The subsequent productivity increases will not come from number-based efforts. They will result from people’s capacity to collaborate consistently.
Some firms continue to see a decline in productivity due to the Great Resignation. Increasing interest rates increase the cost of capital and decrease future profitability. Current and prospective reductions in wages put pressure on firms to boost productivity. Initiated during the previous two years, flexible work arrangements have increased production. The subsequent productivity increases will not come from efforts affecting several workers simultaneously.
Instead, future endeavors will need to be far more individualized, appealing to people, not groups; to persons, not personas. The second layer of productivity enhancements will result from a renewed emphasis on tools, especially in previously overlooked areas for automation. Given the present economic obstacles, it would be prudent to investigate at least these methods to increase productivity. Artificial intelligence software may automatically identify inefficient operations on workers’ devices and bring attention to them. Vulnerabilities may be placed by determining individuals’ repeated tasks as processes and mapping them.
