Let’s face it – as your company grows, there comes a point where you can simply no longer do everything yourself. Whether or not you’re a whiz when it comes to the landscaping industry is irrelevant as there simply isn’t enough time in the day to manage every last detail of your expanding business. But don’t fret! There are plenty of benefits to delegating work, some of which we’ve listed below:

1) Knowledgeable Employees

By delegating some responsibility within your company it is going to allow other employees to become more familiar with the processes and allow them to learn more about certain aspects of your business!

2) Empowered Employees

By that same token, giving other members of your team/company more responsibility will make them feel more important and appreciated and in turn increase productivity!

3) Mid-Long Term Advancement Planning

Choose certain employees that you think are ready for a promotion and give them more responsibility and see if they can handle it before making any big decisions.

4) Broader Understanding of Business

By delegating certain tasks, you may get a different point of view and in turn, take advantage of the opportunity to see things in a different light.  It never hurts having a second set of eyes, or another opinion on a decision.

4) Recharge Your Life!

Delegating will allow you to get your life back.  If you are doing less micromanaging of projects, this leaves real world time for YOU. If you feel you are spreading yourself to thin, don’t be afraid to allow your employees to help you out!
