While everyone is wishing for a healthy mind and body, business owners desire a healthy and sound business. Though financial statements show the financial health of a certain business, they cannot exactly tell the total health and wellness of such business. This is because a healthy business doesn’t only means a company that has the biggest assets, net worth, sales or profit, but a business that has the biggest heart, intention and purpose. A healthy business is not only one which is in a good financial shape, but also a business that shapes the lives of its customers, employees, its owners and even the economy as a whole. Here are tips and ways on how you can make your business a healthy one.
Be a healthy businessman
A healthy business has a healthy owner. Have wellness in your mind, heart and body. Though running and operating an enterprise needs time and focus, you still need to have enough time and rest for recovery. Besides, the people who take enough rest and sleep are the ones who are more productive than the others. So cope your stress and learn how to relax. A calm heart and brain are more effective and efficient in making business decisions, managing employees, and dealing with customers.
Create healthy relationship with your people
Relationships are some of the conditions that are not shown in the financial statements. To assure the health of you business, be sure to become a better manager and leader to your people, that is, your employees and workers. Preserve justice and equality inside your workplace. Be a motivated and a good role model employer to motivate your employees. Don’t be greedy, but be generous to make your people happy. Remember that your joy and their happiness combined equals productivity and stability.
Produce healthy products and services
Sell and offer products that make your customers’ lives better. Provide value and usefulness. Healthy products are not only goods and services that offer physical health to customers, but also financial, economic and total wellness to them both in the short term and in the long-term. To make this happen, quality should always be present on your company. Further, quality also means quality products, price, access and information. On this times where the global economy is stiff, a reasonable price could be healthy to their pocket.
Maintain healthy customer service
A healthy relationship with your employees is a must to promote your business productivity. Also, a healthy relationship with your customers is a must to improve your business profitability. What businesses provide to their customers are not only the main products which are priced for the money. There should be extra products, services and care that must also be delivered to them. These include simple things, such as a good accommodation, a simple smile and greetings, availability of customer support, and other simple extra services that will increase their satisfaction.
Making a business healthy is just similar as making our body well and sound. We’ve got to start strengthening what’s inside our business. We need to start at the core principles of our enterprise. We must begin by ensuring the quality of our products, the harmonious relationship within our workplace, and the wellness within ourselves. Just like when you want to have a healthy physical body, you need to start the wellness inside it, instead of beatifying it from outside. Take note that lasting health is achieved by starting from inside, and not from the outside. Thus, if your business is healthy inside, expect productivity, profitability and stability to follow.
