If something untimely or untoward happened to you or one of your team would you be safe in the knowledge that anyone else in the office could pick-up where you left off, run those repetitive but all-important jobs, meet deadlines and basically keep the business going? Whether you’re a small, medium or large business, documenting your standard operating procedures (SOP’s) is vital to the successful running of your business.
The benefits of documenting your SOP’s are massive – it provides consistency, helps to monitor and analyse your systems therefore providing the opportunity to fine-tune, improve delivery, performance and quality of your service. It also serves as a training platform helping you to induct new staff and cross train all members of your team eliminating the risk of one person having all the knowledge.
