Every business has challenges when it comes to staff and HR issues—yours is no exception! Many businesses struggle with staff problems, but it doesn’t have to ruin your forward progress. As an UPbook member business, all you have to do is re-focus your game plan to deal with these issues and get back to doing what you do best.
Let’s take a look at three of the most common staff issues that affect UPbook businesses and how to go about correcting them.
Challenge: Hiring Quality Staff
It’s often hard to find well-trained, competent professionals who fit within the culture of your business. Make no mistake: while there’s no magic formula, those people do exist!
Here’s a solution you may not have thought of: improve your UPbook business’s workflow to see more appointments per hour. Do it right, and you’ll be seeing four, five, six, or more clients every hour! That increase in revenue is significant—you’ll make enough to offer the professionals a higher salary than your competitors. That does two things: it allows you to pick from the cream of the crop, and it keeps those employees secure since they’re not likely to look for employment elsewhere.
Challenge: Conflicting Personalities
Sometimes, your existing staff causes problems as well. Let’s face it: there’s bound to be bad apples in every batch. Personalities don’t always mesh well. How do you resolve the issues before your UPbook business has a toxic work environment on its hands?
Remember: culture eats strategy for breakfast. Improve the culture of your business, and staff issues will disappear. It’s up to you to foster a culture of collaboration, friendliness, and respect at all times. That way, your UPbook member business will reduce staff issues and personality conflicts at the outset.
Challenge: Improving the Front Desk
Many business want to improve their front desk. Fortunately for you, UPbook is here to help solve your problems! A performance-based system related to the scores your front-desk staff will receive through UPbook is best. When employees are incentivized to perform better because of a reward structure based on performance, they perform better because they want to, not simply because they’re told to. Utilize the power of the UPbook program and keep front-desk staff on-script at all times, and you’re likely to see front-desk performance skyrocket.
You’re not alone when it comes to HR challenges. Fortunately, all it takes is a little re-focusing for your UPbook business to get back on track and get things working smoothly again. Don’t give up!
