APRIL / MAY 2004:
PIN THE TAIL ON PRODUCTIVITY
Make Increased Productivity into Child's-Play!
1. Give constant feedback
2. Make productivity into a game
3. Offer immediate rewards
Celebratory moments should shake like a Polaroid Picture. Keep it light and fun-shake New Year's noisemakers or pompoms. Try crazy contests. Reward employees with "Congratulations" or "Way-To-Go" Mylar balloons and give your office an aura of a children's birthday party. Remember, productivity may be sparked by new technology but is ignited by new attitudes.
