We hope that you have had a fantastic Christmas and we wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
Now is a very exciting time for businesses as it is usually a time where you are considering the direction that you’d like to take your business in, to plan ahead, to expand into existing markets or to branch out into new ones. Certainly, we are increasingly seeing the tide turning too in terms of what our clients are looking for from us and it’s important that you remain one step ahead of your competition.
This is why now is a critical time to make sure that your employees are performing the right tasks and to the right level to enable you to achieve your company goals and to get those profits rolling in.
So, let’s get down to the specifics, what would be our top tips for getting your team on track.
1) Recruitment – Make sure that you have a clear vision as to what you want your future business to look like and make sure that this is reflected in your recruitment processes to tease out what your model employee might look like. It’ll be worth it in the long-term.
2) Goals – Make sure that you have clearly defined company goals, that are clearly communicated and understood by your employees, and that they know how they contribute individually to the achievement of those goals.
3) Reviews – Have regular reviews with your employees to make sure that they understand how they are performing and whether they have any development areas.
4) Training – Make sure that you provide opportunities to your employees for additional training and support to help them to develop and to support your growth plans. This doesn’t just mean going on a training course, it could also mean “sitting next to Nelly”, eg, matching your employee up with one of their colleagues to share their skills and knowledge.
