However, it is essential that the atmosphere isn’t constantly focused and serious. This is because employees can easily lose focus which can result in a decrease in concentration and lack of morale, and consequently their work can suffer. It is important to maintain a balance between having fun and being concentrated in order to produce the best work possible.
The fact that managers are interrupted, on average, every 8 minutes can at first be viewed as a negative as it can result in a lack of focus on their work, especially if they are interrupted for something that another colleague is capable of doing. However, interruptions can also be seen as a positive as they are sometimes necessary to complete essential tasks cooperatively.
Workplace trivia questions and answers are an easy and helpful way to boost the morale and atmosphere in the office. Having fun in the workplace keep your office relaxed which will result in increased productivity as employees continue to enjoy their job.
Different Office Personalities Can Be The Reason For Lower Productivity
We know that breaks during the working day are important to keep morale and productivity high and having a relaxed atmosphere from time to time is essential in order to keep your staff motivated. Introducing fun trivia questions and answers and other games in the office is definitely an effective way to maintain a happy environment. However, if you still aren’t noticing any improvements within their work, it could be due to the layout and furniture in your office as it may not be ideal for each office worker’s personality.
By determining each individual personality in your office, it’ll help you to decide which furniture or equipment is ideal for each person and in turn, each employee will feel more comfortable and satisfied with their work space, resulting in a productivity increase.
For example, you may find that a majority of your employees are “go-getters”, meaning that they always like to be busy and are most of the time, not sat at their desk. Even though a loud and busy environment will work effectively for them, this may not be the case for the quieter colleagues of the group. Creative personalities tend to feel more comfortable working in quiet and spacious places with little distraction. To resolve this, having a more flexible office environment by introducing things such as quiet zones and desk screens, could be the key to higher productivity throughout your employees.
