Technical difficulties seem to happen during the most crucial times, and having a dedicated team that can service your machines quickly will drastically reduce the time lost when issues arise.
Implement “No Meeting Wednesdays”
Collaboration between employees and different teams is important, but sometimes frequent meetings can prevent employees from dedicating the extended time that is needed to complete big tasks and projects. This can negatively impact creativity. Implementing one day a week, such as “no meeting Wednesdays” when no meetings take place can allow employees one day to block off large portions of time for work. Try out no meeting Wednesdays and you will be surprised to see the boost of productivity in your office.
Invest in an MFP
Are you familiar with multifunctional printers? MFPs are different from normal printers because they contain the functionality of multiple machines. They can print, copy, scan and fax. If it’s time for you to upgrade your printer, consider a multifunctional printer. There are many reasons to invest in an MFP, and their ability to improve office efficiency is one of them. With an MFP, all office machines can be located in one section of the building, eliminating the time it takes for employees to walk around the office to use separate machines. Also, they are easy to use, even for people just learning. Their ease of use will save the time that is often spent training employees, and the time that is wasted when employees struggle to use outdated, inefficient machines.
Offer More Company Perks
Happy employees are productive employees. Perks such as delicious office treats, company outings, and in-office games and competitions will help employees feel motivated as they realize what a great company they are a part of. Also consider offering employees a few paid volunteer days per year. Giving employees the time and ability to impact the community at an organization of their choice will certainly boost their motivation in the office as they reevaluate the impact that their everyday work has on society.
