The people-process framework is a methodology that balances people and processes to drive action and achieve business growth. However, the success of this strategy is dependent on the leader. What should leaders consider when implementing this type of structure?

As business leader Adam Russo explains, executives in leadership roles should focus on employee work ethic, workplace culture, and business operations. And even though there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to measuring work efficiency, organizations should be able to determine a value for the dollar in terms of meeting deliverables and deadlines. In addition, businesses incur costs when there is high turnover, but a solution to employee retention is creating a safe and engaging work environment. Having standard operating procedures in place, such as processes for onboarding, an overview for the initial two weeks, and job duties, also aids in retention. Adam also advises updating SOPs, which significantly impacts business growth regarding inaccuracies and productivity.
