When you sign up to run a Venture X office franchise, there will be plenty of work to be done. The good news is that you don’t need to do it all yourself. When you become a franchisee, you’ll be able to rely on your managers and employees to handle plenty of your day-to-day operations. Delegating tasks will help you to take more time for yourself focus on whatever is most important: family, hobbies, church — whatever it is that matters to you! Here are a few ideas for delegating tasks as a Venture X franchisee.
#1. Opening and Closing Routines
Develop a routine list of opening and closing procedures for your location. These could include things like sweeping and mopping, completing paperwork, preparing food in the cafe, and so forth. Different employees should be familiar with their role, and should understand what their role should be in completing these routines. For instance, managers should complete paperwork and other employees can take care of sweeping and mopping. Developing regular routines is a great way to keep your office franchise running like clockwork.
#2. Keep Experience in Mind
When delegating tasks to your employees, keep their level of experience in mind. It’s likely that employees who have worked with you for a long time can be trusted to complete more important tasks, like managing bookkeeping. As employees become more experienced, trust them with more important tasks and train them to complete them so that they can fill in or step up when needed. Honor your employees’ experience by trusting them to help you complete more important tasks, freeing you up to spend time on what’s important to you.
#3. Take Advantage of On-the-Job Training
Let your experienced employees help to share the work of training new employees. A great way to onboard new employees is by having them shadow more experienced employees, giving them the opportunity to see and experience the correct processes and procedures as they go. This hands-on experience will have a big impact on your new employees, and will minimize the amount of time they need to spend completing initial training before getting out on the floor. Why shoulder the burden of training new employees all on your own when you can rely on experienced employees to help guide them?
