As you get your business off of the ground, it’s only natural for you to want to expand. After all, the more you market, the more people are attracted to your business, both in and out of the market. And if you’re receiving all kinds of promising job applications, and you want to take a few up on their offer, you’re going to need to ensure you can coordinate your new team to the best of your ability.
So, it’s time to perfect your management skills – it’s said that almost 70% of managers have a hard time communicating with their employees; will you fall into the same trap? Let’s make sure you don’t, and instead, create an informed loop that keeps everyone in line.
Know the Importance of Regular Meetings
Regular meetings give you and your team the chance to stay in contact, face to face, at least once a week. It provides a chance for both big and small points to be brought out into the open, and shared with everyone who might need to hear them.
Meeting in a professional setting ensures that information is kept detailed and secured; no leaks, nothing missed out. If you make your company meetings mandatory to attend, you’ll never be out of the loop.
Provide Many Points of Contact
At the same time, ensure that you and your team can stay in touch outside of the office, or any other professional setting as well. If you can stay in touch no matter what time it is or where you are in the world, even a flexible or remote working environment will work out no problem.
So, get a groupchat. And be sure to get a project managing app, so you can see what each other is working on at the same time.
Work with the Cloud
The cloud can be very important to businesses. It’s a technological way to keep everyone in the loop, with little to no effort on your part. Within your office, 90% of the time is spent at a desk, in front of a computer, using software on it. How do you keep all of the products of this desk time in one place? You work with the cloud.
All you have to do is find the right cloud software, find the right package or pay for the necessary storage, and then ensure that everyone who needs it has access to it. It’s a simple upgrade to make, and you can build as secure a server as you need to.
You could then make use of enterprise document management systems, to tie into your cloud usage, especially if you’re planning to bring in more than one new employee. Plus, if you have office prepared templates to make use of, you can ensure that every single document is streamlined and kept neat, and understandable by all.
Are you and your employees up to date with each other? If not, it’s time to refine the system.
