There are small ways firms can improve productivity, such as employee recognition and incentive programs. However, companies can couple these initiatives with changing office behaviors.
One challenge to staff member productivity can generally be found in the weekly office meeting, which sometimes can be a repetition of directions communicated in previous conferences or discussions of events that have relatively little to do with those who are present.
Firms can fix these issues by choosing ahead of time who actually needs to be present at meetings as well as infusing it with companies' own personalities. Making meetings entertaining can help to improve information attention and overall performance.
"Meetings or otherwise, work and fun can co-exist and help build a very successful company," Pablo Palatnik, CEO of ShadesDaddy.com, told The Washington Post. "It's all about setting culture and letting employees be part of your company's vision and movement – that's from how the workplace looks to helping gather process/procedures."
Managers can also try having staff members run meetings. By putting workers in charge, employees can feel more empowered as well as inspired.
