The new year is well and truly underway, and you know what that means - it's time for many of us to return to work after the well-deserved annual summer break.
If you're a small business owner, not only are you responsible for your own working motivation, but also the satisfaction of your employees. It's not always easy to keep your workforce engaged and excited by their jobs. To get your year off to a good start, a few positive operational tweaks can make a huge difference to you and your staff.
Help your workforce set and achieve individual goals
January is the time of year where we love to make lists, whether they are ways to improve our health, places we'd like to visit or simple productivity improvements. As an employer, you can boost the productivity and general happiness of your staff by helping them lock down some unique challenges for them to strive for.
Before you get too far into the new year and your business gets back up to full steam, scheduling some time with each of your employees is a great way to strengthen communication and get a sense of what they'd like to achieve in the coming months.
Improve your own productivity with effective software
