The holiday season are always a good time to focus on what matters. It seems almost by design that the end of the year is also a time to reunite with family and friends and people who have touched our lives over the years. The quiet reflection of the passing year’s friendships can often bring the most joy.
Yet even small companies are struggling to compete on a local landscape let alone a global scale. It seems that more businesses are competing for the same customer pool, and smaller businesses are working harder just to keep up. Trying to remain competitive within budget and with current staffing makes it tough to find much joy.
Yet it’s in our staff – the people who have worked hard alongside their employers – that we can find both joy and promise.
Take a look at your own employees. From the sales staff to the administrative support staff, there is dedication to not just any business, but to your business. It’s in how they give their best every day – not just for the paycheck, but for the success of what you’ve built. It’s in the new hire who is eager to learn. It’s in the front desk person who keeps the office running smoothly. It’s in the IT team, who work behind the scenes making sure your business stays online. And it’s in the veteran workers who have devoted their careers to bettering both your business and the industry as a whole.
It’s also in the remote workforce that is also working behind the scenes, oftentimes to further the goals of an employer they’ve never met face-to-face. We at WAHVE see that dedication in our remote workers every single day. They log on from their remote offices and they engage in making sure they give employers like you the very best they can bring to the job.
That’s no small thing. Our wahves are people who have already had successful careers. Yet something brought them back to the industry. They weren’t finished using their talent and experience, and they are looking for ways to contribute, albeit from a home office.
In many ways, these veteran workers are the unsung heroes of the industry. In fact, I would go so far as to say they could well be the answer to some of the issues small businesses have. These unseen retired and retiring workers are bringing back a wealth of skills to help your business thrive by removing some of the everyday obstacles that come with running a business. And they’re eager to reinvent their careers as they help improve your business.
As the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, we are reminded that new beginnings are possible. We can change our circumstances for the better. Maybe the promise of the new year lies in assessing where your business is and how you can augment your operations without massive internal changes or heavy investment. Maybe it lies in engaging people who have already proven their value and are waiting to make a difference for you.
May 2019 bring you renewed hope and continues prosperity.
