When you’re thinking about changing up your business in order to improve it, there’s often a temptation to focus on the big stuff as much as possible. A lot of the time business owners assume that, in order to have a big impact on their business, they need to re-invent the wheel and make some absolutely massive, sweeping changes across the board. However, a lot of the time doing that is just going to cause more problems than it solves. Big changes to one part of your business often mean that you have to make some major adjustments to other in order to balance things out. Very often, if you really want to make improvements to your business without dealing with huge amounts of fallout from them, it’s best to focus on the little things. It might not always seem like it, but the little changes to your business can make a really big difference.
Here are just a few simple and small changes that you can make to your business that will have a much more significant impact than you might expect.
Adopt an open door policy
It might not seem as though this is going to make that much of a difference since it essentially changes nothing. But what many business owners don’t realize is that it, in fact, changes one thing very significantly. It changes the perception that your employees have of you. Far too many businesses have a focus on the hierarchy between boss and employees, but by showing that you’re willing to listen to the things that they have to say as well as being there to support them, it’s going to create a much more significant sense of loyalty among your staff.
Make space in your office
Nothing makes people less excited to work than the thought of feeling cramped and squashed all day. Even if there technically is space between your employees, it can often feel very uncomfortable if things are pretty close together. Look at your office and ask yourself what could be done to make it more spacious. If there are desks that aren’t being used, then there are always plenty of self storage units that you can store them in until you find a use for them. That way your employees will have more room to breathe, and the atmosphere in the office will improve significantly.
Filing is one of the biggest causes of problems and stress in many businesses. For one thing, filing cabinets often take up a lot of space, and they also are prone to get mixed up and untidy pretty easily. By going paperless and putting all of your filing onto digital servers and the cloud, you not only free up office space, but you also make it far easier for your employees to access all of their important files and data. This simple change really can have a remarkable impact on the productivity levels of your staff as they no longer have to waste time every day searching for individual files.
