The first step towards cementing a successful year ahead is taking time to establish a plan aimed at making your company run smoothly and effectively.
Having an effective plan to ensure your business will run smoothly is the first step to ensuring success for the year ahead. With Express Employment Professionals on your side, you can develop an effective strategy that will help your business thrive in the new year.
Reflect on the previous year
Looking at the year gone by is the first step in creating an effective plan for the new year. Break down the challenges your business faced and how you overcame them (or didn’t). Dissecting these challenges can help you come up with a defensive strategy for the future. Learning from what worked and what didn’t will allow you to solve potential problems proactively.
Plan with your team
Bring your team into the planning process. They are likely to have valuable contributions based on their personal experiences over the year and be able to offer solutions to potential upheavals.
Take a look at the calendar
Look at the upcoming year and, specifically, public holidays. Know when schools will be closed for the holidays. This will give you some insight into when staff are likely to take leave and help you plan for those times. Remember that staff will likely take a break over long weekends like Easter too.
Prepare for when your staff are on leave
Knowing when you are going to be short-staffed, allows you to plan for bringing on temp staff to support your business. Temporary workers are a great addition to any team, since they are trained and qualified and able to fit right in when needed. By working with temporary staff through a staffing provider, you are saved the task of training new team members and adding them to your payroll, since they are sourced and paid through the provider.
