We all like to place a bet every now and then, and we hope to spend a little to win a lot, but there are times when the real life gets in the way and we’re not able to place bets all day every day. Gambling at work policy sometimes has something to do with that, which could be argued is a good or a bad thing. Depending on your point of view.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about something recently and wondering if there’s a way to place workplace ‘behaviour’ bets in real life? Can you and I use sports betting principles to win the daily competition within the workplace?
Gambling at work policy is not needed
How many times have you placed a bet on a home to win a match, but you haven’t used the same principles when speaking with a partner or a customer? Or maybe you haven’t checked out or thought about historical trends of a customer’s orders to see if their spend is increasing or decreasing.
We go into amazing detail when it comes to league tables, but do we also go into the same level of detail when looking at how often we approach our working relationships. If we consider our colleagues as different teams on a league table (or ladder – depending where you live), we could create criteria for the different individuals within a company and the different companies within the corporate league table?
So, you could use salary, time at the company and responsibility as important metrics for each employee (or team) and then use income as the points total and each of the different metrics could form the basis for how often employees (i.e. teams) move up and down the league.
Yes, I know this is a strange way to look at the workplace, but life is very much like a sport and its corresponding betting markets. A variety of people work for the same company, who each get paid different amounts and each company is competing against other companies to win their industry or league. The customers then place bets on each company by choosing to buy their product or service.
How could your company succeed using betting principles?
If your business had the best people, you might stand a better chance of winning the competitive corporate battles, but the best people from other companies would cost you more; like a soccer transfer market where the best players in the world are transferred for millions.
The alternative is to spend time, money and other resources to train employees, in much the same way as a football club trains their youth.
The more time and money spent on the most exciting and skilled players within the transfer market would cost your company a lot of money for salaries and risk alienating long-serving and loyal employees that have not left the company to gain their own fame and fortune.
Focussing on the youth system; i.e. training plans and internal development within your business is great for taking a long-term view, but results will not be quick and mistakes will be made along the way, as people learn, grow and develop.
Just like a football team, people will also retire after gaining a vast amount of experience or they may find the changing workplace environment more and more challenging, in much the same way as senior players will retire from the football game due to the physical demands affecting their performance or a long-term injury.
Can you beat your colleagues at their own game?
Now, if you think like this and check out other companies, you could make bets about how they would perform in different situations. This could help you to make better judgements when in a competitive situation, such as a two companies selling the same product to the same customer.
Who is more likely to be successful more often? The company or team that has trained for the situation more thoroughly, has the most skilled people and most able to withstand a competitive situation. Or the company that takes a risk without any knowledge of the customer or a specific territory? If you thought about this stuff, you could easily make an accurate prediction about the probable outcome.
How can you soccer betting knowledge to your advantage?
Well, you could look at sports betting as an example of developing a methodical approach to business. How could your business improve if you compared other teams in the industry and matched their strengths and weaknesses against yours?
Could this also work well if you did this within your company? You don’t have to be the boss to think about how each of the different employees within your team work. How do you really stack up against your colleague? Who has the most experience and who has the best skills to succeed in different situations? Could you be lower down the internal league table and is this why you’re being passed over for promotion?
Remember there are only a few people that can be promoted out of one league into a higher league, so if you review your performance against your internal competition, it may help you to gain more points (i.e. Salary) and climb the organisational chart for the better rewards with a greater responsibility.
What can you do today to get results?
You know the metrics that matter within your business. Sales is the only thing that matters. Your company, business, industry and you all must sell something to survive. We’re always selling something or other.
Now, if you go backwards from the goals…In sports betting, it’s winning a bet, but in a retail environment, it could be selling clothing to a customer. You must work out what’s important to getting that item of clothing to the customer and how your role can affect that process. What can you do and what skills do you need in your role to improve the overall process and to make the customer more likely to make a purchase.
You can then use this as a basis for deciding on the best approach to improve your skills, knowledge and experience while focussing on the bigger picture and what your businesses primary concern. This could help you to climb the internal corporate ladder/league table and get the rewards that are due to you.
What do you think? If this something that could benefit you and your approach to work? I’m interested to know if you could use this within your daily life, as this is something that has been on my mind for sometime…
