A produtividade em local de trabalho não é o que você pensa

Como parar de andar em círculos e entregar mais produtividade

Buscar tópicos

Seu local de trabalho é bem movimentado. Ninguém pode contestar esse fato. Basta olhar para a sua caixa de entrada transbordando. E todas as reuniões no seu calendário. E todas as pessoas estressadas correndo pelo escritório.

Mas nessa enxurrada de atividade, o que a equipe está de fato realizando? Você está fazendo progresso em metas importantes ou apenas passando o dia todo em trabalho ocupado?

A produtividade no local de trabalho não significa tentar espremer mais tarefas em cada momento livre. Tudo o que essa mentalidade faz é deixar todos esgotados. Em vez disso, a verdadeira produtividade no local de trabalho significa que todos consigam usar toda sua criatividade, visão e estilo único para o trabalho importante de verdade.

Os hábitos pessoais dos funcionários representam grande parte da produtividade no local de trabalho, é claro, mas eles são apenas parte da equação. A outra parte é o desenvolvimento da cultura de equipe que apoie a produtividade.

Seja você gerente ou colaborador individual, pode ter um papel na construção deste tipo de cultura. Este guia vai oferecer algumas ideias sobre como contribuir.

O que é produtividade no local de trabalho?

Antes de chegar aos detalhes, a gente vai deixar claro o que é a produtividade no local de trabalho e o que não é.

O sinal mais importante de que a equipe é produtiva é bastante simples: as tarefas estão sendo concluídas. E não é qualquer tarefa. As metas mais importantes estão sendo alcançadas.

Outro aspecto da produtividade é realizar essas coisas importantes com eficiência. Você se livrou dos maus hábitos organizacionais que desaceleram o progresso.

Agora, essa definição de produtividade no local de trabalho pode parecer evidente, mas pense em quantas vezes o cenário oposto já aconteceu. Algumas equipes têm dificuldades para concluir as tarefas grandes porque estão sobrecarregadas com as pequenas, como todos os e-mails e reuniões que a gente citou. Elas estão ocupadas, sem dúvida, mas a produtividade é baixa.

Set clear (and specific) onboarding expectations with Confluence features

In that SHRM survey, 23% reported that clear guidelines—including their specific duties and responsibilities—could have prevented a swift exit. While a universal onboarding document is helpful for learning the basics, a role-specific resource is much more beneficial for getting down to the nitty gritty of each job function. Each employee has to know their unique responsibilities in the organization.

You can achieve this by setting up different page elements in Confluence to suit different employee roles. For example:

  • Create “action items” that employees can check off as they finish them, giving them a to-do list. You might help an employee set up their benefits by certain dates, for example.
  • Within Confluence, create individual tables. These tables can include expectations for employee onboarding achievements within 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, or some combination of each.
  • Within your chief onboarding documents, create links to specific project documents so employees are immediately in the loop for projects they’re supposed to join.

Simultaneously, you can create individual team pages to help specify unique roles within the context of your company. Want HR to drop in some specific duties, responsibilities, and expectations for each team member? Use page restrictions to limit editing to that individual. This way, every new employee has the context they need from the teams and people who know their role best.

Scale your onboarding process with templates

If you read the section above, your eyes might already be rolling into the back of your head:

A new page for every employee? That work’s going to add up. My department includes many roles, friend. For example, a marketing department can include as many as 20 different roles, and creating onboarding materials for each one would be time-consuming. But with the use of Confluence templates that work is reduced. Use Confluence templates to build consistent onboarding plans and training resources for your new team members. Populate these templates with all the essential information they’ll need, such as:

  • Project details
  • Marketing/branding guidelines
  • Contact information so they can reach out to key employees for assistance
  • Employee handbooks automatically built-in

With Confluence, you can build a new page from a prebuilt HR template. Setting up a new, employee-specific page for a new hire? Confluence can automatically populate employee handbook information and a company introduction without added work.

Use in-line comments to keep new employees up to speed

At some point, you’ll encounter a bump in the road. No matter how much information an employee takes in, no matter how much they try to reference your existing documentation, there’s going to be some adjustment before they’re fully onboarded into your team’s projects.

But it’s no sweat. Confluence offers in-line collaboration features, like “@” tagging for user-specific comments and page commenting, that helps keep everyone aligned as you address these issues. New employees can comment on pages to ask questions. Or you can loop in an HR representative to help get an employee up to speed. 

For example, if a new employee is joining a Team Space for the first time, they can use in-line comments to address specific questions to the employees who might have the answers. This helps avoid clutter and comments that everyone can see, which keeps the Team Space humming along even as a new employee is getting acclimated.

Separate your employee onboarding data from the rest of your projects

Confluence allows topic tagging features to help delineate different types of content. This also makes employee documents and communication much easier to search through. For example, suppose a new team member needs to reference their onboarding documentation. In that case, they can search through an onboarding tag first—separating this information from any information pertaining to existing projects.

In fact, you can use tags for all sorts of reasons. For example, you can designate benefits, holiday information, and employee requirements under a “company policies” tag, which makes it easier for new employees to navigate.

You can also use labels to make project goals more clear for new team members. Tag your team and project goals—as well as the relevant pages that support them—and make sure to distinguish overarching project briefs from supporting documentation. You’ll give new employees a clearer roadmap for hitting the ground running.

Get your employee feeling like a part of the team

Not-so-fun fact: disengaged employees outnumber engaged employees nearly two-to-one. And engagement is often the result of teamwork. The more quickly employees feel like valued team members, making consistent contributions, the more likely they’ll feel engaged at work. 

As the Harvard Business Review notes: “Research has shown that employees with close connections at work are more productive, creative, and collaborative.”

How do you use software like Confluence to foster that teamwork? Simple: use your communications features to their fullest extent. You can use Confluence and Trello together for onboarding, for example. Team members can blog together or use emoji reactions to express their personality—this helps foster a spirit of collaboration rather than the feeling of ticking items off a checkbox. (Ideally, with Confluence and Trello, you’ll do both simultaneously.)

Team space

A Confluence knowledge base can be built into one or more spaces—you’ll create pages within a team or project space. Over time, you can turn this into a team or organizational knowledge base that serves many employees. It’s up to you to match the type of spaces for its uses. A Knowledge Base for onboarding can be like a new employee handbook, filling in new employees on every detail of what they need to know and what tasks they need to complete as they onboard. A Team Space can be the shared space this employee joins as they get caught up with the goals and projects of their team.
