To help your business maintain its course of prosperity throughout the coming year, encourage your employees to continue learning new things, developing practical skills, and cultivating fresh opportunities. Identify ways to collaborate through strategic alliances or partner with fellow businesspeople in your industry whose offerings can round out those of your business. Try to compensate your employees in a way that makes them feel appreciated, either with bonuses, if possible, or through recognition. Make goals quantifiable, and assure your staff that they’ll be evaluated regularly on their performance. Your investment in your employees will pay off through growth that benefits the entire business.
