Staff productivity at work – Five ideas on how to increase it


Most employers struggle with creating an engaging workplace where employee productivity, performance, and motivation never falter. However, there are some easy ways to increase staff performance and productivity without compromising the employees’ mental wellbeing. You will find everything just a few clicks away in a system provided by Remente.

What is the difference between productivity and efficiency? 

Sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish productivity from efficiency. They both go hand in hand but productivity measures the output quantity, while efficiency measures the performance of the output produced. 

Increase staff productivity ー a real challenge

All business leaders face the same challenge ー how to improve staff productivity in order for the company to be more competitive but without risking the mental well-being of the employees? It is a tough nut to crack but the way forward you choose will have a great impact on your company’s future.

Here are five ideas on how to increase staff motivation and productivity:

  • Measure employee efficiency.

    By measuring efficiency you will be able to recognize outstanding performances to be rewarded, and offer guidance to those who have the potential to perform better. Remente offers a system making it possible to both measure staff productivity and increase mental wellness among your employees. By collecting data from anonymous surveys sent out to your staff, we can provide you with real-time data on the productivity and mental wellbeing of your staff. This will help you make informed decisions on the company’s way forward.

  • Set up realistic expectations and goals for your employees

    By looking at their past performance data you will get an idea of what they are capable of and what goals you need to set for them to develop further. In the Remente app, your staff will be able to set up goals, break them down to interim goals and check them off the list as the goals are completed. Using our app is a great way for your employees to get an overview of the goals and to see the progress they have made to keep up staff motivation and productivity.

  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of your employees.

    Identifying strengths and weaknesses is the secret to unlocking the potential of every employee. The information enables you to make well-founded decisions about tasks and ensures that every employee can thrive within the company. If you are aware of the strengths and weaknesses of your employees you can delegate tasks accordingly, make use of their strengths and provide support where it’s needed. One way to get to know your employees better is to talk openly about strengths and weaknesses. Start by bringing out your own weakness in the open to create an honest discussion.

  • Focus on wellbeing.

    Happy employees are more productive (and create a more enjoyable work environment). Make sure mental and physical health is a top priority at the workplace by encouraging your staff to learn more about mindfulness, stress management, and how to eat healthier. Remente offers a wide range of courses, step-by-step Goal Plans, and daily coaching to help increase the employees’ wellbeing. A mood journal and a life wheel enable your employees to track their wellbeing over time and get a visual representation of their life balance are examples of other useful tools offered by Remente.

  • Allow remote work.

    An American study based on 1000 employees showed that remote work can improve staff productivity by up to 13 percent if the employees work from home one day a week. According to the study, the employees had fewer distractions at home, took shorter lunch breaks, and the company had fewer employees called in sick. Allowing remote work also plays an important part in work-life integration. As opposed to work-life balance, Work-life integration is about bringing work and life together. Work-life integration focuses on when is the best time to do tasks to be more productive and live a more fulfilling life. That could mean starting working later in the day to be able to focus on a personal project or to answer emails after hours.
