How we do it

By identifying the different environmental factors that can have an impact on a person's productivity, stress levels and health. Some people are affected by the noise the printer makes, and others hardly notice it. For some people, bright fluorescent lights cause headaches, while others don't even notice a broken, flickering light bulb. We are all different, and react differently to the stimuli from our direct environment. Learning what to avoid and what to get more of plays an integral part in how productive we will be. Being exposed to too much distractions when you should rather be avoiding them altogether will not only affect productivity, but will also increase stress levels which in turn affects your health negatively.
By ensuring that individuals are working in the environment where they will be most productive. Some people prefer routine and working on their own, while others thrive on being spontaneous, working with and around other people. Try putting an outgoing, people's person alone in an office ...the need for interaction with others will affect his or her productivity greatly, because they will spend more time in the corridors, than behind their desk in their office. Likewise, if you put a task-driven specialist in an open plan environment, their productivity would suffer because of all the distractions.
By promoting employee engagement which leads to motivated and positive employees, which in turn leads to satisfied customers, more businesses and better profits. Engaged employees are involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace, according Gallup. They have job satisfaction and feel that they contribute to the goals, vision and mission of the company.
By boosting company culture so that employees are committed to the company's goals and targets and strive to give their best every day to contribute to its success, knowing that their input makes a difference and their work has meaning . Different companies have different cultures - and that is how it should be. In some companies it is important for people to work independently, while other companies need a culture of teamwork and collaboration. The important thing is to make sure employees fit the company culture. Employees will get job satisfaction and perform better where their values and needs are in line with that of the company.

More about us

I started The Productivity Lab in 2010, after a career of 18 years in the corporate world. During the 18 years, I gained a thorough understanding of the factors that hinder a company’s productivity. I also realised that most people never reach their full potential, mainly because they are not aware of all they are capable of.

My passion for people drives me to assist businesses to adopt a company culture where employees look forward to coming to work. Where there is mutual respect, collaboration, employee engagement, job satisfaction and even some fun. I firmly believe that happy employees are productive employees and I love win-win solutions!

I hold a B.Comm Industrial Psychology degree and I collaborate with other professionals to fill the gaps I don't focus on.
