Of course, it can be! Many times, companies hide large inventories of efficiency, but unfortunately, they remain untapped. Efficiency is not only seen in the company’s profit or loss but also in business stability and innovation. In recent periods, the economic conditions have been favorable and productivity in companies has been increasing.
Businesses often have systems that reward employees for productivity. This means that the sales department focuses only on the volume of sales, the production department only on the quantity produced, the accounting department does not have an adequate number of employees. When employees are rewarded only in terms of productivity, they will work more, but they will contribute almost nothing to business optimization and changes in work processes, which are crucial for the long-term existence of the company.
Is this happening in your company as well?
Business is good, revenue is growing, profits are growing, some employees have recently left the company. But others are making the overtime required to ensure that orders are executed as ordered. Increasing numbers can dazzle you, and you will be shocked when economic conditions change and demand for your products or services declines. The fact is that when employees work longer hours or take care of several areas at the same time, their efficiency drops by 40%, and with prolonged overload, their IQ decreases by 10%. This means that with every hour of overtime your employees put in, you lose valuable money.

There are many directors who are aware of the importance of efficiency in a company, but in the moment of good market status, they do not pay attention to it, because they see an excessive burden in already burdened processes. Are you one of them?
