You may have come a long way from micromanaging every little bit to trusting your new team supervisor to lead the way in your absence, but doing this for the first time can still be stressful. However, introducing a cloud-based Field Service Management platform that tracks and records all jobs completed in real-time can give you peace of mind knowing that all is going smoothly. Being able to overview daily scheduled jobs and go through Property Occupants’ feedback can be a simple way to know if your team is really delivering the kind of service that your business is known for.
Putting the reins of your hard-built business in someone else’s hands even for a day sounds scary, even crazy to be honest if you have not done that before. So start small. Identify tasks that don’t really have to have your attention all the time and begin to delegate to get that unnecessary weight off your shoulders. Put the right systems, process and resources in place and get confidence that things will get done as expected. Finally, build a culture where employees can put aside individual goals and care for business success as a whole.
