“I can’t wait to go back to normal.”
You’ve probably said it yourself, or at least heard it, in the past few weeks.
That phrase has to be one of the most commonly uttered phrases since the start of the pandemic. However, most people have realized that life will not be going back to normal anytime soon, as COVID-19 cases are spiking worldwide, and cities, states, and municipalities are entering back into strict lockdowns. With the days getting darker and colder here in the western hemisphere, almost everyone faces slumps in productivity.
If you are looking for something simple to help increase your team members’ productivity, consider using a People Intelligence platform. What can a People Intelligence platform do for you?
Eliminates Need for Unnecessary Meetings
As mentioned, Zoom Fatigue is real, and while, in general, people enjoy social interaction, spending every minute of the day on a video call can be draining. Additionally, there are only so many hours in a day, and everyone should be placing boundaries to maintain their work-life balance, so why spend extra time on meetings? With a People Intelligence platform, you can use data from platforms you are already using, such as Zoom, Slack, Trello, to aggregate your data into one dashboard to help you make decisions that would usually require meetings. For example, Maybe growth in your sales team has stalled, and you don’t know why. Your People Intelligence platform will show you real-time data and automated guidance, along with high-level overviews and deep insights around every team. No need to call a long meeting to solve the problem, the data is right in front of you, and you’ve saved another hour of your day.
Creates Personalized Recommendations to Keep Your Employees From Burning Out
Once someone reaches their burnout point, their productivity drops. With a People Intelligence platform, you can get personalized recommendations for each team member to help keep everyone on track. Say that your top salesperson, Erin, has been seemingly doing okay. But your People Intelligence platform alerts you to let you know that she’s been working long hours and suggests you offer her a day off. Now, with that much needed day of rest, Erin came back to work and immediately increased her productivity and improved her numbers. These come with a caveat, however—make sure you are paying close attention to these recommendations and leading with empathy in the current environment—not everyone will be able to increase their productivity dramatically with just one day off.
Consistent Updates That Cut Back On Waiting Time
Andy is an executive of a software startup, and he needs the end of the monthly report from the engineering team. However, it’s taking them quite a bit of time, as they are going from platform to platform, trying to aggregate all of their data. With a People Intelligence platform like Peoplelogic, they could get all of that data to you in one place, quickly and in real-time. Now, instead of waiting for the engineering team to compile a report, you have it right there in front of you in real time, and they can be productive doing what they need to do (engineering), and you can go through the report quickly and with confidence that there are no errors.
Creates a Team of Talented People
We all know that nothing slows productivity like an unproductive team member who doesn’t work well with the team. With a People Intelligence platform, you can avoid this by hiring a group of talented people who mesh well with your current team and bring on new skills and perspectives. Once you’ve got your platform set up, with a few clicks, you can pull up your dashboard with all of your team’s skills and personality insights. Having the right people in the right positions can make all the difference in having projects and tasks done in the most efficient way possible.
Preventing Disasters Before they Start
Lastly, nothing throws a wrench in a productive day like an unprecedented problem or issue in your company. However, real-time updates from a People Intelligence platform can keep you from having problems, issues, or bottlenecks in the first place. So instead of spending your day solving a problem and missing out on precious time, try using a People Intelligence platform so you can spend time on things you truly need.
As you can see from the above examples, a People Intelligence platform can dramatically impact an organization’s productivity. Peoplelogic lets you understand how everyone gets work done, not just your top and bottom performers. We’re weaving together comprehensive data from the tools you already use into an insightful and actionable story.
