It’s that time of year. Companies are either in the process of setting 2019 goals or have just completed their goals. And some don’t even know where to start.

If you’ve set your goals, have you communicated them to everyone at the company? Does every employee know how their role contributes to achieving 2019 goals? Communication is the first step to achieving your goals.

Documenting processes and making sure they align to company goals is the best way to ensure everyone contributes and knows the meaning of success. This allows everyone to focus on a measurable outcome that will add to the company’s bottom line. Giving employees a reason for doing their job helps them feel that their work has meaning, which reduces turnover.

Want to grow in 2019? Great, document how work is done to make it easier to onboard & train new employees. Looking to streamline and cut costs in 2019? Reviewing, documenting, and improving existing processes can increase capacity and help realign employees. No matter your focus in the new year, standardizing processes can help achieve your goals.

Are you feeling overwhelmed at the thought of meeting your goals for 2019? Have you decided to just keep doing “business as usual” because you’re able to keep the lights on and pay your employees?
