New Year’s resolutions for your small business

With the New Year fast approaching, now is the best time to start thinking about your business and what resolutions you will set. Reflecting on the past year, learning from your mistakes and setting targets to what you want to achieve in 2018 to ensure your business growth is the best yet.

When you think about the typical resolutions they include things such as stop smoking, losing weight, saving money, spending more time with the family etc. However, we want you to make decisions on improving your business and below are some examples of what you could choose:

Managing cash flow efficiently and effectively

By learning the day-to-day finances and controlling them, this will increase capital and decrease liabilities, improving the year-end profit and creating less pressure and more reward.

Improve your marketing by expanding out onto social media

This may be something that has been avoided in the past but with technology increasingly becoming dependable, it is vital for you to invest time into promoting your company over social media to increase results.

Becoming a better communicator

Ineffective communication can cause many problems in companies large or small. Developing on this may decrease workplace stress, reoccurring problems and forming better relationships with employees and clients.

Improving your service

By taking on any negative feedback received in the past or throughout the year and acting upon this, it will avoid any similar complications and may make your business better by turning the negatives into positives.

Setting frequent, realistic targets

Creating targets motivates yourself and staff to achieve goals that can furthermore contribute to the company by ensuring the highest expectations are achieved whilst improving productivity.

We hope we have got you thinking about what resolutions you want to achieve in 2018 and we wish you the best of luck in fulfilling them!

What our clients say about us

We usually use recruitment agencies, however for this particular vacancy it seemed more appropriate to try a cheaper recruitment option. In setting up the initial advert it was very easy and quick, and the staff at ThatRecruit were very helpful and efficient in coming back to me and in authorizing the advert. The software to manage the vacancy was easy to use and the ability to mark candidates with a status was helpful. As an improvement it would be useful to be able to select all those marked as rejected and be able to bulk message them with a decline message or have an option to allow the candidates to see their status. Overall it’s been easy to manage this recruitment placement through ThatRecruit and we had an exceptional response to the advertisement with 72 applicants and having to close the advert early.
