Extensive research by the iOpener Institute for People and Performance concludes that â€œEmployees who are the most productive are also the happiest at work.â€1 In tough economic times, every business has to look at ways to cut costs. But fewer companies look at the other side of the equation: Productivity. If your staff could be 10 percent more productive, youâ€™d automatically improve your profitability. Managing motivation and tackling teamwork are important for boosting motivation; however, IT is also a big stumbling block to productivity.
Whether itâ€™s the quality of tools employees have to work with, ease of access to information, or a helpful nudge away from distractions, technology can play a big part in enhancing employee productivity.
