    An Efficient Business

    Honesty from the executive down to the lowest workers is essential. Do not tolerate graft. This could be people who are not concerned about using a company car for a personal errand to returning a pencil or pen after a conference. Honesty is good for the overall business. Directly correct any cheating or fudging of the company rules. Employees who possess integrity are prime candidates for leadership.

    Search for and weed out wastes of money. Our government pays $30 for a $5 hammer, therefore we pay high taxes. An individual company will not survive nor grow when the resources are misappropriated or outright misused. Profile the expenditures and find areas of excess expenses. Correct the waste and demand that each department live within its allotment.

    Wasting time can drain the company into bankruptcy. Each task should be heavy enough to keep the employee occupied through their shift. A redistribution of tasks or employees will cause lazy workers to move or create a desire to go elsewhere. An ambitious employee can then be hired who has not acquired a lackadaisical attitude.

    A profitable business can be created when cheating and taking advantage of the company is eliminated. The company will grow which continues to use their resources wisely even if the executive officer has to be harsh and make tough decisions. The business will thrive when employees give a good day’s work for a good day’s pay. These three things are simple but basic to ultimate success.
