Did you know that Tuesday is the most productive day of the week and that employees with a high workload are less productive? If you’re looking for ways to boost your business’s productivity levels, here the team at Indigo8 Corporate Services share their tips with you.
Get together – it’s a fact that teams who communicate and collaborate on a regular basis increase productivity by 20-25%. So, whether you have a quick informal chat over a coffee or you gather the entire crew in the boardroom, encouraging your team to start conversations and get the ideas flowing is great for productivity.
Four-legged friends – according to research, pets in the workplace make employees happier and reduce stress levels which ultimately promotes productivity! The team at Indigo8 is pro-pets and agree that our furry friends help us to be our best at work. Every now and then, we welcome pets in the office.
Music to your ears – if you step behind the scenes at Indigo8, you’ll notice that some of the crew listen to music while they work. That’s because it makes us more productive and this has been proven – scientists say listening to music you enjoy releases a chemical called dopamine which helps transmits signals in the brain, thus making you more productive.
Outsource it – if you’re a business leader, then you know it’s impossible to do everything alone. If you don’t have the time, expertise, or you need to control expenses or improve productivity, outsourcing components of your business is a wise move. This is something the team at Indigo8 Corporate Services can assist you with.
Work in 90-minute intervals – did you know that everyone has an ultradian rhythm? The human body operates in cycles of 90 minutes whether we’re awake or asleep. Our alertness moves from high to low throughout the day, and when we reach the low end of the cycle, this is our body telling us to take a break, but most of us in the professional world ignore these signs. While taking breaks may sound counterintuitive, when it comes to increasing productivity, it’s one of the best ways to get more done.
