An SOP is short for Standard Operating Procedure. These are official guidelines that are set on paper that outline step by step routines that should be followed by employees in order to achieve consistency and efficiency in the workplace and reduce the likelihood of errors during daily, weekly, monthly and annual routines. They are also designed to establish protocols and assign onus and task level accountabilities which help avoid workplace drama and unnecessary confusions and limit managerial involvement in menial tasks.
SOPs can be updated over time, and should be as your business evolves. These can be works in progress, but doing them right the first time will definitely make for a lot less workplace frustrations.
Our team specializes in a number of different SOP types.
