If a stranger or human resources worker were to walk into your building, would they say your employees are happy or miserable?
Employees are the core of your organization – your backbone. Without them, you can’t have a successful and flourishing company.
If you treat them wrong, your company suffers, particularly when it comes to profits and productivity.
Research has shown time and time again that companies need to prioritize employee happiness.
Do you want to increase profits? You need a happy staff.
Invest in Your People
If you want to increase your profits, you need to invest in your staff first. Pay every worker fairly. If a hard worker asks for a raise, give it to them. Offer employee bonuses as well.
If you don’t invest in them, you won’t see any return on investment (ROI). How can you expect workers to do their best for you if you aren’t willing to do the same?
Lighten the Mood
The office shouldn’t feel like a cold and mechanical place. Workplaces truly shine when workers can be themselves. That’s when their best work and ideas come out.
Encourage your staff to let their passion shine through their work, to let their vibrant personalities shine. Let your employees have fun now and then.
Get Things Done
Workplaces operate best when staff members – temps, interns, contractors, everyone – aren’t afraid to approach their supervisors. Your team needs to be able to have meaningful conversations with you.
At the same time, you need to listen and be responsive to their needs. Don’t ignore what they have to say.
55% of staff feel their requests or concerns are ignored during performance reviews. Don’t be that company. You’ll lose great a great team.
