Running a successful Qrew can be challenging but it is crucial to the success of any business that relies on a fluctuating workforce.
Once you overcome the challenges of building the Qrews you need, you need to manage their time, tasks as well as the quality of the work.
Below are four tips to optimize your workforce efficiencies so you can deliver your project on time and on budget each and every time.
- Effective Communication. Communication is fundamental to the effectiveness of a team. Without effective communication, everything breaks down. If you want to run an efficient workforce , you need to communicate well with your team. Your messaging needs to fit the learning styles within your Qrew. There are three types of learning; the hands on approach, audio learning, and visual learning. Do not assume that everybody understands what you want by just telling them. Highlight all three when assigning tasks. Tell your Qrew what you need, show them what you require, and shadow them for a moment to ensure that they understand. When you use uQrew, you can communicate important job details to multiple Qrews with just a few clicks, rather than wasting hours on texts or phone calls to each Qrew member. This will allow you to spend more time on site, interacting with your clients and team in person.
- Performance Objectives. Give your teams goals. Sounds simple enough, but you would be surprised by how many leaders tell their teams to build or produce; without giving them specific measurable objectives. It is important for each worker to understand how their work will be evaluated throughout the project. This will help ensure quality and will also motivate them. This is especially true if you acknowledge their successes. For instance, if a worker completes a paint project to your specifications, and you give them a 5 star review on the uQrew app, this will encourage them to perform well on their next project with you.
- Performance Reviews. Reviewing individuals within your team on a regular basis helps to bridge knowledge gaps or motivate your team to continue performing at high levels. Performance reviews allow you to gauge how your Qrew enjoys their work, and pinpoint ways to improve the overall team. You may have a Qrew member that excels at a job, and you can help them replicate themselves with the rest of the team from a skill standpoint. Conversely, you may find that a team member just needs a bit more training in an area to help them reach the levels of the rest of your team. Schedule regular performance reviews to help your crew develop consistency. That consistency leads to happy team members.
