No matter what kind of business you run, increasing your productivity is the key to increasing your profits. Whether you manage a shopping center or run a boutique recruitment agency, continuously finding ways to streamline your operations and increase productivity should be at the top of your list of priorities. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at three areas you can focus on to increase business productivity and boost your profits this year.

1) Cloud computing

Cloud computing is one of those things that everyone has heard of, but very few people really understand. Whilst many of us know that the cloud allows us to store some photos and documents online, there are countless other benefits to cloud computing that could help to streamline your operations in a myriad of ways.

First of all, cloud computing allows you and your staff to access files, software, and information from any location with WiFi. This opens up a world of opportunity to work from home or allow staff to work on the road. This can save time and allow staff to continue working whilst traveling to meetings for example. And it can also help you offer flexible working options to keep staff happy and motivated.

Cloud computing also offers other benefits such as real-time reporting and data recovery capabilities. It also means that you outsource a lot of your IT capabilities and save time and money on software updates and virus protection. It can also be scaled up or down depending on your business needs.

2) Cleaning machines

So many businesses underestimate the amount of time and money is wasted during cleaning procedures. Whilst the importance of cleanliness varies from industry to industry, every single business must maintain a certain standard of hygiene. Cleaning is, therefore, an unavoidable but often time-consuming part of every business.

By investing in the right machines, however, you can streamline the cleaning process and maximize productivity. For example, by investing in a floor scrubber, you will minimize the amount of time and effort it takes for your staff to clean your floor every day and free them up to do other tasks that directly contribute towards your productivity and profits.

Investing in the right cleaning machinery will also improve the quality of the cleaning. So in short, you’ll reach a higher standard of cleanliness in a fraction of the time thus minimizing cost and maximizing productivity.

3) Employee development & education

Whilst staff turnover is a very common thing in today’s business climate, it’s still important to focus on their long term development and education. Investing in your staff by providing the training and knowledge they need to progress in their careers will boost overall productivity and help you grow your business. In a climate where workers are inclined to move from company to company, providing a structure where they can feel satisfied and challenged for the long term will allow you to retain staff and keep vital talent in-house.

Keeping staff long term will help minimize the amount of time it takes to onboard new workers and ensuring that all staff is constantly receiving the best training and education will help make sure that they work as effectively and efficiently as possible. All of this results in higher productivity, higher quality work and business growth.


Increasing your company’s productivity is essential if you want to remain competitive in today’s market. Finding ways to streamline operations and boost productivity is therefore key. Whether it is time, money, effort or all of the above, all of these ideas will require a little bit of investment in the short term but the long term benefits will far outweigh any initial cost.
