What can Owner Actions help you take on?

Setting clear expectations.

Employees thrive when they have a clear understanding of the rules, expectations, and environment in which they conduct their work. Leaders should model these elements each day, but they should also convey them verbally—and in writing—to firm up their employees’ understanding and ensure compliance.

Employee handbooks are tools you can use to inform and instruct your employees. Learn how to create one for your business in the guide below.

Showing them you care.

One of the best ways to attract and retain your employees is by offering them benefits they value. Health insurance, retirement savings, paid time off, and cash incentives are some of the options you might consider to become an employer of choice, and perks, such as flexible work arrangements,  employee discounts, and educational allowance, are often well received.

Interested in learning more about the benefits you could offer? Read our guide to get started.

Finding ways to save.

Labor costs may be one of your business’s biggest expenses. But drastic cuts can harm your business by limiting your ability to respond to demand, capitalize on opportunities, and pivot in ways that will help your business succeed over the long term. Further, cuts can demoralize your team and reduce their productivity. 

Fortunately, there are ways to reduce your labor costs and minimize these risks. Learn about strategies that can help you with this tough task.
