Sharing is caring!
The more efficient your business is, the more money you will make – it really is that simple – which is why I’ve put together some of the best business hacks that will help you to boost efficiency going forward. Implement as many of them as you can if you want to boost your bottom line as much as you can.
Operate flexible working hours
You might think that letting your employees choose their working hours would make your business less, not more, efficient, but this is not the case. Studies have shown that employees who are allowed to work flexibly work more efficiently when they are clocked in than those who work set hours. In fact, they can be as much as 13 percent more productive, so you know it makes sense!
Invest in industrial cleaning
Sometimes, you have to speculate to accumulate, and industrial cleaning services is one area of business where this is the case. If you use industrial equipment, you will know that it can quite often slow down or malfunction when it is dirty or uncared for, which is why having professionals come in to clean it regularly is a must. It is also why you should service equipment regularly too.
Encourage greater teamwork
There is a lot to be said for employees who can get on with their work without any additional input, but there is no denying that teams who are able to integrate and work together, bouncing ideas off one another and seamlessly intermingling their own work to form a greater whole, can increase efficiency within the business. So, whatever you can do to increase teamwork, from team-building events to open-plan office space, is sure to help.
Yes, really. There are very few instances when a meeting really needs to be called. More often than not, you can pass on any important information via email or Slack and have everyone reply to let you know they’ve read it, thus freeing up tons of time throughout the year and enabling your employees to get on with the job they are so good at, rather than sitting in meetings where nothing much gets done at all.
Let there be pets
Numerous studies have shown that allowing pets into the office is a good way to boost productivity. The presence of pets not only boosts staff happiness levels, but it also helps to reduce stress and when both of these things happen, efficiency goes through the roof. It might sound strange to have dogs in the office, but if you want to be as productive as possible, letting pooches into the premises is not the worst idea you could implement.
Invest in automation
AI tools and automation is the future, but you can invest in it now, From automated accounting apps to artificially intelligent chatbots, the more automation your business invests in, the more money you will make.
As you can see, it’s actually really easy to boost your business efficiency, so get out there and make it happen!
