I developed a few strategies over the past few years to promote productivity within my employees. For instance, I start laying out expectations the minute someone signs up with my company. If someone fails to meet these expectations at any point during their employment- they are out. Done.
I also try to promote teamwork by having my employee review our mission statement and see if it could be made better. I strive for growth and having new employees assess old mission statements offers me a fresh perspective and gives the employee a sense of ownership- which increase productivity.
There is no ‘key’ to productivity and performance. I wish I had one. However, being clear about expectations and how you will measure performance is a great way to start. Including your employee in growth plans, such as mission statement reviews, will also help.
Until next time,
