Running a cleaning company can get messy at times (pun intended), especially when there are internal conflicts or clashing personalities. You have enough to worry about with your cleaning contacts and projects, the last thing you want to have to devote your time and energy to is problems within your team. Unfortunately, that is just a part of running a business. However, you can help to improve working relationships within your cleaning company and increase chemistry and communication between team members by taking advantage of personality testing.
Personality Testing For Cleaning Companies
Here at Spot On Solutions, we make it our goal to help your business succeed and we have found that personality testing is often the missing piece to a company’s overall success. Here are just a few of the reasons we recommend companies, especially cleaning companies, to utilize personality testing.
Improves Employee Satisfaction: When employees feel valued and understood, they feel more fulfilled in their job. This satisfaction is a direct result of the increased self-awareness that comes with personality testing. Personality tests are designed to help individuals get a better understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses, things that inspire them, and things that are of no value to them. With a greater understanding of individual personality traits comes greater self-awareness. This leads to better recognition and resolution of conflicts because employees better understand why certain things may cause stress or conflict. One sure way to improve employee satisfaction in your cleaning company is to validate their feelings and increase their self-awareness with personality testing.
Increase Teamwork and Comradery: When your employees have a better understanding of their own personality traits, they can then begin to develop a better understanding of their fellow colleague’s personality traits as well. This proves invaluable when trying to strengthen the dynamic between your employees and foster an environment that is centered around teamwork. Personality testing helps employees learn how to better communicate with one another and greatly improves understanding of others’ reactions, responses, and behaviors. When you have a greater understanding of how someone else feels, you have more tolerance for each other which will help build comradery. Personality testing gives your employees the tools they need to improve interaction with one another and to be more efficient when working together.
Better Resolve Conflict: In a perfect world, there would never be any conflict, but that is just not the reality. Since disagreements and arguments, any and every other form of conflict are just a part of life and running a business, it is better to learn how to resolve these issues than trying to avoid them. One of the best investments you can make in your business is to equip you and your employees with the skills to resolve conflict in a professional manner, turning every negative situation into a positive growing experience. Personality testing will provide you with the groundwork necessary to understand why the conflict arose in the first place and how to best handle it. These tests will enlighten you and your employees on how to better communicate with each other so you can better understand where each person is coming from.
