Smart Benefits: How to Boost Productivity When Spring Fever Hits

Monday, May 14, 2018

 

With the warm sun and rising temperatures, spring signals a time to get outside. And for some employees, that means daydreaming, longer lunches or walks at break time, or even cutting out of work a bit earlier. How can you keep productivity up when spring fever hits?

  • Be Flexible: Try offering flexible schedules so workers can have a better work-life balance when the weather’s good.
  • Enhance the Workspace: Bring the outside in by decorating with plants and flowers, opening the windows, and scenting the air with fresh fragrances.
  • Plan an Outdoor Team Event: To get employees outside, plan a team building event or even a picnic that takes advantage of the sunshine.
  • Extend the Office: Depending on your location, you may be able to offer outdoor workspaces where people can bring their laptops and connect to WiFi or areas to hold walking meetings.
  • Offer New Challenges: Spring’s distractions may not be the only thing affecting worker productivity. They may also be bored with their tasks so consider this season to engage them with a special project or team.
