Defying convention 'gets the best out of workers'

Getting the best out of workers and boosting overall productivity can be achieved through defying workplace conventions, according to one sector expert.

Roger Harrop, business expert and international speaker, said that few employers are realising the potential business benefits of putting health and safety at the centre of everything they do.

He pointed to the example of Microsoft Holland, where staff are judged solely on the basis of results, and therefore have a far greater deal of flexibility in terms of working hours and workloads.

Attitudes such as this should be adopted in the UK if firms want to ensure staff are satisfied with their jobs, Mr Harrop claimed.

"They are as a result the most productive Microsoft company in the world, with absenteeism and sickness both down. Do what Microsoft Holland has done, and turn the world of work on its head," he added.

It comes after a new Bristol University study suggested that productivity among staff, including those in sales recruitment positions, could be improved if companies encouraged healthy initiatives such as walking or cycling to work.
