Engaged employees work with greater passion and perseverance. As part of Administrative Professionals Week, Wednesday marks Administrative Professionals Day, a day dedicated to recognizing the work of secretaries, receptionists, administrative assistants, and other administrative support professionals. In honor of this holiday, we’re going to highlight some of the ways that a company’s executive team can show their employees that they appreciate their work and boost employee engagement.
Accountability is a key component of successful companies. When your teammates are responsible for certain tasks and take ownership of their roles, you know that stuff will get done. Organizations today strive to have a culture where employees are proud of their work and know exactly what they need to do to propel the company forward. To scale up successfully and see consistent growth, learn techniques to increase accountability in your company.
Team alignment affects how your employees work together on a day-to-day basis, but it can have huge effects on your overall company culture. When your team is aligned around similar priorities and works well together, you can create an environment that fosters cohesion and easily attracts new hires.
Research shows that employees spend about 31 hours per month in unproductive meetings. While there are plenty of ways to improve your team meetings, many managers are switching to a Daily Huddle to help their teams be more productive.
If your team is not communicating in a consistent rhythm, it can be difficult for everyone to stay aligned to the same overall company priorities. Many organizations struggle to find a meeting rhythm that allows their team members to maximize their time and retain an efficient flow of information.
Many companies employ the core fundamentals of the Rockefeller Habits in their daily business practices to keep their team aligned to their goals. The habits focus on three main factors which business leaders need to be aware of and incorporate into their strategy: priorities, data, and rhythm.
Successful companies are always looking for ways to improve their productivity and efficiency to maximize their bottom line. With only so many hours in a day, they are constantly on the hunt for strategies to make the most of their time and avoid unnecessary or redundant activities. By making improvements in two strategic areas, you can greatly eliminate redundancy in your company.
