Every year, employee disengagement and lack of motivation costs the UK £340 billion with just 21% of workers considering themselves “very effective” in their current job role. On top of that, sleep-deprived workers cost employers £40 billion in lost productivity, and missed work caused by health issues leads to another £21 billion in annual losses.
To address these issues, Work Wise Week is all about working smarter in today’s modern workforce. In this context, “smarter” means many things: healthier, more efficient, happier, and more productive. Making employees happier, healthier, and more productive should be the number one priority of any company that wants to consistently support the growth of their bottom line.
At QuickBooks, we believe in the power of productivity and the complexities that go into fostering an energized and fruitful workforce. That’s why we’ve created a suite of user-friendly tools and software that support a myriad of business needs. Beyond the brilliance of technology and aside from innovative administrative processes, there are a number of things you can do and steps you can take to work wiser, whether you’re an employer or employee.
In celebration of Work Wise Week, we wanted to help curate and spread awareness about how to take steps towards this kind of invigorated workforce, so we spoke with our community of industry leaders and asked them about their top productivity tips that fuel their own success.
