At the core of your company is the idea of money. That means, no matter what your products or services are, you have to pay particular attention to income and expenses, and then figure out what your profit margin is. To showcase your productivity, you need to work with financial reviews of your company as often as possible.
Some of these financial reviews are going to come in the form of independent specialized reviews, private reviews from customers and clients, public reviews on Internet sites, and even internal reviews that your managers, employees, and customers can give each other.
Independent Specialized Reviews
What your company has reached a certain size, it’s not bad to get an independent audit of your finances. This independent review will ensure that you are compliant with various forms of regulations when it comes to banking and finance, and it will also make your entire operation that much more transparent. You’ll notice a lot of news about individuals and companies that have moved money around, almost to the degree of laundering, to avoid taxes and other regulatory measures. This is not something that you want to be involved in!
Private Reviews from Customers and Clients
When it comes to private reviews from customers, especially when it has to deal with money, why not put their reviews up on your website? Think of the brand development that you could boost if you have a list of positive quotes and feedback about how much savings people have had by using your products and services. On many company web pages, these types of reviews, often along with pictures of happy people, are one of the highlights of the branding effort.
Public Reviews on Internet Sites
Public reviews on Internet sites are not something you can control. But, they are something that you can use to advantage as long as people are positively reviewing you. If someone on social media, or even a website like Yelp, talks about the quality of your services favorably, that directly highlights the financial integrity of your company.
Internal Reviews of Your Company’s Financial Goals
And then there are internal reviews of your company’s financial goals that you can solicit regularly. You can create a survey that gets passed around digitally to all of your employees and find out, potentially even anonymously, how they feel like you’re doing as a manager or owner. Are they happy with the financial goals that are in place? And, are they satisfied with things like salaries or hourly rates? Working with the survey as a form of economic review this way can give you insight into the psychological makeup of the people who work for you.
