contractors' new year's resolutions

It’s hard to believe that 2021 is already coming to an end. That means it’s time for you to prepare your contracting business for a new year. As you prepare, you no doubt want to plan for an excellent year — the best in the history of your company. HFS Financial is here to partner with you in your endeavors. When you offer the best contractor financing for your customers, you are well on your way to success. Here are 4 New Year’s resolutions for contractors to add to the list of goals you are making for your business.

Construct a Communication Plan

The first goal that you want to achieve next year is excellent communication in all relationships you encounter on a daily basis. Construct a communication plan that will help you stay in touch with your employees, your past customers, and your prospective customers.


Have regular work meetings with all of your staff. Be sure to highlight achievements at these gatherings. Building morale goes a long way in keeping loyal employees. 

Take advantage of the time together to train your employees on important things as well. Cover any safety training standards that need to be addressed. Build a unified team by keeping all of your company’s goals in front of the entire workforce routinely.


You also want to resolve to communicate with the people who keep your business alive — the customers. Keep your brand before your satisfied customers. Also keep a list of referrals on file to reach out to new clients. This can be a great time to hire a marketing company to help you with all forms of communication — email campaigns, social media, a website, and more.

Review Health and Safety Regulations

Another important goal to achieve is to review health and safety regulations with the new year approaching. Ensure that all equipment is up to code. The safety of your employees is of utmost importance. Make it a point to stop by various project sites to see that everyone is adhering to the health and safety guidelines that you have in place as well.

Simplify Your Day-to-Day Operational Systems 

Next, try to simplify your day-to-day operational systems as much as you can. Technology is useful for so many things. Businesses can benefit from using digital and computerized systems instead of just using pen and paper for everything. 

Bookkeeping can be a breeze when you invest in software to use for invoices, bill paying, payroll, and more. Communication is also much simpler when you let technology assist you.
