Five tips for an increased work productivity after the holidays

 
Scarica come PDF Often workers return from vacation with refreshed vitality. It’s important to hang onto that energy boost, so that it won’t be gone by the end of the first week of work. The restart after the holidays is the perfect time to structurally increase your staff’s productivity. The following tips will help you do this without any sense of extra workload on the part of your staff.

1. Make it possible to work everywhere
Flexible working is a rising phenomenon in Europe and the USA. A growing number of workers nowadays use Wi-Fi to work at home, on the train, and in other places. It helps to avoid unnecessary commuting and long waits in traffic tailbacks, all of which translate into valuable timesaving. An essential condition for making flexible working a success is for all staff to be able to log into everything at work and to consult any file from anywhere.

2. Make sure to set up well-appointed workplaces
A good workplace is indispensible in terms of a healthy body and mental concentration, irrespective of whether the employee is working at home or in the office. iPads are not suitable for typing a lot of text, so you need certain auxiliary aids. Our Pick Your Own Device (PYOD) concept makes it possible for your staff to create their own work sets consisting of tailor-made hardware with comfortable (ergonomic) accessories, such as keyboards, laptop stands, and so on. This results in a situation where employees can work anywhere with suitable equipment, which, once again, translates into more comfort and enhanced productivity.

3. Take regular and timely breaks

It’s often quite hard to take a break once you really get into the flow of things. The consequence of this is that your productivity will invariably start to fade by the end of the day. Moreover, working non-stop on your computer is not good for your health. Try to make sure that your personnel take regular short breaks once every hour or so and take time out for lunch. Efficiency software is a highly recommended tool when implementing this kind of work regime.

4. Check and answer your email at three set moments a day

Many employees leave their email inboxes open all day long. Continuously checking all incoming email consumes a lot of time and distracts workers from the other tasks at hand. Quit your mailbox and check your incoming email at set moments, three times a day, and then answer them immediately.

5. Create a (realistic) to do list at the beginning of the day
Start the day by writing down all the big tasks you need to start and finish every day. This promotes productivity. The Getting Things Done method is quite handy when it comes to making sure that the list is updated daily. You can use this method to clearly break projects down into tasks, and to ensure that you will be able to keep your focus on the required actions.
