Getting people to try something new is often a lot simpler than convincing them to make a permanent change. For most people, convenience is the most important thing even when informed of the long-term benefits to their health and wealth.

Increasing productivity isn’t a set process you can follow step-by-step and what works for one business may not be helpful for yours. That’s why we’ve put together a list of a few different ways you can encourage your employees to be more productive and engaged.
