Let’s face it, most businesses are created primarily for the purpose of earning money or making a profit. To do this a business needs to have maximum sales, low costs and work like a well-oiled machine.
If a business has good productivity or even maximum potential productivity that means it will enable it to reach, it’s full profit potential. By increasing sales, this will enable the business to have more products and reduces costs as well by lessening payroll.
For a lot of businesses, a large proportion of their takings is spent on payroll so by increasing productivity you can save money. However, this is not solely down to the level or productivity of the workers but can also be down to the operations the business has in place.
Reviewing processes for production right down to the process of replying to an email can help free up a lot of lost time and again increase profits and productivity by decreasing downtime.
Aside from the financial benefits of productivity, there is also the aspect of saving time. By increasing the productivity of a business and its staff, this frees up more time for staff to work in other areas that have perhaps been neglected due to time constraints. This can then lead to the business as a whole working much smoother and also can lead to the overall creation of a higher quality product.
If you’re a one-man band trying to do it all, again this is counter-productive and could have a knock-on effect on the business. It might be an idea to consider hiring a virtual assistant to take off some of the administrative load that you don’t need to be doing yourself.
A productive workplace also allows you to build on and improve your relationships with your customers by completing projects on time or even early. This will also help you create repeat customers and trigger word-of-mouth marketing which is of course the best kind.
Creating the impression that your company is well run, builds your reputation and attracts new customers and this all stems from having good productivity.
