Raise Productivity When it’s Difficult to Hire New Workers

Productivity Month – June

Flexicrew chose June as a month to raise productivity.

Why?

Business owners, operations managers and HR professionals voice the same complaint to us. They have a lot of available jobs but can’t find workers to hire.

10 Productivity Tips for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

One way to soften the sting of this problem is to raise productivity in their current workforce.

Raise Productivity in Current Workforce

Flexicrew has written a series of articles on boosting productivity during June  and will continue to do so through the end of this month.  We provide you a guide to increase your monthly productivity, to achieve greater performance, and great results.  Our blog contains proven steps and suggestions for how to be a more productive worker  by performing a series of activities daily. With the help of this blog, we will focus you on increasing employee engagement, getting better performance from current staff and building employee retention.

We will provide recommendations that will surely motivate you to become a more productive worker.

Make sure that you take note of your progress by keeping a notebook on hand. Write in your notebook after you have started or completed activities.  At the end of the month  you’ll see some results that raise productivity. You see, if you focus on important activities, you won’t feel like being productive is overwhelming and that it cannot be done. This blog will help you realize that focusing on productivity will naturally pay dividends at work and even in your satisfaction.

Habits and the Mind

We are shaped by our habits.  Useful and harmful ones fight each other for command of our minds. By discipline and willpower alone it’s possible to unlearn useless habits and change your behavior.

The key is persistence. Often you will need many months to see the results, so don’t surrender early.

By watching your mind regularly, you can start noticing recurrent patterns.  But the core idea is that you can adapt your workflow to these states instead of resisting them.

Procrastination

Procrastination itself can have different causes — maybe the task is too complex or too boring, fear of failure or simple laziness. Even a slight presence of these negative factors can make us go for instant rewards instead of doing something that will create a better future in the long term.

Avoiding work is similar — these are just the thoughts of what you don’t like about your tasks and what you would rather do. But you are not your thoughts, and they have no power over you until you feed them with attention. You can ignore them like a background noise by keeping your focus on your goals.

Summary

As we begin to enter the last phase, now is a great opportunity to start to implement good work habits or redouble your commitment  to maximize your productivity and return to business with greater focus than ever.

Finally, to raise your productivity, at the end of each day, ask yourself the following:

  1. Have I accomplished what I wanted to achieve?
  2. Did I actually have  to be present for meeting or event I attended?
  3. Could I have reached the same result in a shorter time frame?

This is a powerful approach to determine if you are really managing and spending your time wisely and raising productivity.
