There are so many great businesses in the Rochester area. Many of these companies have been struggling since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, but there are still things that can be done to end the year on a high note and increase productivity, worker happiness, and revenue for the future!
Here are some awesome tips for Roc business owners looking to improve their organization:
Let your employees work remotely
Remote work has become the norm since COVID-19, but there are still plenty of businesses that refuse to accept this new approach. About 60% of remote workers in the survey said that if they could, they would leave their current job for a full-time remote position at the same pay rate.
As long as your employees are continuing to get all their work done, are effectively communicating, and staying productive, let them work wherever they please! Some people do need an office setting to get things done, so let that be an option, but some people work best from their home, a coffee shop, or anywhere but the office!
Offer the opportunity for travel
Traveling for work can be great for employees to avoid burnout. The change of scenery can be extremely refreshing and will result in employees coming back feeling good and ready to increase their productivity. Approximately 1 billion U.S. passengers fly every year.
Additionally, simply put, people love traveling! If you can afford to send your employees to various new cities to meet with clients, give presentations, or work on special projects — do it! They will be very grateful for this awesome opportunity!
Take the design of your office seriously
If you don’t offer a remote working option, make sure your office isn’t bland, boring, and energy-draining. A plain white office with a few cubicles is not a great work environment. It’s boring and can even be depressing. Instead, get a little creative with your interior design!
Consider adding some nice art pieces. Roughly 94% of survey respondents believe that art makes their workplace more welcoming and that 61% agree it also stimulates creativity.
These tips are great but your business isn’t going to significantly increase its revenue overnight. This is going to take time — so make sure you’re putting the time in! Let your employees have a little more freedom, offer some travel options, and start improving the look and feel of your office. You won’t regret it!
