How are your New Years’ resolutions going? Still going strong? Are you hanging on to what you sought out to do, to change, to reshape, to advance in better ways?
Another question… Have you ever applied a New Years resolution to your business?
Why you should get your business in shape
Shouldn’t we all be doing this? To set goals, to have the resolution to make your business better than the year before. For some businesses, this may be a challenge financially. You may even be stuck thinking there are things you just can’t change.
In some cases, that’s true. You can’t improve a business from nothing. For example, you can’t change that ridiculous monthly rent, and some utility costs change so little they may as well be fixed. But some things can change. Like how you schedule, employee morale, and turnover rates. Other things that can change include:
- sales to labor ratios
- time spent babysitting the clock
- unaccounted breaks
- employees riding the clock
- buddy punches
- and you and your managers’ wasted time
In the case of the items above, you CAN improve.
How to get started
A first step in the right direction is with TimeForge‘s scheduling and attendance features. TimeForge is kinda like a gym whipping your business into shape; it helps improve the little things that only slow up and tie down your business.
TimeForge is a labor management software application designed to not only do things like schedule your employees and track their attendance, but it also does the those small things that can get your business into tip top.
When you have a New Years resolution of losing weight, small things like walking more, using the stairs, eating more veggies, eating less sweets, and getting more sleep all work together to accomplish that goal. Same with growing and boosting your business’s bottom line… TimeForge starts out on the little things, like improving communication between managers and employees, saving time when building schedules, reducing employee turnover with positive morale, fixing costs with accurate attendance, and many more little fixes that culminate in one end result: making your business even better than it was before.
But in the end, taking those first steps for your business can seem daunting. That is why we offer a TimeForge free trial, so everyone has the opportunity to take those first steps for their business.
So, let’s get in shape for the beach – I mean the quarter.
Inspire others with your business resolutions – or even check out some of the TimeForge team’s resolutions.
