What’s the key to company productivity? Is it efficiency? Is it cost savings? Is it the employees? If your guess is the third choice, then I agree with you. Most of the time, employee productivity is the most influential factor in a company’s total performance.
Since employee productivity is directly related to how enthusiastic a company’s workforce is, we see the importance of strong human resource departments, or in the case of small businesses, good relations between owner/manager and staff. While it is tempting to dismiss the thought of employees’ enjoyment while at the workplace, this might ultimately lead to business downfall. Imagine work slowing to a snail’s pace with disgruntled and uninspired workers.
Here’s advice for startup companies: outline your HR plan ahead of time. Along with the most essential of business strategies is making sure your company’s operations run smoothly—and that means having an efficient, inspired, and productive workforce, among others.
