About the Topic

Increasing Your Employees’ Productivity in 3 Steps

The application of three psychological concepts, based on over a 1000 studies, will increase the productivity of employees. The first is goal setting. Goals instill meaning in otherwise tedious tasks. They give people a sense of purpose. Their attainment gives people feelings of accomplishment and personal effectiveness. In my discussion, I will discuss different types of goals and when each of them should be used.

Even when goals are specific and challenging, people may not choose to improve their productivity. Thus, a second psychological concept key to productivity improvement is outcome expectancy. That is, employees must see the relationship between pursuing goal attainment and the positive outcomes they can expect. If employers understand the outcomes that employees expect from pursuing the goal, they will understand why employees say what they say, and why they do what they do. If employers change the negative outcomes employees expect from goal pursuit, they will gain goal commitment.

Even when employee outcome expectancies are positive, employees may not commit to the attainment of one or more challenging goals because they lack the confidence that they have the ability to attain them. Thus,  I will discuss ways to increase an employee’s self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is the third psychological concept that is key to productivity improvement. It is an employee’s  belief/conviction that “yes, I can” rather than “no, I can’t.
