Bad Management is Costing Your Business and Health

With great things, comes big responsibilities. As a business owner or manager, it is inevitable that you have a lot of obligations, including how you choose to run the business. While it might be tempting to manage and run all operations of the company yourself, it is not always possible as it can be very overwhelming.

IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD PLANNING

Keeping an organized schedule can be challenging, but maintaining this practice and not falling into the laziness of doing shoddy scheduling can be even harder.

Keeping an organized schedule can be challenging, but maintaining this practice and not falling into the laziness of doing shoddy scheduling can be even harder.

What a lot of people don’t understand is that bad scheduling reflects the health of your business – as well as that of your employees.

Bad management practices generate several side effects, such as overloading your employees, and creating unnecessary conflicts and stress. In a survey, The Wall Street Journal reported that one-third of people surveyed considered quitting their jobs because of stress and 14 percent actually did. Besides that, workplace stress costs U.S. employers an estimated $200 billion per year in absenteeism, lower productivity, staff turnover, workers' compensation, medical insurance and other stress-related expenses.

COMMUNICATION

Everything revolves around communication, and when this part of the company is not functioning efficiently is when the structure of the organizations starts to break down.

It's not just the inner communications that matter- if someone doesn't collect all the information necessary to do a job, when the time comes to move forward there are missing parts that can affect the whole process.

SOLUTION

Instead of putting all the pressure on yourself to do all the dirty work, companies are evolving and trusting more in the technologies available to help them better manage their company, leaving fewer options for failure. 

A well-implemented workforce management system can increase efficiency, productivity, and engagement. Offering better tools for your employees can drastically effect the outcome results.

The main benefit of enterprise apps is the way they enhance productivity in the workplace. Mobile apps have been reported of 125% sessions growth in 2015. With the help of apps, you can speed up the company's process, improve training and offer a better customer service-generating additional business revenue.

Apps like littlefleets can offer remote access to important documents, submit information on clients through their mobile devices, enable employees to get extra work done faster and without the hassle of paperwork.

Communication among employees or with customers can be improved on in several ways. Facilitating the exchange of information even when they’re in an outside job is very helpful and puts the company ahead when it comes to customer service.

The benefits of mobile apps are many, but businesses are now benefitting from the many advantages that apps can bring to the workplace. Carry out daily tasks faster and more easily and bring companies new sources of revenue to help them differentiate themselves from their competitors.
