The success of a business depends primarily on the effectiveness of its people. Key to creating that success is how you hire, train, motivate and reward workers.
Success will increase as you:
- Get employees to understand and appreciate the direction of the company;
- Let employees play a role in making decisions;
- Give employees respect and care.
A business must also adequately manage other assets that play a key role in its profitability and survival. They include technology, equipment, inventory and accounts receivable.
