Everyone who undergoes a business simply wants to focus and prioritize the factors that will bring them more profit such as maximizing their sales, running a successful marketing strategy, looking forward for a better source of products and of course, finding a way to gain more customers. And due to the fact that there are so many strategic plans and goals that needs to be put first, it is no longer a shocker that oftentimes, smaller influences were usually forgotten or not being noticed at all. Despite of the different strategic goals that needs to be focused on, it is very important not to neglect the small details and small influences since it still matters and would greatly affect your top priorities in strategic planning.
What you need is a balance; you don’t want to spend a lot of your valuable time carrying out mundane tasks like checking the stocks in the stationery supply cupboard. Another problem that people with business usually encounters is the time that they spend on their supplies because their own staff could barely do their own obligation with regards to the supplies that needs to be catered on. A quick spot check on the stationery supply chain should highlight any discrepancies, saving you unnecessary expenditure, and putting a stop to dishonest practices.
However, despite of the obligations that you carry, you should also be of good role model as a supervisor to all your staff and employees. If you ever find yourself a staff that could work on your stationery supplies, then it is advisable that you should also trust them with their work so that they may be able to feel the comfort working in your workplace. However, despite of trusting your staff with responsibilities, it is best to check them out once in a while in order for you to assess if how good they are at their job once they have already spent quite some time in your business and/or workplace. For example, you might see the potential for cost savings or ways of streamlining the task that hadn’t occurred to your employee.
In order to reassure that you staff and employees are working out to the highest standard that there is, it is really important to at least check whether they have the complete tools that are essential to their work. That could mean replacing standard keyboards with ergonomic versions, updating the office chairs, or providing better break facilities.
