Research says that the human brain cannot concentrate on a matter even for a single minute. And then there is an entire day that an employee needs to spend doing similar tasks at the office. In order to see that the employees can concentrate on work and enjoy at the same time, certain measures should be taken. You need to remember that productivity is great when you enjoy what you do.
Good employers believe that employees are their greatest assets. So, they work towards ensuring that their team and other employees are happy and satisfied with the office environment. Pushing the employees too far would only lead to poor quality product and unhappy employees. If you as an employer look forward to retain your employees for a long period of time, here is how you can do it:
- Having a Games Area
A recent survey in America showed that employees of that nation take the least day offs. This is because of the heavy work load and an ambition to reach to the top of the ladder in a real quick time. This however is not good for the employees or the company. So, one of the ways to bring about a change in these employees is that they can be allowed small breaks in between work. A brilliant way of doing it would be to develop a games area where they can have a bit of fun and relax as well. A pool table or a carom board can be an amazing option.
An employee spends most of his/her time in the office. So, don’t you think he/she needs to love the place they work in? Would it not be a great idea to creatively decorate the place in such a way that it is not only attractive but also productive? Your office itself is the reflection of your brand. It should be a place that suggests your clients about the quality of work you do. They should feel like they want to work with you. This will further lead not only to employee satisfaction but also towards the benefit of the company.
- Celebrating big and small occasions
