Operating an Architectural Practice is hugely complex. Client’s unreasonable demands, poor team knowledge and performance, complex coordination and a significant wage bill are just some of the things that make this type of business challenging.
You team are crucial to the performance of your business. You need Architects that are creative, detail orientated, enthusiastic and diligent.
How do you ensure your team are all on the same page?
A large part of the success of your practice comes through your team of staff. If they are informed, knowledgeable and well trained, your business will thrive. An Employee Handbook is a cost effective solution to improving all areas of your practice fast.
5 Real Breakthrough Benefits of an Employee Handbook in your Practice
1. Your team will instantly know all of your expectations
The first important benefit is that your team will instantly know what is expected of them. You might not have had the chance to communicate every single thing to your team. An Employee Manual is the place to include all the detail.
Whenever someone new starts in your team they will have a tool to guide them. Many Architecture Practices do not operate efficiently because their team have not been told the specifics including the rules and expected level of service delivery.
They may have been provided general guidelines, however you must be specific.
2. It will set the benchmark for customer service
As you already know, quality of design and client service is the key to the success of an Architectural Practice. Your practice revolves around delivering innovative design, delivering projects on time and accurate coordination.
Achieving 5 star reviews for every single client should be your goal. If it isn’t, your practice will struggle to compete and in the end struggle to survive. Set the expected minimum standards for your team with an Employee Handbook.
3. Your team will be building authentic trust with your customers
Being authentic and building trust is key to ensuring repeat clients which in turn, builds your practice in all areas.
Small business of any type relies on repeat customers. You cannot survive without them. Build trust and get those clients returning for more.
4. It stops you repeating yourself
A good friend of mine once told me if you don’t want to repeat yourself, don’t have kids or run a business. How true this is. Implementing an employee handbook means you will not have to repeat yourself over and over again. Your team will have a document they can refer to first.
Make sure you always refer to the Employee Handbook when they ask you questions. It must be consistently reviewed and up to date.
Take it seriously and your team will take it seriously.
5. It will determine quality above all else
You cannot run a successful practice if you are creating and providing a sub-standard product. It is just too competitive and the majority of clients have high expectations.
You must focus on quality and aim to deliver it in everything you do on a daily basis. Ensure your team focus on quality through your Employee Manual.
