Finding an employee who is underperforming is not the end of the world, but identifying this quickly is the best way to make improvements and increase the staff member’s productivity.
Use Cash Flow Forecasting
Cash flow forecasting is a great way to compare your actual business performance to what you expect your staff to sell. This can be the perfect tool to see whether your staff or underperforming, overperforming, or performing just right!
Using cash flow reports will allow you to see how much money you should spend. You can then check how much money should be coming into the business and what profit you should make. Once the month is finished, you can compare this to your actual figures. Obviously if figures are only marginally out, there is no need for you to panic. However if your income takes a significant drop, it should be addressed.
Cash flow forecasting is also a great way for you to keep track of ongoing customer payments. You will never have an issue with the possibility of customers not making payments on time. With correct cash flow forecasting, you can see exactly when customer payments should come in.
Creating Revenue Targets & Goals
Having realistic expectations of what your business should be achieving is important to keep the performance of your staff members at a high-level. Coleman & Co can help your business create budgets and forecasts for your business so you know how much you should be spending weekly and monthly to keep profits high.
It can be difficult to set the right targets to your employees first time round as there is a fine line between a hard target to reach and one that is completely unrealistic. By finding the right targets and also offering bonuses and rewards your staff actually want to win, your business could soar. Using cash flow reports can help you measure the success of targets and whether your targets need to be raised or lowered to increase productivity.
Maintaining High Morale
Not everybody likes work and it doesn’t help if the morale of your workplace is always negative. Keeping morale high is something that must be done to maintain good performance from all your staff members. This can be done in several ways:
- Celebrate Accomplishments
- Keep Communication High
- Offer Rewards & Incentives
- Team Building Events
Everyone wants to have fun when they get to work. However, you must find the right balance between working hard and giving your staff exactly what they want. If you offer rewards in any shape or form on a regular basis, staff are more likely to work hard to achieve the targets they require. This also means they are happier at work because they know they are working towards something extra.
Make sure your staff are generating enough revenue for your business to make a healthy profit. When you seek help with your finances or want advice regarding your business performance and how to improve, call Coleman & Co today on 028 9266 3599.
