How to Stick to Your Company’s New Year’s Resolutions

New year, new me. That’s what most people say at the turn of the year. But by the end of January, their resolutions have disappeared into thin air. The same often applies in business, as many business owners focus on unachievable goals that get lost in the first few weeks back after Christmas.

That doesn’t have to be the case. Whether you want to improve your social media presence, boost your bottom line or expand and take on new staff, keep reading for our guide to sticking to business resolutions in 2020.

Company records

Start small

While we all want to double our turnover, reach a million followers or gain 100 new clients, it’s important to start small. By setting obtainable goals, you’re far more likely to stick to them and make them a reality.

Just as setting a goal to go to the gym every day is likely to last less than a week, you need to set company goals that you can maintain and meet. If, for instance, you want to decrease staff turnover by 50%, start by setting goals to implement an employee workshop or learning mentor.

Share the news

There’s very little point setting goals for your entire company if you’re the only one that knows about them. For some goals, like financial or developmental, you may not want to share the specifics with the rest of the team.

However, you can’t expect your employees to work towards your goals with you if they are unaware of them. It might be a good idea to set departmental or personal goals for staff, too, working in conjunction with overall aims to give yourself a better chance of making your goals a reality.

Make a plan

Huge company goals simply won’t happen overnight. It’s important to make a plan with key achievable points to make sure the entire team know what they are working towards. Detail each step and what you expect from members of your team, giving obtainable goals each month or quarter.

Make sure your store this document in an easy-to-access, shared storage system so all employees can regularly check their progression.

Stay positive

It can be difficult to make changes in your business, especially if they are controversial and don’t go down well with the team. But you need to remain positive and remember why you set the goals in the first place. Having memos around your desk and office can help keep you on track, as well as setting regular reminders to check the progression of your goals.
