The Importance of Having the Right Team in Business

Posted 25 Oct '18

In order for your small business to thrive, you need reliable staff in the best possible positions. It’s one thing to hire the best fit on paper, but when it comes to building your dream team, it’s important to find team members who not only have the right skill set, but are also the right fit for your particular business culture.

Why is it so important to have the right team in business?

As a small business owner, you’re across all areas of your business, from your day to day operations to finance, marketing and sales. However, you can’t be everywhere at once and everything to all people IF you want to grow your business and sustain your business growth.

Having the right team in place ensures that you can deliver the quality service or product that you desire while being able to step away at times and have the peace of mind that your business will continue to thrive.

By having the right team you’ll retain:

  1. Your Customers. Your customers remain at the core of your business. Delivering a high standard of services with the right employees will help your client retention and overall brand.
  2. Sustainable Business Growth. While staff are of course an expense, when you have the right staff, they are what will allow you to expand your services and ultimately take your business to the next level.
  3. Your Sanity. Being a small business owner has it’s testing times. When you have a team to share the journey with, lean on for support and work with to a common goal every milestone is a little easier!

So, what about the latter? When you feel like your staff aren’t helping you kick goals.

  1. Revisit your business’ core values, mission and goals. Have you communicated what you’re wanting to achieve in your business with your staff? Do you regularly reiterate your goals and the vision of your company? If nobody knows what they’re working towards and why, it can be hard to be motivated. Leading by example is key.
  2. Communicate and Empower. By communicating effectively with your staff, they will know that they are valued. By asking for input and empowering them to offer suggestions it allows everyone to feel like a working member of a team.
  3. Set KPIs (key performance indicators). Have goal-based indicators that can help keep your staff on track to achieving their goals.
