Does every employee contribute to the business performance of the company? Or is it really just sales and marketing people who do? These are questions I get asked time and again and the answer to both is pretty straightforward: When it comes to business performance, everyone is contributing, whether consciously or not.
Of course, sales and marketing folks participate in a very obvious way by taking action every day to increase sales, but sales is just one of many ways to contribute to a company’s performance. Finance people, for example, contribute by making sure money is not squandered and can be used to get more salespeople in front of more customers to increase sales indirectly. Customer service personnel ensure that customers are happy and have good reason not to use the service of a competing company—therefore indirectly securing future sales with existing customers.
