A Crucial Component to your Businesses Success
It’s too easy to get caught up in the day to day hustle, forgetting one critical aspect of your business.
What is a business’s most important asset?
You may think cash, obviously. But, it's actually your employees. Yes, your employees. Why are employees your most critical asset? The answer is simple. Without your employees, you don’t have a business! No employees = no business.
It's crucial to appreciate and value your employees. They are critical to you, your business, your customers and ultimately can make or break your business. Your employees need to respected and ultimately treated like an asset. Thats because they are an asset to you and your business, you couldn’t do it without them.
Recognition is key for an employees hard work. Always be appreciative of your employees and make sure they are recognized for their hard work. With work comes a common problem - overextending your employees scope of work. Don’t make this mistake. An overworked or an employee overextending to do work outside of their scope quickly becomes a bad situation.
How do I not overextend my employees? Simply put - remember their scope. A dedicated cashier shouldn’t be cleaning toilets at the end of the day, mopping the floors, taking out trash while trying to attend to customers all day. Leave the professionals to do the rest. A chef should be focused on making the best possible meal, you should consider a cleaning company to focus on your cleaning - not your chef. Not only will your business run much smoother your employees will thank you.
It’s also a good rule of thumb to remember not to overextend your scope of work as well (which is easily forgotten) - whether you are the owner, manager, etc…
Remember that delegating tasks that are within your scope will do wonders for yourself, your employees, the company morale and ultimately will lead to less headaches in the long run. Your employees will thank you.
