ORGANIZATIONS AND BEHAVIOUR

E-Renting
E-Renting is a leading online business without a high street branch. The company
focuses on streamlining the renting out process for landlords by applying
technology to the traditional model to create a cost-effective and flexible offering.
There comes a point in any growing business when it needs to be more than just
its founder. It needs the right people to undertake tasks, such as answering the
phone, managing the accounts, handling customer enquiries and producing
content.
Founder says E-renting recently reached this stage, and I decided that - rather
than just employing new and full-time talent - I would look towards creating a
virtual team of specialists. As a result, this would help him to focus more on
growing the business. Employing a virtual team inevitably has its pros and cons.
The fact that people don't all sit in and share the same office can mean that they
don't feel empowered, or they become disengaged with the company's philosophy.
Founder says You need to ensure that you take people on with similar attributes
- people with entrepreneurial flair, who are proactive and have a desire to grow the
business. It's a question of going out and trying to find the right people, without
falling into the trap of taking on a whole load of consultants. Transparency and
incentivizing and rewarding staff helped to produce a culture of loyalty within the
company. This in turn allowed staff to feel empowered enough to take on new
responsibilities improve internal processes and ultimately led to the development
of their own careers professionally - all of which are foundations for the success of
a business.
Achieving the right company culture can be a very difficult thing to get right, so
company had to give it some serious thought. E-renting has found that culture can
make or break a company and it changes and evolves over time. The right culture
affects the retention of key staff, which is important for the successful growth of a
business. Competitors may be in the position to offer higher salaries and issues of
headhunting may be a problem unless the company's culture is aligned with your
staff's own values and your company's business objectives. So the founder says
we had to create a feeling of loyalty where people are encouraged and
incentivized to thrive and develop within their roles.
