No matter what size company you own or work for, productivity is probably a topic of discussion. It’s certainly an ongoing theme at our office, and a big reason why we developed our software– to help landscape, paving and snow removal contractors increase productivity during the sales and estimating process.
Although productivity is often discussed, solutions to increase productivity are all too often placed on the back burner…probably because of the time it will take to implement the next time saving, productivity-boosting solution. Sound familiar?
I found this great infographic that’s all about productivity pitfalls in the workplace. It has some interesting stats like 55% of employees relate their productivity directly to the software they use, and only 34% are using proven scheduling tools and techniques to help them gain more free time. For each issue that is presented, a solution is offered.
Great information and interesting nonetheless, but at the very bottom of this infographic lies the best part. A list of 5 things you can do to improve your productivity. It’s the best part because these five items are so basic, and if implemented will make our lives easier at the office and in the field…and we can all benefit from that!
