Employee Productivity Coaching

Many managers complain that employees have no cost awareness and no self-responsibility. This is accompanied by a lack of productivity. According to a study by Czipin Consulting, only 37 by 60 minutes of working time are used productively. The goal should be 51 minutes.

We at apc support you in coaching conversations with your employees to develop a true cost consciousness. The result: a strong increase in the productivity of your employees.

The reasons for low productivity are:

  • In many cases there are no figures material for services and costs. Therefore there is no default system for the productivity analysis.
  • Employees have never been confronted with cost or performance figures. How often do the employees learn from the media that the company is bankrupt?
  • Especially young, inexperienced executives have to understand the processes and the requirements in their area. Only then can they plan and control the performance targets for their employees.

Increase the cost awareness and productivity within your employees with the help of the GREKO software and Employee Coaching

  • With the help of the GREKO software, every cost center manager can and should independently experience the costs and benefits and influence them accordingly. They now know not only where the costs arise, but what causes such a rise!
  • The monthly planned flexible budget accounting shows the person responsible exactly where the deviations between planned and actual cost rates arise. Unbelievable what “aha” effects are triggered in the monthly meetings!
  • When deviations upwards appear, everyone helps to analyze where the problem lies. And now, in the sense of the cost-causer principle, you can set the right measures. It creates a real cost awareness.
  • The goal of the Coaching is to ensure that all the employees use the same language in terms of costs.
