4 Reasons Why Walla’s Tasks Boost Accountability and Productivity

Accountability is crucial for the success of your fitness studio—and your staff. And when your team members feel accomplished, your clients and community feel it, too. Talk about sharing those go-getter, feel-good vibes. But accountability is not just about feeling accomplished; it’s important for several reasons, including:

  • Ensuring the safety of your studio members 
  • Increasing member satisfaction by delivering quality studio experiences 
  • Fostering professionalism among staff 
  • Shaping a positive studio culture and brand reputation
  • Promoting teamwork and collaboration 
  • Consistency that contributes to member retention

Ultimately, accountability equates to ownership, development, and improvement, all in the best interest of sustainable studio growth. So, how are we leveraging and instilling this sense of success-driven responsibility in your fitness business? With tasks

Tasks in the Walla platform (located under your name and profile image in the navigation dropdown) enable your studio and staff to digitize their to-do list, from washing and folding towels at the end of the day to sending a studio manager a note to nurture and engage new clients. Whatever you need to be completed at your studio, tasks have you covered. Plus, you can eliminate the “I forgot” or “oh shoot!” lingo. 

Here’s how tasks work and why they can empower a culture of accountability, organization, and confidence thanks to accomplishments! 


1. Assign tasks to anyone—or everyone!


Calling all studio staff! Think of tasks as your virtual to-do list directly within the Walla platform you use daily. Whether it’s a reminder for yourself to clean equipment or for all the managers across multiple studio locations to create an email campaign to target a specific segment of customers, tasks can be created and assigned with or without a due date. Tasks can also include links to audiences or clients, saving time so whoever has the job can complete it more immediately. 


2. Boost staff confidence and work ethic with a list of accomplishments  

Nothing says work is getting done—and is being done well— than a list of what you and your staff achieved. Tasks enable you not only to assign and track studio staff assignments but also allow you to see an overview of what has been accomplished. Getting a snapshot of what is completed is always fun to share with your staff, too, increasing drive, morale, and acknowledgment that their collective effort is creating an even better studio for your members. Try weaving a summary of task accomplishments into reviews, check-ins, or studio company meetings. It will validate hard work, inspire new ideas, and encourage room for growth and improvement. 


3. Tackle deadlines, reduce stress, and create an environment of responsibility 


With tasks in Walla, it’s easy to assign deadlines and see if something is due soon—or overdue (which can’t be ignored because it’s in red). Deadlines enable you to set expectations for yourself and your staff, proactively helping with time management. Also, once a task is created and added to a staff member profile, seeing what you must do is straightforward with a numbered notification over your profile icon in the top right navigation in Walla. Time-saving bonus: When a task is assigned to someone and taken care of, it will be displayed as completed to the creator, so there’s no need for follow-up!


4. Make Walla your one-stop shop and source of truth for staff 

Eliminate the need for a third-party project management tool, another platform, or a shared Google document or spreadsheet. Your staff is already logging into Walla, and with tasks built directly into our software, they will know precisely what they need to do without checking an outside source. And it only takes seconds to assign tasks for yourself or someone else. Of course, you’re saving time but also eliminating room for error and excuses, which is a Walla win-win. 

Keeping track of tasks enhances accountability, productivity, communication, and overall efficiency while contributing to better decision-making and goal achievement at your studio.
