Positive relationships between staff, teams and managers are a feature of productive workplaces. A positive work environment motivates staff and helps them commit to the organisation. Staff feel encouraged to 'go the extra mile'.
There are two main approaches to workplace productivity:
- creating the right environment with your employees to increase employee productivity. This includes building strong relationships with your staff, developing work-life balance and flexible work policies, encouraging learning and development, and growing your leadership capability
- reviewing and improving your systems and processes, use of technology and measuring what matters.
