Productivity and Returns Increase through Motivated Employees

For most small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), governance is something far away. In other words, measures of good governance are not yet part of daily practice. Particularly explosive growth and/or external demands, for example from an external financier, have changed this to date. Especially to make the likelihood and impact of risks manageable. Oddly enough, because fundamentally every entrepreneur wants to be successful and certainly not fail. Thus, corporate governance aimed at SMEs is actually relevant for every entrepreneur: it is about having control over realizing entrepreneurial ambition. And there's quite a lot involved. Therefore, we will be paying ample attention to this unexplored area in the world of the entrepreneur in the coming period.

Today, Route ICR shares the eleventh article from the series 'How to practically implement SME governance'.

Productivity and Returns Increase through Motivated Employees

Amsterdam, December 1, 2021 - Entrepreneurship is simple. But the hardest thing is to keep entrepreneurship simple. But why is that? Let's discuss this in the coming period and also look at how this problem can be solved. Today, Route ICR shares the eleventh article in the series 'How to practically implement SME governance'.

Motivated employees ensure that productivity and returns improve. To achieve this, it greatly helps if the 9 ICR growth principles are adopted. And this is feasible within every SME organization, as the practical online Route ICR web application supports the application of these principles. This makes it easier for employees to think along and contribute to a shared vision and approach for the company. And it is precisely this that ensures that everyone is on the same page. And stays that way. This has a positive effect on involvement and motivation, provided you are continuously engaged with it.

Setting Goals and Being Innovative

Actually, SMEs lend themselves very well to continuously working on an organization that runs like a well-oiled machine. The small scale offers the chance for a strong bond of trust with each other and for flexibility. And with that, the opportunity to work intensively together and to respond to changes in the market & society. Setting goals together, making plans to achieve these goals, and above all, being innovative. Innovative in all areas. In addition to innovations in product and/or service, also innovative in the application of ICT possibilities, the use of HR tools, the execution of processes, etc. In short, tapping into the talents of your employees. And if you do what you enjoy and are good at... that's very good for motivation!

Using Progressive Insight in Process Optimization

And then execute the plans to achieve the set goals. A well-oiled machine doesn't just happen. It is a process that always continues. Where you continuously learn from and with each other. This progressive insight is used to further optimize processes. You gain insight by measuring actual performance and comparing it with the performance you expected from your plans. And you do this for a reason, because more productive teams don't just happen. Learning from what doesn't go well, but also learning from what does go well.

Celebrate Big and Small Successes Together

Once you commit together, the implementation of SME governance in practice only tastes like more. Therefore, definitely celebrate all big and small successes together. Because good effort and hard work are important, but it's just as important to enjoy together what has been achieved. Thus, motivated employees lead to higher productivity and higher returns.

Entrepreneurs take risks and are incredibly important for our economy. Unfortunately, a good balance between work and private life is often lacking. It is precisely this that drives Paul Joore to have a positive impact on the lives of entrepreneurs and contribute to their success. Paul is the ambitious founder of the online Route ICR platform for successful entrepreneurship. He is also the author of the entrepreneurship book ‘Succesvol groeien doe je zo!’ (Successful Growth, How to Do It!). "I believe in setting seemingly unattainable goals. Challenging oneself, innovating, and constantly improving. Supported by a well-structured organization." Paul has tens of thousands of flight hours in the business world, with a background as an entrepreneur, coach, interim manager, and former chartered accountant. Always focusing on realizing challenging goals as effectively and efficiently as possible: in other words, being successful through being inControl, in the entire process from true ambition to result. This only works by thinking, planning, and acting from a goal-oriented structure. In the SME sector, there was a lack of knowledge and experience in this area, and well-thought-out solutions were not available. Therefore, Paul decided to create this himself. In many SME businesses, the 'madness of the day' reigns. As a result, entrepreneurs are not inControl when it comes to achieving goals, let alone challenging ones. Therefore, they also do not realize their true ambition. Worse, for many, this ambition is not even crystal clear. And how can you work towards a goal without having a real one? Logically, there can also be no balance between work and private life. And no balance means no rest. So, the Route ICR web app helps entrepreneurs and teams to be inControl in the entire process from ambition to result. With the ICR "InControlRating" of your business as a growth compass. Very clear and handy to know through one number how your business is and will be doing. So you know whether you will achieve your goals and be successful from this starting point. And if the score is disappointing, you also know what to work on to improve. This way, you gradually work towards a better balance in your life, feel good about yourself, and have a positive mindset! Are you curious? You too can experience the Route ICR web app for 14 days free of charge, without obligations!
