#1: Workplace Productivity Increases Output Without Increasing Input

Productivity is defined as “the effectiveness of productive effort.” It is “measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input.”

What does this mean? Well, think about it this way:

Let’s say your law firm wants to take on 25% more cases this year. You have a few options:

  • Hire more lawyers to handle the workload;
  • Pay your current lawyers more to do extra work.

Both of these options involve increasing input (labor, money, and/or materials). But if you focus on increasing productivity levels, input stays the same. The only thing increasing is output (and sometimes with the help of a dashing master of ceremonies). 

With the proper tools, your current lawyers can get more done in the same amount of time. Then, your firm saves money and takes on more cases.

#2: Employee Productivity = More Goods for the Same Amount of Work

Let’s say that you have eight hours in a workday. What if you could double the amount of work you get done during those eight hours? That is increased productivity.

When we improve productivity in the workplace environment, employees have greater output without working more hours.

Companies then see economic growth because they have more product and employees who are not overworked.

Labor statistics show that low productivity makes for high employee turnover.

Uninspired employees are not likely to stay at a business for long. Therefore, improving productivity with a corporate MC helps you motivate employees to improve efficiency and stay with the business.

#3: Get Your Time Back

Productivity in the workplace leaves time for other tasks.

Let’s say you typically spend four hours filing.

Thanks to the productivity resources provided by top management (including hiring an emcee for some added workplace fun), now you spend less time filing. You can use the remaining time to increase output in other areas.

Highly productive employees make the most out of their hours worked.

With the right tools, they can get tasks done in fewer hours. They can then reap a variety of benefits: more time with customers, a chance to get ahead on other projects, or time to rejuvenate at home.
