4 Ways to ensure more Productive Staff and Management:
1. Emotional Support
The saying “never bring your home to work” seems an almost impossible task if the employee is faced with an emotional situation that not only affects them cognitively,but also psychically. Traumatic events,deep emotional disturbances in family life or home related stress has a dramatic impact on an employee’s productivity. The employee has a shorter concentration span and finds it even difficult to perform small day to day tasks.* It is reported that more than 50% of staff is 30% less productive at work if they are faced with an emotional disturbance or trauma at home.*
