5 Smart Tips on How to Bring the Best Out of Your Employees

As a repair shop owner, one of your biggest responsibilities (other than running your repair shop smoothly) is to inspire other people to be the best versions of themselves. A motivated employee creates a positive environment in the workplace, whereas an unmotivated employee is destructive and demoralizing, leading to the ultimate unhappiness of everyone around them.

But how do you get to that point? What turns a poor performer into a productivity powerhouse? How do you make your employees more productive?

Here are 5 simple yet smart ways that you need to know on how to improve and increase employee productivity at work. If followed correctly, everyone on your team will not only be more productive and efficient but also happier with their jobs;

Communicate & Know Every Individual

Right after your valuable customers, your employees are the most important asset that you have who help keep your business growing and glowing. If you value them, they’ll put their best effort to meet your expectations and goals.

It’s less about long conversations at the workplace, and more of asking about something that you know has been going on in someone’s life or checking in with them when they seem down. This can build a stronger connection between you and every team member. With this connection will come an opportunity to understand what motivates your employees, what they enjoy doing and what they are working towards.

Eliminate Useless Meetings

Yes, communication is the most important part of aligning goals as a team. But in spite of having the best intentions, do not go for unnecessary meetings every day. Instead, to get everyone on the same page, call for a collective meeting and assign tasks to each staff member before the shift starts.

Keep things simple, and don’t let meetings to be transformed into a lecture or a speech. It should be a way for employees to discuss if they are stuck and need any help regarding their assigned job, or if they want to suggest any ideas that will serve in business growth.

For this very purpose, get command on the most important skill – time management. You can check out our post on 7 Key Tips on Effective Time Management in Retail Business to get you up to speed.

Monitor Them & Provide Feedback

When your team is working to achieve the goals set out for them, you should keep tabs on how they are progressing, but never go overboard. Allow them the freedom to work at their own pace, with ease and do not force your methods upon them.

With your team’s daily tasks, it is also important to create an open line for dialogue to build trust. Let them know what you think about their performance and what needs to be improved. This increases organizational transparency, allowing employees to focus more on their work, how they can improve and what works best.

Improve Employees’ Skills with Training

To maximize employees’ productivity, your workers should be provided with enough training before being fully immersed in their roles. Continuous learning and training sessions will help them gain confidence, and well-trained employees will contribute to higher quality work for your business, resulting in a win-win for everyone involved!

Celebrate Little Achievements & Appreciate Good Work

No one wants to put forth their best effort when they won’t be compensated for their hard work. There’s nothing wrong in appreciating your workers on their little accomplishments

A person who feels appreciated will always do more than what is expected.

You’ll be surprised how much a “good job” goes with some people. It can make the difference between a happy and productive employee vs. someone who leaves your company.
