3 Ways to Improve Business Productivity

Organizations producing and delivering services now employ more people than firms producing tangible “goods”. Staff represent the largest cost in many organizations and labour productivity can have a direct affect on competitiveness. It’s your productivity that allows you to increase revenue year over year. It’s your productivity that can improve profit. So how do you improve productivity to increase these margins?

By Practice

Most productivity improvements are based on employees doing more work in less time. There are several ways to do this:

  • Create an atmosphere of positive attitudes
  • Encourage a healthy lifestyle
  • Urge for fewer distractions
  • Support time management initiatives
  • Effective training

By Strategy

Being strategic in your productivity improvement might involve spending less, saving money or improving processes. It may widen your circle to include some of the following:

  • Outsourcing
  • Quality Circles – peer groups designed to identify improvements in work processes
  • Reduction of waste
  • Collaborate across departments

By Technology

Technology is often implemented to improve how you run your business and maximize productivity. It encompasses not just machinery, but also software as it provides tools to overcome challenges. The benefits of improved software is not just automation, but faster communication and ease of access to information and team members allow for more time spent on strategic priorities.
