How does organisational design and development enhance productivity of employees Productivity is a technical term that measures the ratio between the amount of inputs and the corresponding output. There are many factors that have a bearing on the productivity of the employees of an organisation. One of them should definitely be the organisational design and development. Organisational Design can include the vision, missions, roles, process, activities and even the hierarchy to be followed in an organisation so that it is able to realise its goals. The design for one particular organisation is unique to its’s own. It is this design that sets particular standards and certain other specificities to be followed. The manner in which this is set up will have varied but direct bearing upon the employee productivity rate. The right organisational design will automatically lead to development in various aspects. A good structure, hierarchy, sound management and communication between the organs of a company are the ways in which it will embrace the new changes and developments. The combination of a sound organisational design and its consequential developments in various sectors will lead to the enhancement of productivity of employees in the organisation. Niramay Satpute, an esteemed HR professional, explains: 1. Good Management - Regardless of the size of the organisation, good leadership is always a prerequisite for any company to see the light of day. Good management at top, middle and lower levels will have a huge impact on the employees. This is why organisations have hierarchies - the authorities always flow top to bottom. If the top authority is intelligent and makes good decisions, it will automatically penetrate to the very last employee. This will lead to a boost inn their morale and ultimately help improve their productivity. 2. Creativity Enhancement - The best compliment a manager could get is an employee waking up to him and asking for more work - it means he has done a great job of improving the employee’s productivity. When the management realises the various pressure points y usage of their unique organisational design, it leads to better incentives to the workers, in turn leading to enhancement of their creativity at work. This has none but one result - enhanced productivity. 3. Structured Flow of Information - Most of the rules, instructions and other information to the employees in an organisation flows the same way authority flows - through the designed structure of hierarchy. All the levels of management teams need to have effective channels of communication to get the right information at the right time. This is where organisational design comes into major play. A good design will work wonders on the whole functioning of an organisation. 4. Growth for both sides - The ultimate result of a good organisational design as well as development in the working, is that it leads to growth for


both the employees as well as the organisation. An individual realises his goals and needs by giving his best at working for the organisation’s goals. That way it will lead to organisational development as it expands as well as maintain productivity while still growing. These are some of the very important ways in which a sound organisation structure does an inevitable job of leading to development as well as ensuring enhancement of employee productivity.
