Show your employees the love

Cheesy I know – but I’m in a loved up mood and I’m here to tell you how you can spread this good feeling throughout the workplace. I’ve posted a fair bit lately about the harsh side of managing employees – today we need to focus on the nice stuff.

It’s a fact – employees who feel valued and appreciated perform better – they want to do more for you, want to stay in your employment and will shout about the good stuff.

Here’s a gentle reminder about how to spread the love:

  1. Appreciate regularly – it doesn’t have to cost the earth – a simple thank-you speaks volumes. Make sure you make a note of the good stuff that your team does and don’t forget to raise it. Some people may like the public praise – some will just like a quiet word. Find out what works for each person so you can make a real personal impact.
  2. Spend some time with each employee – even if you’re the big boss – take the time. Everyone in your employment is a crucial cog in the business – don’t under value what each and every person brings. Find out what stops them from doing an efficient job and see if you can assist – it may be a little thing but it’s the little things that matter.
  3. Carry out gestures to prove you’re all on the same side – go to reception to welcome a visitor instead of expecting everyone else to do it. Make a cuppa. Smile and say morning to people. Don’t put yourself on a pedestal which removes you even further from the people who matter to the success of your business.

By the way – I’m not saying that you should only do this today. If you want people to feel that the gesture was disingenuous then go for it. If you want to make a lasting impact though – keep up the good work.
