How does your company rate in each of the four areas?

I found a great post “The 4 top productivity drivers by Miki Saxon 2008  that I wanted to share
“…..Doing more for less. Productivity is always important, but it’s especially critical as the economy toughens.

The 40 year-old Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) is the world’s largest private network of corporations focused on improving workforce productivity.

Although i4cp requires membership to access much of its data, the Trendwatcher archives are free and loaded with useful information.

The research that caught my eye shows that “the most productive organizations furthest outstripped the average ones graph.jpgin four areas:

* Culture: 79% of the most productive organizations say that, to a high or very high degree, the cultures of their organizations help raise employee productivity.

* Leadership: 76% of highly productive companies said that, to a high or very high extent, leadership in their companies raises productivity.

* Employee engagement: 59% of highly productive organizations use engagement practices to a high or very high extent. Engagement means that workers are mentally and emotionally invested in their work and in contributing to their employer’s success.

* Employee health/wellness programs: Although It could be an anomaly, “People like to work for organizations that send strong signals that they care for their employees. These particular programs may be sending those signals more than most other types of initiatives do,” For more great information visit –The Leadership Turn Blog

I ask myself , What can I do in my areas of responsibilities at home and Prosper Inc. to improve productivity. What can you do?
