What are the key characteristics of a high performing community?
You might have heard of high performing communities, but you are yet to understand exactly what they are and how they come about. High performing communities are where people are well integrated and feel content, meaning owners and residents alike are active participants in regular meetings. This two-way communication ensures that feedback is heard and integrated in an efficient way to please everyone.
Some key characteristics of communities such as these include:
Committee members who are dedicated
In order to achieve an excellent level of communication, the committee members of your community must be dedicated to their jobs. Their experience, understanding and determination will be key to ensuring the smooth running of operations. Members will also need to be proficient at budgeting, setting realistic goals for daily tasks as well as keeping money aside for improvements and renovations. Unexpected costs can crop up at any time, so it’s essential that the committee is good at managing finances.
System of rules
Having rules in place isn’t enough, as these rules must also be fair and accepted by the residents of the community. Having a clear set of expectations means everyone understands the behaviour expected of them, ensuring that conflict is avoided and that everyone is on the same page. These rules should be accessible to all and laid down whenever new members join the community.
How can MYBOS help?
The MYBOS app makes communication much more effective, as you can easily reach lots of people all at once. This can assist with making sure everyone is informed of changes and plans while opening a secure, easily accessible feedback channel. Some features of MYBOS include:
Email and SMS: Both tenants and owners can receive automatic notifications so that they never miss an important announcement.
Integrated calendar: Meetings can be managed by using calendar bookings. This means that you’ll be able to monitor who is able to attend and when; increasing participation and engagement from all parties. Because it’s interactive, changes will be displayed in real time, making meetings more efficient and eliminating the need to wait for e-mails about changes in plans.
Library: This feature means that residents always have access to all their documents related to the property. It allows them to stay organised and informed, offering them a way to easily access their information at any time.
Business directory: Owners can look up local businesses and seek out potential partnerships to further their community. This feature is also a bonus for residents, allowing them to get used to their local area and discover new activities.
Languages: Residents and owners can select from a choice of 15 languages, meaning the app can be displayed in their preferred tongue for ease of use.
Parcels: Letters and parcels can be organised more easily and tracked via the app. Whether you’re expecting a delivery or want to track something you’re sending, you’ll be kept in the loop every step of the way.
Maintenance: MYBOS allows both owners and residents to view the progress of and report any maintenance issues, allowing everyone the peace of mind that comes with knowing problems are being taken care of.
