Roughly, 75% of companies struggle with employees who are overwhelmed, and 50% of people quit their jobs because of their bosses, not the work. Stats like these are why many in the world of work have been concerned about the “great resignation”, a phenomenon in which employees are quitting their jobs in droves. What is the best way to stop this and retain your top talent? Be a good boss. That’s something Dr Peta-Anne Browne – Wardworx founder and winner of last year’s Santam Women of The Future (Rising Star) award – is passionate about.
Browne says, “A good manager needs to have a deep understanding of each of the roles they manage. Ideally, it should be someone who has had first-hand experience in the role – or has made the effort to spend time ‘on the floor’ with the team. To lead is to serve, and I think a humble approach will always get you far.”
Wardworx is a mobile app designed by Browne to help doctors streamline patient task management in a hospital setting. It also allows for secure patient information sharing and task collaboration of doctors within a team. Browne launched it in January 2021 and since then it’s been downloaded 5 940 times, with a near perfect rating on Apple and Android.
Here are Browne’s tips for being a great boss:
Being a good manager requires a thirst for efficiency, a passion for people and a desire to create good systems. Sprinkle all of that onto a revolutionary app and you get a woman of the future.
