Get clear and concise
Open and transparent communication goes a long way in creating a genuine and strong working relationship with your contractors. Doing things such as defining the scope of a project, letting expectations be known and coming to a mutual agreement not only sets the tone of the relationship, but will allow for less errors further down the line.
Regularly checking in with contractors during the duration of a project can help in several ways. Firstly, this allows you to track progress together and therefore make sure both parties are up to date on any changes. Secondly, keeping communication open means if any major issues crop up, you will both be aware straight away. By using software such as the MYBOS contractor database, you can ensure you always have your contractor’s details handy if you ever urgently need them.
Putting time aside to make yourself available for your contractors is a great way to improve your working relationship.This lets them know their time is valued and they can raise any issues with you when needed. Rearranging your priorities to make sure they are further up on your list will also make sure you don’t forget about their issues and you can sort them out in a timely manner. Ultimately making them feel valued.
