Reasons why some employees are less-than-productive

Do you have a less-than-productive employee(s) in your organization?

Generally speaking, these are guys characterized by the following behaviors:

Always too slow to react to instructions
Always struggling to grasp the basics of any task given to them
Always trying to dodge tasks
Never owning up for their mistakes
Overly prone to error
Never operating on the same wavelength as the rest of the team

I know you’re sick and tired of always complaining about them. But you don’t need to feel so bad about it. Every organization has these sorts of workers in their ranks.

In this guide, I’m going to introduce you to a tool you can use to address this problem.

But before going into the discussion of this tool, aren’t you even a little bit curious to know why these employees are not as productive as you’d want them in the first place?

Reasons why some employees are less-than-productive

The productivity of your employees could be dampened by the following factors:

Working environment not conducive
Business processes too ambiguous, complex, or not so clear.
Poor medium of communication
Not recognizing or rewarding employees’ hard work
Absence of adequate health and wellbeing support

Now that you know some of the reasons why your workers might be working at a less than productive rate, the next thing is to find a way to address these “reasons.”

Luckily for you, there’s a tool that can help you do that.

Maybe not everything, but Zen flowchart can surely help you address some of the employee productivity problems you might be having on your hands.

Let’s find out how!

How Zen Flowchart solves your employee productivity problems

Zen flowchart can help address your communication problems

Poor communication remains one of the biggest reasons why an employee might be unproductive. If an employee cannot understand the instructions you’re passing to them – perhaps because of the language or method you’re using to pass the message – it’s almost certain that they will struggle to deliver the sort of results you expect of them.

The good news?

Instead of talking, you can use the Zen flowchart maker to create visual charts, which you can then show to your employees. By looking at the step-by-step instructions on a chart, it’s almost impossible that an employee would miss out on any detail or skip a step as a result of forgetfulness or lack of understanding.
