Membership organizations like SOCAP help businesses like OnBrand24 generate new ideas to better align the company with their customer’s needs and enhance their productivity. SOCAP provides answers and tools in the form of peer-to-peer collaboration encouraging efficiency, addressing unique goals, and getting high quality results.
In large or small companies, often the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. This results in a lot of confusion, duplication of efforts, tasks that fall through the cracks and worse yet, money left on the table—all of which contributes to a negative impact on the company and a lot of unhappy customers. Companies can’t be good at everything—which is why it’s beneficial to work with partners. Relinquishing some control is a good thing in that it invites new ideas leading to new ways to look at your business.
Collaboration also provides clarity as employees and their employers can better define their roles with less duplication. Organizations like SOCAP provide collaborating partnerships and networking with access to better workers and an exchange of ideas for new products and better technology all of which improves productivity.
As Rhonda takes the lead, we’ll be excited to see the next phase for SOCAP New England and the extraordinary results from collaboration.
