In today's economic and competitive environment, profit strategies focus tenaciously on operational efficiency. Organic growth strategies focus on building deep, long-lasting client relationships. Both strategies require ever increasing levels of individual productivity. Even with good employees, getting more performance out of existing staff has long been a management challenge. Ever increasing complexity of product offerings, operating procedures, regulations, and customer demands makes the challenge greater than ever before. If your bank is operating with fewer employees today than in the past, the challenge is greater still.
While technology may impact productivity, it's how employees use the technology that boosts it's potential. While compelling product offerings may generate interest, it's how employees interact with clients and prospects that sells more products. While vision, mission and values attempt to inspire speed and accuracy in the workplace, it's employees that set the pace for what and how much gets done each day.
