5 Ways to Improve Workplace Efficiency

Workplace efficiency means getting work done with the least amount of time and effort wasted. While many factors can contribute to or hamper efficiency, implementing a few key changes can increase productivity, improve workplace efficiency, employee satisfaction, and overall workplace culture.
Even if you’re working remotely, you can adapt many of these tips to a home-office operation. Here are five ways to help you improve workplace efficiency.

How to Improve Workplace Efficiency

Start with the Workplace

A positive working environment directly influences employees’ productivity and efficiency, so it may be time for a workplace makeover.

•    Cover those drab white or gray walls with a coat of productivity-boosting color such as red, blue, yellow, or green. Find the right shade and intensity to strike a balance between muted and overwhelming.

•    Keep the office comfortable, not too cold, and not too hot—between 68- and 70-degrees F is optimal. Extreme temperatures can be distracting.

•    Replace traditional furniture with ergonomically correct chairs and desks. Employees can’t be expected to be efficient if they are in pain from hunching over their desks.

•    Update computers, software, and other equipment. Outdated office devices and software slow down production and frustrate workers. Hire an IT consultant or channel partner to help modernize your systems. Download File PDF
