One – Provide Them with The Right Tech
First, you need to make sure that you are providing them with the right tech to do their job. We live in the world of technology, and it’s your job to ensure that your employees have everything they need to make their job easier. Ask each of your employees if there is anything that could make their life easier, and keep your eye on the competition, see what they are doing, and see if there is any inspiration that you can take from them.

It makes life difficult for everyone and confusion will start to take over the workplace; that’s definitely not something you want to happen to your business.
Establish your lines of communication and make it clear to your team how they should stay in touch and relay messages to one another. It’ll make a big difference in the long run in how the business operates.

You want to ensure that all of your employees are up to date on their skills, and the knowledge of their area. Ideally, you should be sending them on courses outside of their comfort zone as well just to be sure that they are becoming well rounded. Negotiation training for example might not be something that you send people on regularly, but those that you think need it because they have to be able to negotiate well could benefit from being trained professionally.
