Staff build businesses.

Monday, 20 January 2020

2020 is now well under way and we’re all back to business as usual but what does your business actually look like at the start of the year?

Do you have a thriving business and a clear vision for progress through 2020 along with a strong team to help you achieve those goals?

You can have the most thorough business plan in place along with a huge social media presence and robust marketing campaign to support your clear vision and company values BUT do you have the team in place to make it all a reality?

Staff build businesses. 

It may sound silly but staff is an area in which many organisations fail to invest properly.

Hiring the right people – those who fit with your vision and company culture – will help to drive your business forward. If your business is properly structured with the right staff, it will be well organised and efficient which will enable growth in the future.

Having a successful team of people on board will enable you, as leader, to take a step back from the day to day running of operations and work on the strategy and therefore see the bigger picture in order to drive your business in the right direction.

How is business growth achieved? Our 5-point plan:

  1. Hire the right employee who is a proper fit for each job role that you have and who possess the appropriate strengths to excel in the role.
  2. Once you have hired the right staff member for each role, make sure that your onboard programme ensures that the staff member knows what is expected from them and is supported to be able to perform in the role to the best of their abilities.
  3. Keep your team motivated at all times. Your staff need to know that they are appreciated.
  4. Hold regular staff reviews – at least once per month – to review performance and development in the role.
  5. Build an excellent company culture in order to retain good staff and ensure that their productivity remains on track.
