How to boost office productivity

When it comes to office productivity, you’ll want to make sure your workforce remains motivated throughout their working day.

It’s incredibly important to keep your staff motivated and morale high when it comes to productivity.

There are a number of solutions when it comes to boosting productivity, but here at FIS Property Advice, we’re taking a look at just a few ways in which productivity can be increased. Here are three great ways to boost office productivity:

1. Take regular breaks

Taking regular breaks will significantly enhance your work performance.

According to a 2014 study: the ideal break should be 17 minutes

Be it a walk to get a coffee or to chat with other co-workers, implementing these small breaks is proven to reduce the negative health effects of sitting for too long.

Regular breaks also reduce stress and therefore help to clear your mind.  You can find more information here.

2. Set goals for each hour

Setting goals for each our will enable you to keep motivated as you’ll be able to keep track of how much you’ve done and still need to do.

This is effective and efficient because you will be more aware of the approaching deadline.

It is important to note that you should make these deadlines realistic so if you need more than an hour, that is perfectly fine!

3. Good office spaces improve productivity

The kind of office you have directly affects the productivity of employees.

If you have a crowded office space, with a lack of up-to-date technology and little to no additional facilities, productivity is likely to be hindered as workers will often have problems with their devices or are just stressed by the overcrowding of their office space.

One way you can improve the productivity of your office is to rent out office space.

Good office spaces have additional facilities for employees to take breaks, such as kitchens, and outdoor areas.

If your office is too small to add places for workers to ‘de-stress’ you should consider renting a new office space or co-working spaces that offer these facilities all in one.

4. Prioritise the important tasks when you are more focused

There is absolutely no point in doing a task when you aren’t fully focused. Your thought process will be slower and this will hinder your creativity.

It has even been proven that you should save the important tasks for when you are most focused.

You may be a morning person; driving headfirst into your biggest task of the day. But remember, everyone is different, only you know how you work best.
