Most owners and business leaders that I have asked the question “how was business in 2015?” respond that it was a tough year. Costs were higher, sales were lower and the profit margin slimmer. Most are quite happy to see the back of 2015.
The scary thing is most of these people also don’t have a solid answer to the question “ What are you going to do differently in 2016 to ensure you don’t get the same results?
Business owners and business leaders need to look at doing things differently because if you keep doing the same thing you will get the same results.
Businesses need to take stock and look back on what they have achieved, what was good, what was bad and what they can do better. This often takes an outsider to come in and review the business. At HR Lead Consulting we are a brand new Consultancy business that is determined to help improve your business. We believe the life-blood of a business is its people, but the people can only thrive if all the systems and processes work in harmony with the people and enable them to do their job.
- Do you have the right selection process?
- Do you induct your staff so they can succeed from day 1?
- Do you have formal training systems in place that add value?
- Do your staff ‘act’ as owners?
- Do you have the rights policies and procedures in place to protect you and your staff?
- Are you paying them correctly?
- Do you have the right span of control for your supervisors?
- Do you have the right organizational structure?
- Could you benefit from insourcing, outsourcing, offshoring, centralizing, de-centralising?
- Are your processes LEAN?
When you are reviewing last years performance, are you looking at all of the facets of your business in an objective way? Often this is difficult. Often leaders and owners are so entrenched in the ‘work’, they find it difficult to see what’s hindering ‘great’ performance.
We are ready to help you plan your year to ensure your people processes and systems are set up to get better results.
We wish all a very merry Christmas and look forward to helping you achieve more in 2016.
