What is productivity?

Productivity is the measure of the amount of work or output an employee delivers within a specific period of time.

Why is productivity important?

Productivity is key to a company’s profitability and ability to thrive because it literally determines how much work gets done! Mental health and productivity are closely linked, with some studies showing that addressing well-being at work can increase productivity by more than 10%. In contrast, data supplied by the American Psychiatric Association indicates that employees with unresolved depression experience a 35% reduction in productivity, with a loss to the U.S. economy of $210.5 billion a year, due to absenteeism, reduced productivity and medical costs.

Warning signs of decreasing employee productivity

  • Reduced work quality
  • Missed deadlines
  • Stress
  • Lack of motivation
  • Low team morale
  • Toxic workplace behavior/poor communication
