Over the last year, there have been many changes in the business world, and businesses of all sizes have learned many valuable lessons.
As the pandemic continues to shape policies, business owners are looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve.
In this week’s Let’s Talk edition, we asked experts to share the best lessons they learned in 2021, as well as their plans for the future.
“2021 was yet another challenging year for a lot of businesses. That didn’t make success impossible; it simply led to some lessons along the way. Pandemic or not, there are some business lessons I’ll carry with me no matter what the circumstances are.
Invest in culture: ‘Burnout’, ‘fatigue’, ‘The Great Resignation’; these are all terms you’ll have become familiar with if you’ve participated in discussions around culture and the pandemic. They’re all a very real threat if you don’t take care of the culture within your organisation.
Be agile: In a year where nothing was certain, we learnt that the ability to stop, regroup and execute a new direction was priceless.
Quality over quantity: Bolstering your business with quality clients allows you to complete quality work, adding value to your business. It allows your employees to focus and deliver rather than act mindlessly and burn out. Keep in mind that your clients contribute to your culture as much as your employees do."
