Employee Advocacy: Strategies to boost employee participation

silhouettesIt is no secret that your employees are you most valuable asset, but do they know that? As the lines between professional and personal life become even blurrier with each passing day — thanks in large part to social media — it is crucial to your business’s success to harness the power and knowledge of your happy employees. Here are some ideas to get them more involved in the process.

1. Encourage your employees to own your company. Employees who feel like they are part of the success of a business are more likely to engage in positive social media interactions about that company. Position your employees as thought leaders within your business as well as the industry.

2. Trust your employees. When you use your employees to engage on social media platforms about your business, you are handing over a certain amount of trust to them. While that can be difficult to do — and, yes, sometimes it does backfire — because they are your employees, encouraging them to be advocates for your brand brings an increase in respectability as well as trust from those who are reading their postings.

3. Allow employees to have free reign. When people post about a company, it has a different feel than when the owners do so. There is a more intimate feeling involved when one of your employees posts to their friend’s timeline, for example, about how her employer — your business — offers the exact services he finds himself in need of. This casual and friendly interaction helps your business name and brand reach a larger audience, a methodology that has proven to increase sales and profits.

De-clutter and Better Organize Your Living and Work Space

deskSpring has sprung and it’s now time to de-clutter your living and work spaces so they can serve you better. Not only will you have less stuff to keep contained, you will be able to find the things you need more quickly and feel less stress about the clutter in your life. The following tips will help you get started.

Start Small

It can be overwhelming when you look at your desk that is piled high with papers, books and various pens, staplers and other accessories. The same goes for your bedroom with its piles of clothes to sort through for the seasonal change as well as those that need to either be handed down or tossed. Not knowing how — or even where — to get started often puts the brakes on efforts to de-clutter. Begin with one corner of your desk or a room that you want to target.

Stay Steady

For best results, de-clutter for short periods of time and often. While even 15 minutes a day can reap noticeable benefits, scheduling a couple of hours a few times a week is an even better idea. Try to avoid massive de-cluttering sessions that always seem to peter out as quickly as they started, leaving half-cleaned rooms in their wake.

A Place for Everything

Once you have de-cluttered an area, designate space for those items that belong there. For your desk, as an example, transfer papers that you need to save but that are not currently being used to a separate filing cabinet. Store pens and related items in caddies designed for that purpose. Take outgrown clothing that is languishing in your bedroom out to your car in the morning when you leave so you can drop them off to a donation site on your way to work.

Sprucing up your yard for Spring

spring - gardenWith the warm spring weather comes the desire to make your yard more presentable. While some of the tasks listed below might seem tedious, the end result — a beautiful yard that bursts with life — that will make all your efforts seem worth it.

1. Do a clean sweep. This is the time to remove all that debris leftover from the winter storms. Remove dead leaves, twigs and fallen branches from your yard. Tackle any weeds that have popped up to take advantage of the warmer weather.

2. Feed your yard and your garden. After the long winter, take time to feed and seed your yard and garden. This provides a firm foundation for a robust yard of green grass later on in the season.

3. Plant it! Whether you want to try your hand at vegetable gardening this year or you are looking forward to the colorful blossoms of spring, early spring is the time to plant. Purchase flowers that have already been started for a welcome splash of color. Thoroughly fertilize your garden plot to ensure that your young plants have a strong start in life.

4. Add accessories. Just like your accessories make your outfit, so do they in your yard. Large planters highlight favorite plantings while lawn furniture gives you a comfortable and relaxing place to unwind after a long day at work.

5. Tend to older plants. Now that winter is over, it is time to see how your existing foliage weathered the elements. Take the time to prune your bushes, trees and other plants. Mulch them thoroughly to provide them with the nutrients they need to recuperate after the winter. Then enjoy them as they bloom for you once again this year.
