7 Key Secrets To Increasing Productivity

What most business owners and bosses want out of their staff is high levels of productivity and many of them will do what they must to ensure that this happens. Many have opted for increased pay as their main way to achieve that goal but as has been shown, increased pay does not for the most part translate into greater productivity. Luckily there are other ways to achieve that goal, some of which are not well known. At almost breath-taking pace, medical science is discovering new insights in human biology. Used the right way, much of this new knowledge can help managers heighten workers’ job satisfaction and increase their own productivity.

Light and color secrets

Researchers have found that light has a profound effect on our bodies. Though not completely understood, the reason is probably linked to the effect light has on two vital areas of the brain – the hypothalamus and the pineal gland. Our moods, even those of color-blind people, are affected by the intensity and color of light around us.

Use a consultant to help you decorate your office and choose your wardrobe. The right color and lighting can raise output and make work more enjoyable. Wearing the right colors can also boost a sales rep’s closing rate. Also, bring more natural light into the workplace. Tests show that it has a positive impact on performance. There are lights available now that simulate natural light.

Sound secrets

Women are far more sensitive to sound than men. They can also hear higher pitched sounds. Some research suggests that women may even be subliminally sensitive to sounds beyond the conscious hearing range. Some scientists believe high frequency tones given off by computer terminals can cause stress in women who use them. Harm may occur even though users aren’t actually aware of the sound. Hire an acoustical engineer to solve the problem if your company has complaints. The problem may lie with the sound and not the light source.

Also certain sounds are soothing enough to encourage greater performance. This is the reason why you will hear only certain types of music being played when you go to certain offices. Also you may notice that the music being played through the intercom system is only played at a low volume, so much so you may forget it is playing.

Smell secrets

This may be the most exciting area of research. Science has discovered that odors have a profound effect on our mood and performance. So exposure to apple-cinnamon may improve editing skills, fruit scents may induce women to make certain purchases, clove has a calming effect, and peppermint elevates mood and may relieve headaches. Try scenting your office with various fragrances to find the ones that have the effect you want. Some businesses opt for certain flowers that give off an aroma, in the offices or around the ground

Biorhythm secrets

Each individual has a natural rhythm to his/her activities, but in a typical business environment we’re all expected to arrive, work, and eat at more or less the same times. Give yourself more schedule flexibility: try experimenting with having several snacks instead of one long meal. Take a midday nap if it helps rejuvenate you in the afternoon. As far as possible within the demands of the business world, tell employees you’re more interested in results than in when they’re achieved.

Biorhythms are also affected by sunlight. If you must start work before sunup, take an outdoor break as early in the day as possible. It can boost your mood and productivity. Keep a chart of your own cycles of high and low energy levels. Try to schedule meeting and other tasks accordingly.

Gender secrets

The latest tests confirm again that women are biologically equipped to process a wider range of sensory information than men. Women are less obsessed with beating out rivals and getting super-rich than men are. They want to succeed for the sake of emotional fulfilment. Men are more prone to tunnel vision – aiming at destroying their enemies quickly. Women, by contrast, see the broader picture and strategies better for long term success. Despite these differences between the sexes, managers don’t have to plan one set of tasks for women and another for men. Instead, be attuned to using the assets of each to the best advantage. So when a team to handle a project is being assembled, try to include a balance of men and women. If you don’t, chances are greater that the team will overlook an important strategy, side effect, market, or other opportunity.

Age secrets

As people grow older, their gender hormone levels decline. In women, declining estrogen during menopause can bring on irritability and forgetfulness. In men, declining testosterone levels can cause low energy levels and loss of concentration. If you manage people who show these symptoms, help them find support and do the same for yourself if you are nearing 50.

To increase productivity and job satisfaction among older workers, offer to redesign offices for them – provide softer colors, comfortably built chairs, equipment with large enough displays to be seen by anyone with less than great vision.

Brain secrets

Science is rapidly discovering that while the brain has many similarities to a computer – which stores and processes information – the brain also interprets information. Not appreciating this difference has led many companies to rely too heavily on computers. The brain works in a way that usually makes it easier to remember what we read in a book than what we see on computer screens.

Seek expert advice on how people learn whenever your company is developing or revising a training program. Their expertise can be valuable in making training techniques much more effective.

As mentioned before these secrets are not known by many business and people and its take an enlightened business and person to implement them for great productivity results. The more of these put into practice the better your performance will likely be which can only mean more earnings in the long term.
