How do you present the company’s year end report to your employees? Do you just require them to be in one specific venue and give the usual speech? If you haven’t given one yet, hold that speech for a moment and give the activity some more thought first. Wouldn’t it be great if you can present your company’s year end report in a more exciting and unforgettable way? Why don’t you hand out some souvenirs like logo pencils, which can even encourage your staff to take notes of your upcoming talk?
Year end reports should not be associated with boring lectures and monologues which are typical of some businesses’ cases. You need to be able to engage your employees to actively participate in the activity. This way, you’ll know their two cents worth and be able to interact with them directly, rather than assume they understood what you’re talking about. Entertain questions and ask some so you can facilitate effective relations. To add to the excitement, offer simple customized awards to those who will actively contribute to the success of the event.
Remember that year end reports or state of the company speeches are intended for the employees. You are trying to make them aware of what’s happening in the company. This is a chance for them to find out how much progress the business has been doing so far. Thus, you need to arrange and write the report in the most honest way possible.
You need to discuss both good and bad matters about the company’s status. Be forthright when speaking about matters that require a little more explanation on your part. Make sure to offer concrete and practical solutions when discussing future development strategies. This way, your staff will know what specific things are expected of them in the following year.
Organizing and preparing company year end reports is no easy feat, but somebody has to do it. If that happens to be you, then be sure to give it your all. You know what else you can give? Why not hand out promotional jackets imprinted with the operative motto of your business for the next year? Excellent motivational strategy huh?
