Anthony Soave shares how to make the best of opportunities as they arise. He teaches his team how they can always find success by employing some hard work and a collective effort towards progress. As each individual takes time to progress and improve, the company as a whole becomes stronger. To further that progress, Soave Enterprises has implemented an online performance management system to facilitate communication, feedback, and individual growth. Anthony Soave shared the following information regarding this program:
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
This quote, attributed to Thomas Edison, serves to remind us of the opportunity each of us always has to use our own elbow grease to succeed, especially in tough economic times. Historically, we have faced many challenges as an organization – from the early struggles making ends meet, to the times when we have sacrificed short term profits to invest in a customer relationship for the long term.
Soave Enterprises Makes a Collective Effort Toward Success
Our collective efforts at Soave Enterprises have resulted in sustained growth, industry diversification, solid customer and vendor relationships and low employee turnover. It goes without saying that a major factor in each of these positive accomplishments is our talented and impressive Soave team. Soave employees are the backbone of our success. Only by developing our employees to their highest potential can we uphold our organization’s core values and maintain our corporate success. With this in mind, Soave Enterprises even offers businesses an online performance management system. The system is designed to invest in the development of our people by encouraging more regular and meaningful communication between supervisors and employees at every level.
Personal Growth Promotes Company Growth at Soave Enterprises
As each Soave company grows, we must remember it is critically important to give our people an opportunity to grow as well. Evaluation and reinforcement of both learnable skills and ingrained performance characteristics should not be done just once, but consistently and meaningfully throughout our employees’ time with us. This program will dramatically increase the number of Soave employees who set goals and receive regular feedback on their performance. Without such a system it is estimated that only a small percentage of team members formally discuss job execution with their supervisors. Though many Soave employees experience informal communication regarding performance matters, the benefits enjoyed by both employee and employer from a more formalized, interactive program are impossible to dispute.
It is clear from our historical success that the people in our organization embrace opportunity – especially when it “wears overalls and looks like work.” Thanks go out to the team that championed our performance system and continued thanks to the rest of our talented team that will benefit from the fruits of their labors.
