Ready, Steady Go!!

There is no ignoring the current situation that we find ourselves in with the uncertainty of this pandemic. However, this can also be an opportunity to decide, and to actively plan for, how you would like to see your organisation operating once we get back to an element of normality.

As well as considering what markets you wish to target and how you can generate efficiencies through introducing modern technologies, it is key to ensure that your employees have the skillset to maximise your organisation's performance.

Get it right and watch your growth plans flourish.   Get it wrong, and you might reduce your growth opportunities, your customer service levels may dip, you may lose clients and you may waste thousands of pounds due to absenteeism, underperforming employees and having to replace disgruntled employees who have skills which you don't want to lose.

Now is a critical time to make sure that your employees are pointing in the right direction to enable you to achieve your goals and to prepare for growth.

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.  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, eg, making sure that managers are confident in managing their teams.

5)    Getting your house in order - Make sure that you have robust contracts of employment and HR policies and procedures in place which are not just legally compliant but also support your future goals.


By investing in your employees at an early stage, it may mean the difference between reducing your opportunity for business growth, potentially losing your best employees and building stronger working relationships with your employees, your clients and increasing those profits.
