3 ways to increase the productivity of your tech startup

Posted by John Mathewson on December 16, 2015

Here are a few ways you can improve the overall productivity of your tech startup:

  • Create a flexible office: People work outside of 9-to-5 these days, which means companies have to be more open to flexible schedules. We have technology that enables us to talk and work no matter where we happen to be. Encourage employees to break away from their desks and find inspiration and productivity to work, wherever that might be.
  • Encourage communication: Many companies falter because there is not open communication between departments, with one set of employees focused on one task without consulting anybody outside of their bubble. In order to finish projects and jobs faster, everybody needs to be working in tandem. If not, there could be a situation where a project is done incorrectly because necessary information was not passed along.
  • Give everyone a voice: For people to be invested and want to accomplish a goal on time, they have to feel as if their voice is actually being heard by those in management. Fostering a culture where people feel as if their ideas are valued and actually used in the company is essential for a startup to build an edge over the competition. Nobody wants to feel alienated or as if the work they are doing does not matter, and effective communication can erase those thoughts entirely.
