As 2021 has been bringing more opportunities for businesses, it also raises the question: Does your business need a “Spring Clean” to provide the best environment in this time of pandemic? Think about it in terms of not only hygiene, but in organizational efficiency.
Company leaders can pump new life into an organization by transferring this springtime routine to the workplace. Here are 5 Spring Cleaning Principles that can help your business:
Clear out the clutter.
Think about business activities that no longer add value to your organization. If products or services have outlived market demand, sweep them out. It may be a difficult decision, but clear the clutter and focus your business energy on what will be hot in the coming quarters.
Hire some help.
If you’re committed to a thorough cleaning, you may want to call in expert help to make sure nothing is overlooked. It’s not unusual for people to hire housekeepers, tree-trimmers, landscapers and other service providers to enhance spring cleaning. In the business world, it’s a good idea to bring in an objective third party to identify organizational clutter; hire an expert who has done the same for other companies.
Martha Stewart is an entrepreneur who has made a living out of turning old hats into centerpieces and broken chairs into plant holders. Apply this type of thinking to your employees. Some of them might be happier and more useful if you thought of a different way to leverage their talents.
Dust off your mission statement.
Evaluate whether your mission and vision still match your company’s strategic goals given how much the markets have changed.
Refresh your colors.
There are dozens (seems like hundreds) of home design shows on TV, and most recommend repainting rooms to give them new appeal. Maybe your brand could use a new look to give it a fresh appeal to customers. Don’t misunderstand–a brand is more than colors, shapes and logos. It represents your company’s value proposition and the expectations customers have when they encounter your company. However, if your company has begun to serve new markets in new ways, maybe it’s time to modernize the company’s brand.
Post a “pardon the dust” sign.
Anytime you start poking around the organization to improve it, employees will get nervous, especially in today’s economy. If your purpose in auditing the business’s operations is not to trim staff, reassure employees at the beginning of the process that you are on a mission to improve efficiency, not payroll. Then roll up your sleeves.
Organizational spring cleaning may not be an annual event, but each spring can serve as a reminder to look for ways to make your organization more effective.
