Get your office staff organized!

I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a staff that is organized. If you are disorganized and you have support staff that is disorganized, you are putting your business at risk for losing clients, time, money, and your reputation will be on the line.

When interviewing potential candidates, look for skills and qualities listed on their resume such as ‘efficient, productive, multi-tasking, and able to work independently’.  Be sure to screen them as best you can when it comes to questions about how organized they are.

When you are busy and need to push work downstream you want to have a staff that will be able to jump in and take over with little supervision. You want to be able to have confidence that if you give them a task they will be able to handle it and handle it well. The key is to have a staff that is organized.

If you are organized, set an example for your employees.

  1. Have policies and procedures in place so when new people are hired they know what is expected of them and they know what your company represents.
  2. Hold monthly meetings so your staff is on the same page with company happenings.Keep office desks streamlined and organized. Disorganization causes unwanted stress.
  3. When clients visit they don’t want to see disorganization. It doesn’t present well.
  4. Organized people are more efficient, productive, and can multi-task. Why wouldn’t you want to hire an organized person?
  5. If you are disorganized, it is best you find an assistant that is organized or chaos will take place and you won’t be able to get out of each other’s way.  Disorganized staff will create more work for you and your business will suffer because of it.

Having a support staff that is organized will make your life easier and you will be able to focus on the important issues that you need to deal with on a daily basis. Your business will become more productive and efficient, saving you time and money and in turn increasing your revenue.
