Boosting Employee Productivity During Covid
The ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) has written up a report for their Business and Management Magazine on employee productivity in the Covid, home-working environment.
In the article, reporter Paul Golden examines a number of studies on post-Covid workplace productivity, and looks at the various ways employers seek to monitor and encourage productivity.
The piece offers experts’ advice on how to engage with and support employees in a time of great change for traditional working patterns and environments, and outlines some of the ways different companies are already handling the shift.
Guildhawk CEO, Jurga Zilinskiene, was interviewed as part of the ICAEW’s report, and Guildhawk used as an example of how consultation and dialogue with your people is key to ensuring employees feel secure, taken care of, and empowered to work in the way they’re most efficient.
As the article notes, working in this way has allowed an 18% increase in productivity at Guildhawk, meaning office space could be surrendered, and the money saved invested back into Guildhawk’s most precious asset: its people.
