Every New Year’s Eve, people set personal resolutions for the upcoming year. They resolve to go on a diet; drink less; stop smoking; get a new job, etc.
But what about your business? Can you establish some New Year resolutions for your company?
Here are some business resolutions you can implement in 2016:
- Appreciate your customers. When is the last time you “thanked” your customers for their business? Get into a better habit of sending thank you notes; call your customers and tell them how much you appreciate them. Let them know how awesome they are!
- Invest more in your staff. This doesn’t necessarily mean a salary raise or additional bonuses, but there are other things you can do to help your employees grow which, in turn, will help your business. Consider additional training; allow them to attend local and regional conferences; give them additional responsibilities and roles (with less micro-managing).
- Re-evaluate your company and its core competencies. Why do you have a loyal customer base and a great talent workforce? Identify what’s important and secure your company’s foundation for the upcoming year.
- Growth. What is your ideal business growth for the upcoming year? Set some goals and break them down into smaller, achievable chunks.
Prepare and plan now for 2016. Stick to your resolutions and invest in your customers/clients and your employees. Reinforce your company’s core values. Approach the new year with a “look out, here we come!” attitude.
