Steve and Alex talk with Errol Allen about the importance of having systems and procedures in place in order to maximize the efficiency of how your business runs. When you flow chart how you step through specific tasks in the office, inefficiencies can be pinpointed and fixed.
Training your employees properly allows you to hold them accountable for their performance. This also reduces turnover because employees have a clear understanding of what is expected. Documenting procedures is the key to properly train staff so they perform their tasks correctly every time. Task manuals show them exactly how to do their job. This also ensures that all clients receive the same experience and level of service regardless of which employee they are working with.
