One of the things making small businesses to thrive is their ability to satisfy their employees. As the CEO of a small business, you need to understand the employee factor in the growth of your business.
On average, your employees put in so much effort into building your business to make sure it works. They take care of the daily activities like it were their own business. How well you treat and respect your employees, determine how productive your business will be.
In ensuring your employees’ happiness for productivity and for you to be satisfied with their work, below are some things to consider:
Always appreciate your workers: Everyone likes to be appreciated for whatever service they render, as this will encourage them to do more. Constant appreciation of your workers, either, with words, promotion, or, gifts, will help them to stay active and do more for your business.
Keep their pay attractive and regular: One of the reasons employees stay put is because their pay is regular and this encourages them to do more.
Some business owners use their employees, so much and do not pay them commensurate salaries to meet up with the service they render. Try, as much as possible, not to owe your staff. Let their pay be regular and you will see the best coming out of your workers.
Be flexible with your workers: As a boss, try as much as possible, to be close to your staff. Create this friend zone with them, which enables them to walk up to you to share ideas that can actually grow the business.
Try, as much as possible, to be involved in their personal development also. It should not just be a working relationship. So many CEO’s have missed good employees, because of their rigidity.
Respect your employees: As a boss, you have to accord enough respect to your workers. Many business owners insult their workers in the presence of their clients, which is totally wrong.
No matter how bad the situation is, you need to respect your staff because, the respect you accord them, will be the same way your clients will see them.
Create opportunities for socializing: It is important to get to know each other, outside of the work environment. Organize mini parties for staff, outside the office, just to socialize.
Employees’ happiness ought to get guaranteed just like the business owner deserves to be happy. When you do things right with your staff, you will get the best part of them and they will be able to deliver results.
