Reflections – and a Look Ahead

avatar
With 2015 drawing to a close, we’re looking back and pausing to be thankful for our clients and colleagues. It is our good fortune to work with business people who are both smart and good.  They work to help their organizations operate in what we at McBassi think of as “the sweet spot” – the intersection of profitable and enlightened management of employees.  This, in turn, builds the foundation for creating sustainably profitable relationships with customers – thereby generating win-win-win outcomes.

As we look forward to 2016, we expect that our clients’ commitment to finding and creating these all-win solutions will become even more profitable in the future than it already has been in recent years.

The challenges we face – as individuals, families, communities, and societies – are daunting and well-known to all of us.  More and more, savvy business people across the globe realize that business must increasingly become a part of the solution (while simultaneously being a source of the problem less frequently) – and that doing so can actually be quite profitable.

So as we wrap up the year, we’d like to leave you with a thought we hope you can use to make 2016 both a good and profitable year.  In these times of extraordinary uncertainty, there is money to be made by creating more certainty and less risk.  In thinking about your business, are there changes that could be made at little or no cost to reduce uncertainty for your employees?  How might you tweak your hiring, onboarding, development, scheduling, performance review, or compensation/benefits policies to reduce unnecessary uncertainty for employees (or prospective employees)?

The mere act of asking questions like this can be powerful.  And finding the answers?  That can set the stage for what we hope will be a satisfying and profitable new year for you!
