerns, they won’t waste their time trying to fix them. Think about how much time can be saved if they know they can come to you to figure out the solution to a project they’re working on or just to talk about something that’s bothering them. The more you show you care, the more your employees will show you how much they can accomplish.

Praise and Feedback

Your employees need both encouragement and direction through direct praise and feedback from you. Your personal praise will make them feel good about themselves and your feedback will help them improve the way they work. Both of these are needed for a productive workplace. At the end of the day, everyone wants to feel appreciated, so don’t keep your compliments to yourself. People also want to know that you care enough about them to help them grow, so give your feedback when necessary, but frame it in a positive light.

Accountability Across the Board

Accountability is absolutely necessary if you want to ramp up the productivity in your office. One of the ways to do this is to have weekly meetings with your staff that outline project deadlines. Follow up these meetings with emails that clearly show the deadlines for each project. Another form of accountability has everything to do with you. The work-life balance of your staff needs to be prioritized if you want everyone to be productive. The way to keep yourself accountable for this is limiting the number of times you ask your employees to stay late or bring their work home. Simply ask yourself if it can wait.
