‘The Office’ is an American mockumentary sitcom that aired for 8 years from 2005 until 2013. As the name suggests, it’s all about everyday work lives of office employees. Although this series may not depict accurately about the office environment, we can still find deeper meanings behind it and take lessons on how to improve productivity in a workplace.
It’s only logical that when working in an office, everybody needs to add value to the company, clients, and customers. If there is no value being added then what’s even the point of improving on other areas. This is crucial as understanding the importance of generating value will create a clear path and vision for the company, not to mention, uplifting productivity for the forseeable future. Everybody from bosses to the employees need to conduct research on what is going to create value and what’s going to be a waste of time. Spotting the difference between those two things will make or break the company’s productivity.
Problems and Solutions
Dealing with problems is part of the package when working in an office. Finding the solutions to those problems is the next step. However, people tend to forget that if it’s not broken, then don’t fix it. That’s why, the important part is to actually uncover the real and impactful problems at hand first. By doing this, employees will be able to focus and muster all their energy on tackling those major problems, rather than scrambling to find solutions for problems that doesn’t even have a big impact on the company. Finding solutions for something that isn’t even broken will only deplete resources and heavily decrease productivity. Always identify which ones needs attention and solve it.
Stay Calm and Patient

Rather than just being mad and lose control, just stay calm, be patient, and find the suitable answer for those confrontations.
