Why Are Offices Such A Nightmare To Run?!
If you don’t run an office at the minute… well then you wouldn’t be reading this article 😉
Whether you own your own company, are just an office manager, or would really like a career in the role, you must know how hard it is. The pressure of having to perform for the company, as well as keep everyone in the office happy and productive is just draining. But we do think there are ways of reducing the pressure somewhat.
The more time you spend in the role, the more you become accustomed to the pressure it brings. But that doesn’t mean that you should have to put up with it for years to come. So we want to address all of the people who might be running an office, from the people who own the company, to the people who might be doing it in the future. It doesn’t have to be so hard, and here’s how you could make it easier.
The Business Owner
The business owner is one of the most stressed people in the world, and all of you people reading this will understand. Because as soon as you start your own business and move into your first office, you become the boss of both.
Now, trying to deal with both can be a little bit of a headache, especially if your business is perhaps struggling at the minute. So, have you ever considered Virtual Services. You could literally take your office virtual, and have all of the nitty gritty of it moved online, taking the stress away from your daily life. There would be people to answer your calls and deal with your problems, and it’s far less expensive than having people in your office.
But, if you’re already passed the stage of a one man band, and your office is slowly growing, then you should definitely think about employing an office manager!
The Office Manager
The office manager has to be one of the most respected people in the company. Or at least they should be. They don’t earn the most, but they most definitely do the most. Companies just don’t take their office managers for granted.
Now, if you are one, we think we have one very good solution to your problems. And this is a great line of communication. The more you communicate with the owner of the company, and the more you work together to find solutions, the easier managing the office is going to be.
Even if you don’t feel like you can approach them at the minute, you’re going to have to find a way to break that barrier!
The Future Managers
For all you future managers out there, we think there are a few skills you need to make sure you have locked down before you go into the role, the main being communication! You have to know how to communicate with a range of different people, and how to put your views across.
It can sometimes be hard to control a room of people if you can’t even effectively communicate with them.
