As we welcome in 2017, it's time to start looking ahead to what the upcoming year has to offer. You have all made the most of their Christmas break, taking time to relax and refresh yourselves in preparation for returning to work. Now is the time to start the New Year with a brand new business plan and a set of goals and resolutions that are guaranteed to make your company shine throughout 2017.

Avoid the January blues and use the necessary corporate events and fun team building days to ensure that your business and employees maintain focus and optimise productivity to get ahead of the pack in the New Year. Having spent the last few weeks reflecting on the successes and the not-so-successes of the past year, you are primed to make strategic decisions and hopes for the year to come. In other words, focus on your progress and developments to get started on an effective business plan for 2017.

Promotion and Planning

As we've already mentioned, planning is absolutely essential when working towards building a more successful business. Business planning is a time for you to sit down and reflect on the growth of your business to date, and adapt goals and targets as necessary. Take stock of what has been successful and what hasn't and set aside time every week to review and adjust goals.

Promotion is also key, especially for small or growing businesses. If you want to attract new customers or clients, you will need to make promotion one of your priorities in the New Year. Create a marketing plan or hire a professional to really maximise your potential.

Optimise Your Time

When running a business, there are always 101 things that need doing at any one time, and with so many things and people demanding your attention, it can be easy to get side-tracked and end up wasting time on things that aren't particularly important in the long run.

Spend your time focusing on the most important things and delegate those that are less important or time-consuming to someone else. Remember - you don't have to do everything by yourself.

Give Back

Your employees are the driving force behind your business' success, and as such, it is important to keep them happy and motivated throughout the year. Organise corporate events or a team building day to raise spirits and promote a healthy work-life balance while developing vital skills that are directly transferable into the workplace environment.

Here at Team Challenge Company, we offer a wide range of corporate events that are ideal for boosting morale within your business and warding off the January blues. Choose from events including treasure hunts, murder mystery events, and more traditional team building days - guaranteed to help your employees reach their New Year targets.

Set Realistic Goals

It is vital to have goals - if your employees don't have goals, then they have nothing to work towards. At the same time, it is essential that these goals are realistic and achievable. Make sure the goals are attainable and will give your employees a sense of success and satisfaction when they are completed.

Make Sure It's Working for You

If something isn't working, stop trying to make it work and try a new approach. Countless business hours are wasted every year on pointless tasks and counterproductive goals. It's a fact of life that not everything is always going to work all the time, so take the time to assess the situation and the reasons why it's not working, then simply move on.

Achieving a healthy work-life balance and keeping your employees happy and motivated throughout the year are the keys to running a successful business. If you take these resolutions and adapt them to your own individual goals and requirements, you will soon be on track to managing a highly successful business this year and beyond.

In the meantime, from all of us here at Team Challenge Company, we wish you a very happy New Year!
