In the modern world of work, there are literally countless options for individuals with the right skills. Your employees may have applied to work for you purely out of chance. This means that although they are in a sense working for themselves, i.e., for their salary, they are in a sense always hanging in limbo. Mentally connecting your employees to your business can be one of the most powerful things you can do as a business owner. The staff your hire should be seen as investments which will over time get better and better and become more valuable to your business. In order to cultivate an environment where you have many veterans still with you, the business needs to become a part of them. They only ways in which this can be achieved is if give them reasons to care. Listen to them, hear what they have to say, and show them their words have not fallen on deaf ears, by acting out upon their complaints or advice.
Take on board criticism
Employees have one strong route to get across what they are thinking and feeling to you the boss. The HR department of your business handles all the inquiries that employees have as well as their criticisms of the business. If your business uses the industry standard, chances are you’re going to be falling under an umbrella that is often kept up-to-date by a company that sets it. You can, therefore, allow your employees to critique the way you do business and how the work environment and company culture is affecting them. If the complaints are related to finances, you’re obligated to know the correct financial conduct laws which can be further logged and taken to peninsula business services complaints. Here you’ll be able to understand the complex nature of employment laws, and whether your business culture and legalities are falling under the correct guidance of the national law.
Make it lean
However, if you keep your employees ‘in the know’ and make sure they’re all reading from the same book and page, there will be less friction. Equally, move departments that regularly work together, closer. It doesn’t make sense if employees have to gift elevators or walk across from the end of the floor to the other, to talk with other employees, involved in the same task or service. You’d be amazed how much stress these actions can take out of the workplace, and foster positivity and efficiency. A workplace that is disjointed, with multiple departments cut off from each other, whether it be physically or through online access and communication, only creates barriers. This can be avoided if you allow all the department to have access to the same information as each other. Granted, some sections shouldn’t have the ability to interfere with another department, such as edit or authorize certain documents and actions.
Employees that are able to see you’re taking good care of them with regards to the law, and in keeping with the correct financial conducts, are more likely to trust you. Once they feel emotionally connected to the business, motivation, and determination to meet goals is amplified. Connecting different departments make daily life easier at work, which in turn, decreases stress levels of your staff.
