Creating good employees. Part 8 

Making changes.  

Suppose there has been consulting done as mentioned and reported by a consultant or an individual. “What to do next?” is the big question. It is all in the hands of management. Does investment need to be made into new tech?  

A simple example here: 8 people and 8 computers. Working 8 hours a day at 50% efficiency because the computers would render for 4 hours a day. The computers were slow, yes this is a true example.  

50% of the time the employee played on their phones because they had to watch the computer in case it crashed. A simple time study and a very simple equation would show that half the employees and new computers were the solutions.  

In my case, this was presented and never acted on. You can lead a horse to water… It made no difference to me, my job was done. However simple things like this can make a big difference in the bottom line of a company. Imagine such inefficiencies in several departments.  

How do the employees benefit? 

This question is easy, yet hard if you have hard-headed members on your staff. The biggest hurdle is fear. How will this affect me? How will I adjust and will I need to change my ways? Do I need to do things differently? It’s all about me, me, me

We want our break at 10 am but let’s say we need to change it to 9:45 am. A simple 15-minute change will cause massive problems. However, it may help people be on time or leave at a less busy time as far as bus routes or traffic. 

These stupid simple examples are what can cause heated arguments in the workplace. Not one but two separate companies I adjusted start times to better accommodate employee needs. We all left 30 minutes earlier and avoided traffic.  

Happy people/employees 

Small changes can raise morale in a workplace. Good morale means happy people and better performance. Much like buying comfortable chairs for people to sit in. If your staff is tired, sore and grumpy, an investment in good chairs and better posture could be your saving grace.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
