What helps boost a company’s productivity? Undoubtedly, employees’ enthusiasm is one factor. Your business won’t do well if its people are disgruntled and dissatisfied. However, it doesn’t end there, for your employees also need the right tools to do their jobs well. And in this case, it’s the employer’s responsibility to make sure its people are well-equipped to do the tasks at hand.
I recall having worked for an IT firm before that did not mind having its staff use old, dilapidated computers. What was the effect? Work was done at a slow pace, since the managers and technical personnel weren’t satisfied with their equipment. After all, being programmers and graphic designers, they need fast and powerful computers to accomplish their work well.
It’s a matter of the bottomline. One should be willing to take on larger upfront costs if it meant having a resource-efficient company. And if you’re planning to start a company, don’t scrimp on quality!
