Business owners are starting the new year just like the rest of us: by making resolutions. But these goals aren’t just about losing weight or exercising more. They’re about fixing problems with their companies, or coming up with ideas for working smarter in the coming year.
This week, AP Business writer Joyce Rosenberg rounded up some important New Year’s “business resolutions” in a piece aimed at helping businesses anticipating next year’s economic and workforce climate. These resolutions include:
• Spending more quality time with clients
• Protecting the company cash flow
• Firming up “unofficial” employee policies
• Working on the work/life balance
• Putting money into human assets
All of these practices, Rosenberg concludes, boil down to “taking better care of employees, clients, and kids.”
Take a peek at Rosenberg’s piece and see if any of these workplace resolutions could start your company off to a happier, healthier business year in 2010.
