23 Jan 5 Ways to Re-Wire Your Work Productivity
We spend an average of 8 to 10 hours a day in the office (more especially those working in BPO companies in the Philippines). The demands ten years ago is quite different from the demands we are experiencing today. Technology has it possible to stack 3 workloads with one gadget, demanding that we do more on our jobs. Efficiency may come at a cost — and it’s too costly and then deterioration starts. Since we can’t predict our environment, we needed to adapt.
Apathy may be one of the factors that keeps employees from working their best. But this doesn’t come as a choice. Factors such as burnouts, office conflicts and even personal stress are commonly experienced by people who developed these traits.
Get your work-life balance on the right track by pondering on these advices:
It may seem counterintuitive, but this plays a great factor in allowing your mind to filter through the day’s or week’s events. Take the time to refresh and value stillness. This way, you can sustain momentum and let you play the game at your best.
Moods are important at work
Employee mentality says ‘work is not fun’. Well, no one got out alive from stacks and stacks of papers with that mentality. Enjoying specific tasks boosts productivity and employee engagement. Having occasional activities that stimulates fun makes up for a more creative and productive work environment.
Incorporate the play factor
Play promotes the release of dopamine, the ‘happy’ hormone. Those ‘happy’ feelings encourages the worker to become more productive with their tasks. Play allows creativity to surface and encourage innovation instead of them becoming familiar with routine tasks.
The art of vulnerability
Change is uncomfortable. People may not agree to a new policy, a new technique, a change of place or a change of environment. Stepping out of the familiar encourages exploration and innovation.
When you’re able to empathize with your co-worker, boss and even the organization’s cause, the morale is high and the purpose clear. People moving in the same direction with purpose makes for a healthy working environment.
Employees have experienced symptoms of burnout, stress and even apathy towards work. Inspiration comes differently for everyone. If it doesn’t float your boat, you might as well look for it. But it has to start with your perspective. And overcoming that is yours for the taking.
