With the New Year and new decade finally in full swing, business owners, entrepreneurs, and employees everywhere are committing themselves to new goals and aspirations that will carry them throughout a fruitful and lucrative professional year. Whether you’re a CEO, manager, or someone in-between, organizational culture at your company should be at the top of your list.
Why? Organization is the very foundation of your company’s ability to complete projects/requests on-time, and with top-notch quality.
Here are our 5 organizational culture tips for any company owner in 2020:
It has been proven, time and time again, that setting goals improves our focus, clarity, and therefore, success. As creatures of habit, we need schedules that help us complete our days. If we don’t set goals and clearly define what it is that we want to do and achieve in a given month or year, it’s not going to happen. Encourage your workforce to set small and large goals, with actionable steps that help them achieve those goals.
Talk About Time Tracking:
Tracking hours put into client projects and tasks, organizational tasks, etc. is the very basis of what you owe in payments every month. Be sure to discuss the importance of time tracking with your employees so they get a re-fresh on how they should be documenting their time at work. Consider a software that automates all of this.
People want to feel heard today – they want to feel like they are more than just warm body sitting at a desk. Taking the time to request feedback from your workforce will open up a dialogue that will provide you with valuable insight, while reaffirming your support of your workforce. If people feel like they are being valued and appreciated, they are less likely to leave your company or show up and do a poor job.
Do you have a vision for your business? What is it? Don’t keep it a secret from those helping you to achieve this vision. Make it public. Have weekly meetings where you discuss the vision and what everyone is doing to achieve this vision. Sometimes, clear and obvious communication is all that’s needed to get everyone on the same page.
Consider Workplace Flexibility:
The world is heading towards a decentralized gig economy, whereby everyone is going to work from home in the near future. Don’t resist this kind of organizational change – embrace it. Centralize structure in software so employees can work from home when they please. This will cut down on turnover immensely.
