July 2021 Admin Conference
Improving employee productivity remains a major concern for most organizations. This is because higher levels of employee productivity are of great benefit to both the organization and its employees. For instance, higher productivity leads to favorable economic growth, large profitability, and better social progress (Sharma & Sharma, 2014). Therefore, employee productivity has become an important objective for businesses.
It is important to realize that a high level of employee productivity cannot be achieved in a vacuum. Taking care of employee wellbeing positively affects business results. Many studies show a direct link between productivity levels and the general health and well-being of the workforce. Workplace wellbeing relates to all aspects of working life, from the quality and safety of the physical environment, to how workers feel about their work, their working environment, the climate at work, and work organization.
In recognition of the link between productivity levels and wellbeing, the Chartered Institute of Administrators and Management Consultants-Ghana have chosen, Health, Wellbeing, and Productivity in the Workplace, as the theme for the 3rd annual administration professionals’ conference. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, many employers noticed the impact that employee wellbeing has on their performance, and consequently on the business results. Employees were distressed and worried, and employers had to find ways to accommodate the rising need for empathy towards their employees. The success of the maiden conference held on Tuesday 23rd July 2019, followed by the 28th July 2020 edition, is a true reflection of the appreciation of the pivotal role of administration in the sustenance of every business entity.
