| Three’s (A Great) Company: Points To Improve Your Business

Posted in Small Business at 9:00 AM by Loftis Consulting

The necessity of manufacturing in the modern market is the same as it was 100 years ago, except for the fact that you need to multiply the output by a much larger amount to meet consumer demand! Each factory line setup is a model that has proved successful ever since it was implemented, but within this setup, there are three important things you need to have to make it successful, each are all important individually, but it’s the combined effect where you will feel it the most…


The Right Staff












Your employees are an important asset. They are the reason your business is doing well, but if your staff are not passing muster, or you are purely using people to make up the numbers it is a very slippery slope! Making sure the staff is kept up to date on important internal changes, and showing them a simple bit of appreciation at times will improve morale, and it will improve their productivity. Your staff is very important, but in a factory setting, it is very easy to view them as a group of people rather than individuals. And the only time someone would be singled out is for a bad reason, this is not proactive managing, and it is hurting the company. So make sure you appreciate them, and they will appreciate you more for it.


The Best Equipment













The damage a faulty piece of equipment can do is massive, on a physical level as well as from a productivity standpoint. The failure of equipment due to electricity faults or a poorly maintained machine will cause frustration for the line managers and increase anxiety everywhere else. While it’s easy to buy cheap machinery, will it go the distance? It’s unlikely. Generac industrial backup generators, for example, are a type of supplier that will help in these circumstances if there are electrical faults or unforeseen issues. Having peace of mind or a plan in place should systems fail will really help to keep the business running.


A Strong Business Ethic












With all the importance placed on equipment and staff, you can forget about how you view yourself in these types of operations. It is always too easy to get blindsided by “being the boss,” and it is never a look that suits anyone, especially if you are trying to run a company based on cooperation and unity. Having a clear view of the end product or the goal in your company is something you need to keep in your mind. The business plan is something that should seldom be strayed from because it can mean causing drastic change or trying something out on a whim that may not prove successful. It is hard to strike the right balance, but you need to realize that the company comes from your visions and goals, and you need to be able to implement them by leading from a strong ethical point of view. Leading by example is the best way to dictate a standard you would like set, so start to do it if you don’t already.
