    Ways You Can Increase Employee Productivity While Keeping Your Employees Happy

    We realize how much an owner worries about the statistics of his company – and, technically, he should because there’s probably no one else at that office that cares about the company more than he does. One of the most important things about running a company is to keep track of employees. Now, by keeping track of employees we don’t mean that you should pay special attention to decide who get the “Employee of the Month” award. It means keeping track of the work they do in how much time they stay at the office. An employee might be spending 8 hours at his or her office, and pretend like they’re working but they’re actually chatting with their high school sweetheart. For that reason alone, we’ve come up with a list of things that we think you can benefit from very much. So, without further ado, let’s start…

    Value Your Employees

    Everyone likes to be praised after a long day at work. No one would like to spend 8 hours at their cubicle and just get a little smile from their employer, they would like to be appreciated for the hard work they’re doing every single day. Well, this is exactly what an employer should do. He should admire the work that the employees do and try to be as encouraging as possible. It doesn’t matter that the employee’s work is not as good as you expected it to be, you shouldn’t be too discouraging because you could possible make them lose the motivation that they previously had, and end up with an employee who hates his/her job.

    Provide Them with a Productive Atmosphere

    An employer should be very picky about the building he chooses as his workspace, because the working environment is more important than people usually think. Imagine working in a really small office without any windows, where you can barely fit a desk and a chair, and then imagine working in an air conditioned office, where you could freely walk if you’re tired of sitting in a chair, maybe you even have a few windows and a view of the city, ask yourself, which of the two would you rather work in? Confined, dark places can really make a person cranky. So, our advice would be to provide the employees with some open space, and maybe some sunshine, it won’t hurt – well unless you’re a vampire, but sunshine could really help the employees feel more comfortable in their workspace and might even motivate them to work harder and longer than they usually do.

    Try To Delegate Tasks without Overworking Them

    As a business owner, you would probably want to work on all important projects yourself, you know the old saying “If you want something done, do it yourself”. However, in this case, that saying is totally wrong. If you don’t delegate some of your work, the employees will think less and less of their abilities, and might even start losing trust in their work. This is exactly what you don’t want to do, if you don’t think an employee won’t be able to do the work you need done, at least give them a chance, that will never hurt. Well, if you’re paranoid about saving time, and are worried that the employee will probably let you down, then ask someone else to do the work as well. This way you will be able to know the capabilities of your employees, without wasting any of their precious time.

    Give Them Some Time Off

    Anyone can talk a big game, some people can work constantly, and even show up to work on a Sunday, but the truth is most people can’t. Let’s talk about a company that is already at the height of success, that is, of course, Google. Google offices have a special room dedicated to arcade game like Pac-Man, which are available to employees anytime they feel like playing. Google certainly realizes the importance of giving employees time off, and you should too. Employers should pay special attention to make sure that they don’t overwork an employee because that would take away half of their working capability and they would end up providing substantial work, that you’re not happy with. Maybe throwing in a vacation every once in a while wouldn’t hurt too.
