    How to delegate work in your own business and when to make an accident at work claim

    If you are running your own business then you get to enjoy the luxury of deciding how your business runs, who does the work and when the deadlines are. This is one of the best things about running a company, however, actually managing yourself and others to do the work can be a little tricky, and you have to remember that if this is your company, you won’t be able to place the blame on anyone else if something goes wrong, and will have to take the financial hit if your company fails because of mistakes which have been made.

    If you are able to manage all of your staff properly then you should be able to keep your company on an upward trajectory, and here are some ways to delegate work.

    • Know what needs to be done. It is almost impossible for you to delegate work to other employees if you aren’t completely sure what still needs to be done and when it needs to be done by. Make sure that you are constantly updating your work schedule so that you know where you are on each project and what still needs to be done.
    • Keep the most critical projects for yourself. Anything that is sensitive, or very important, should be kept for yourself, as this way you can be absolutely sure that it is being done correctly. This will stop you worrying that work isn’t being done properly and that this will cause problems later.
    • Delegate work according to skills. You will have hired each person in your team because of their particular skills. Make sure that each person is given work which matches up to their particular skills, and that they work together on anything that could use more than one input.
