Sometimes, it’s the Simple Things That Keep Your Employees Happy

A recent submission to National Mortgage Professional reminded me that, as complex as the mortgage and real estate industry can seem sometimes, it’s the simple things that can keep us on track.  The article is directed toward mortgage leaders, but it’s absolutely applicable to title agents and small business owners as well.

Sometimes, executives and owners get caught up in the big picture or the vision.  That’s ok—it’s what drives us to build successful businesses in the first place.  But the author of this article, David Lykken, reminds us that, if we don’t articulate that vision or, perhaps more importantly, we don’t explain in practical terms what our employees need to do to contribute to that success, we create uncertain and unhappy teams.  Mr. Lykken goes on…

“Boosting employee morale and reducing turnover doesn’t have to be about providing huge incentives and dramatic displays like employee coffee shops, yoga classes, or group retreats. Sometimes, it’s as simple as taking the things that cause employees stress out of the job. And that you can do simply by cleaning up your process.”

Hmmm.  Perhaps things like doc prep?  Release tracking?  Title curative?

Mr. Lykken’s article reminds us why we, at Require, do what we do.  Let us handle your time-consuming and burdensome tasks with a combination of automation and expertise.  Let your folks move on to the things that grow your business.  It could make us all happier!
