Management Majesty – Updating Your Management Systems for 2017
  • Opening Intro -

    When you own a business, every decision is a big one.

    From selecting an office location to recruiting the best talent, investing in high-end software, and meeting with potential investors; the final word ends with you.

-------------------------------------

It is a lot of pressure, but you’re not alone with the job. If you’re lucky enough to have built up a skilled, reliable team, you can utilize their strengths.

Currently, New Zealand is in the middle of a startup explosion, so there are plenty of opportunities for small, highly efficient operations. However, you’ve got to convince the big market players that you’re a profitable prospect and worthy of funding. That takes organization, dynamism, and whole lot of ambition, so it’s time to motivate your workforce.

This guide to creating bigger, faster, stronger management systems will help your business to shine in 2017.

Consider Going Virtual

One of the biggest corporate trends right now is for remote and virtual work. Providers likeServcorp Virtual Offices have facilities in all the major New Zealand cities. The idea is that tenants ‘drop in’ to a shared workspace and access the resources whenever and however they like. So, these communal suites are ideal for entrepreneurs without a dedicated office and they are highly valuable for small teams trying to expand into new regions.

Invest in Local Talent

You could have the slickest, fanciest office and the most expensive software in the world, but if you don’t have the right employees, it doesn’t mean anything. If you’re lucky enough to work out of a big city like Wellington or Auckland, you should be scouring the local talent pool for highly skilled individuals. Make sure, particularly in the case of entry-level graduates, that the opportunity for progression is always evident.

Put Employees First

Once you’ve built the perfect team, you need to keep it that way. You can do this by making sure that your employees are happy and confident in their roles. While you may be the owner and founder, you don’t run the company alone, so your success belongs to them too. Create an internal culture which rewards innovation, creative thinking, and commitment to the values of the brand and business. If you’re not sure what you workers need, just ask them.

Always Be Available

In this day and age, it is not difficult to operate a business which is available 24/7. Even in Auckland, where life moves much slower than in other international cities, it is possible to stay in touch with customers round the clock. It is worth the time and money too because consumers expect constant connectivity. One of the easiest ways to keep the phones open is to hire a virtual receptionist. This is an outsourced, freelance professional who monitors and answers calls out of business hours.

Stick to Your Budget

It might sound like a lofty ambition, but you can get everything that your business needs and stay well within a tight budget. Virtual offices are the ideal solution because they provide a complete roster of corporate services in one ‘pay as you go’ package. You don’t have to sign any contracts. All you have to do is register and turn up to use mailboxes, receptionist services, IT support, boardroom spaces, media equipment, and more. 

Why Going Virtual Is the Key to Success in 2017

If you have never tried a virtual co-working space before, 2017 is the perfect time. While they aren’t the best option for all businesses, smaller outfits and entrepreneurial teams tend to thrive in these dynamic, collaborative environments. They are a great way to control costs, avoid lock in leases, and remain flexible, without compromising on the quality of your corporate resources.
