You can achieve even higher productivity with your employees if you know how to. Keep reading to learn the secrets that work to boost productivity among your employees.

Tip #1: Offer Expert Productivity Boosting Techniques

As a business owner or manager, you can offer your own productivity boosting techniques to your outsourcing contractors and in-house employees. Some of those productivity boosting techniques would include the following;

  • Encourage relaxation: You should be the one to encourage your employees to take breaks. In fact, you should create the breaks yourself by employing tactics such as coming up with weekly group activities and suggestions, organizing team lunches, and celebrating birthdays.
  • Set deadlines: Whether your freelancers are working on open-ended projects or long-term projects, you will motivate them to work more by creating targets and deadlines they should meet. You may also attach some form of incentive to meeting deadlines.

Tip #2: Give Room for Remote Work and Flexible Schedules

Remote working has become an increasingly in-thing in the business arena because of its high success rate. This is simply the use of outsourcing solution to get tasks done. According to a research, employees who work from remote locations stay longer hours on work and are more engaged.

Working remotely also applies to full-time employees, as long as they have the necessary tools and materials to accomplish the assigned tasks from their remote locations. Introducing such flexibility to work from their chosen location can help motivate them and boost productivity.  However, you have to set guidelines and polices for such flexibilities to prevent laxity.

Tip #3: Use Work Teams

Also, working in teams can be a great way to boost productivity, since it gives room for different points of view. Also, workers tend to be more conscientious because they won’t want their team to perform less or poorly. Team work is also a great tool that helps prevent possible isolation that may create a feeling of being unimportant in some workers.

Tip #4: Appreciate Your Employees

Employees, whether outsourcing contractors or full time employees would be motivated and become more productive when you show appreciation to them. You should appreciate well-performing employees publicly in the course of meetings.

Some of the practical ways to get this done is to offer awards on the spot, and to profile well-performing workers and their achievements in company publications. This will not only motivate the appreciated employees to do more, but will also encourage others to perform optimally.
