Business Improvement Tips
Today we look at an article dated June 5th, 2018. In this article, Louis Chenevert gives tips in improving business by “investing” in employees. The article begins with a brief discussion about what goes through the minds of business owners who are looking to improve their business. It describes that many may look to technology or an outside source to make improvements. It goes on to say that, “investing in your current employees is perhaps the best way …” Then it lists several reasons why doing so can help improve business. One of the reasons mentioned is the familiarity of your current employee’s ability. Specifically, business owners “know what they [employees] can and can’t handle.”
The article moves on to talk about changes in the workplace. It describes that creating a more enjoyable workplace for employees will inspire employees to be more “productive”. Many business owners will obviously think about cost when it comes to investing in improvements. Louis Chenevert says that cost can be kept at minimal by simply adding a “ping pong table or an arcade game” at the workplace. This, in turn, can create a pleasing environment for the employees to enjoy their time while at work.
