Ergonomic Engineering | 5 Ways to Steer Your Workspace Towards Productivity

The level of productivity a workplace has one of the best ways to determine if the company will be, or is, successful or not. The best place to start looking at productivity is the management.

But, before thinking of the next “big step” to help push productivity, it’s best to try and improve what the company already has. Here is a list with 5 ways to help steer your workplace towards productivity.

Have a business plan

You can’t start a project or job without having a business plan. Work out set dates and goals to make it more manageable to work towards, and be able to have the end goal in sight. Distributing a business plan out to your workers will also give them the ability to be able to work autonomously, completing and moving from job to job seamlessly.

Encourage your workers

Encouraging your workers will motivate them to want to finish their task on time and having done a good job rather than a rushed one. Treating everyone as though they’re equals rather than if they were under you is a great place to start, as just because you are in charge of a group of people does not make you better them, and acting like you are will make them not want to succeed with company or personal goals when it comes to their work.

Keep work a stress free zone

Keeping stress out of the work place is a great way to ensure that focus is being kept on the task at hand and that work is getting done on time and up to company standards. Small things such as allowing quick breaks, or even just having a conversation with your workers or work mates can really help eliminate stress.

If someone in the office or workplace has an issue, be sure to help them through it until they are confident that they can continue working on it, otherwise, help lessen the workload on them and offer to help with the actual task. If people come together to help someone in need, more quality work will be able to be put through.


Giving out incentives is a great way to ensure people are working hard to meet goals, deadlines, or targets for the company. Offer daily and weekly awards, if you can, to help keep people motivated to get work flowing at a decent and quality rate as well as keeping the office a fun place to be in. Being able to have fun with the work that you are doing will encourage everyone to meet company and personal goals.

Try to remember that whilst trying to keep a positive and fun manner at the office, work is still work and professionalism in the tasks that you are assigned is first and foremost for a company looking to increase their productivity. If you’re able to create a positive vibe circulating throughout the office, productivity and quality of work shouldn’t be an issue anymore.
