Boosting productivity in your business or company is a great way to enhance your bottom line and ultimately weather economic downturns to a large extent. So, you should constantly seek to boost productivity, with outsourcing and other result-oriented strategies.

In boosting business productivity, it is important that business leaders and owners create an enabling environment that aids employees in carrying out their tasks, which in turn aids in higher productivity.

Tip #1: Carry out Self Assessment as a Business Owner

As a business owner, the first step towards boosting productivity is to carry out self assessment. Examine your own work ethics, techniques and routines, to help you see whether or not you are productive. Consequently, you should adopt more result-oriented steps in your work, and pass it on to the rest of the people in your company.

Tip #2: Work with Deadlines

Working with deadlines is another great way to boost productivity. The deadline is not for you only, but for the rest of the people in your company, whether they are in-house employees or outsourcing partners. When you set deadline for open-ended tasks, it will motivate you and your employees to do more. Deadlines are great way to make people accountable in a workplace.

Tip #3: Give Room for Refreshment

In essence, you and your employees should take breaks on a regular basis. According to studies, going on short and intermittent breaks is a great way to maintain focus. It will also help bridge decline in performance. The break could be just a couple of minutes to look away from task and chat with colleagues or do other things that bring a bit of relief.

Also, when it comes to taking regular breaks, you should consider introducing a 90-minute interval schedule. Another research revealed that productivity will likely start to decline after 90 minutes. So, think of working in 4 to 5 ninety-minutes sessions, allowing breaks in-between.

Tip #4: Use Commute time to Reduce Your Workload

You can engage your commute time to boost productivity. For instance, when commuting, you can use the opportunity to complete tasks such as creating to-do lists, emailing, document review, and brainstorming. Indeed, your ‘bonus’ time can be engaged to boost productivity.

Tip #5: Adopt Outsourcing Solution

Outsourcing is also a great tool for enhancing productivity. Outsource employees tend to be more conscious of time, deadlines, and productivity than the in-house employees. So, you should outsource some tasks to boost productivity in a significant manner.

Finally, don’t delay in implementing these top tips to take productivity to another level in your business or company.
