We’re officially finished with the first quarter of 2018, and that means it’s time for your business to sit back and take stock of how you’re doing in your industry. How do your finances stand? What work is coming up in the pipeline? What kind of customer feedback are you receiving? What are market trends for the upcoming quarter?
But your business’ performance relies almost exclusively on its employees. Now is a great time take stock of your workplace culture. Are employees happy? What is the general vibe of your office? Do folks feel comfortable and at ease in their positions? What skills are your employees lacking? Are teams communicating effectively internally and with other departments?
Without effective communication, your business can come to a standstill. If employees can’t communicate thoughts, ideas, progress, and task delegation to one another in an effective manner, it’s next to impossible to deliver the type of product or service to your customers that they deserve.
