Employees are the pillars of a company. If employees don’t deliver up to your expectation, the overall performance of the business will start to decline. But how would you know if performance from the employees is okay? For that you need to conduct productivity review sessions on a frequent basis, ideally once in every week. Also, prepare a questionnaire and ask questions to employees. The resulting interaction would increase their productivity level.
Let’s face it; you can’t be too harsh on employees, you can’t be too soft to them either. Better to show them a balanced attitude. Follow the hierarchy, call project manager first and take input from him. Then meet group leaders and discuss with them company matters and how individual departments are functioning. Show them a balanced attitude and you will see they are cooperating with you. If their performance is good, give rewards, if not, encourage them to do better.
Laidback attitude among the employees could hamper a business’s growth. Furthermore, the management might at times be sloppy. To get up to the speed, you need to take a do-it-now approach. After the initial blueprint is prepared and a plan is chalked out, detail the priorities of a project and work on them without wasting time. This do-it-now approach will save valuable time.
This is perhaps the most pertinent of all. Employers often believe training is optional. Well, it’s not. Training is important for all employees regardless of which post he holds. A recent survey done by industrial psychologists shows training given by a company helps new employees familiarize with the company environment and understand the job role better.
The tips above are important no doubt. But they are not all. If you are creative, you can invent new tips to increase the company’s level of productivity and better handle human resources.
