We all know that plants clear the air and produce oxygen. The air conditioning system is great and necessary, but there’s nothing better than the fresh air from living plants.
Besides, having a plant in the workplace helps employees to stay focused and feel more awake.
Invest in an ergonomic keyboard and mousepad
The carpal tunnel syndrome is a common thing for most office workers. And the reason for that is uncomfortable positioning of keyboard and mousepad.
The easiest way to find out if your employees have it is to ask if they have numbness, pain or tingling in their wrists while working at the computer.
If they do, then it’s time to change all the keyboards and mousepads.
Encourage employee to practice mental games and brain exercises
It is one of the ways to increase employee productivity: by increasing the brain power and mental strength. However, tell employees to play them at home, as they are quite tiring. So, if done during the working day, they can actually decrease productivity.
Here are some examples of games: Lumosity, Elevate, Fit Brains Trainer.
Use these tips in combination with tracking employee hours to drive the overall productivity and keep it growing.
