A business can fail or succeed on the back of its
employees. A strong core can support other
weaknesses, and a motivated staff can pull a
company through hardship where other assets
So how do you get your employees to put in their all
for you? How do you light the same fire for success
in them that you have for your business?
Focus on them: Employees who feel cared for and
supported will take care of your inventory. They will
take care of your customers. They will take care of
your brainstorming. Take care of the wellbeing of
your employees, they will take care of your business
Care about what they care about: Don’t be a
workplace where everyone feels replaceable,
because then your employees will always be
hedging their bets and no one will give it 100%. Talk
to them with respect. Give them the ability to take a
personal day without asking why. Invite everyone to
go out after work. Ask for feedback.
Give meaningful incentives: More and more studies
are showing that money is not the most motivating
incentive. Ordering in a lunch for the team with the
highest sales, giving a paid Friday so your staff can
have an extra three day weekend if the company
surpasses the output goals for the month, or a
catered breakfast the morning after your IT team
pulls an allnighter to update your system are all
meaningful ways of showing appreciation.
Be honest with them: Share not just measurable
goals for productivity, share your dreams for the
company. Share the heart of the business. Share
why you run this business the way you do. Everyone
wants to feel like they are a part of something
special., so tell them why you think they ARE a part
of something special.
Openly communicate both ways: You have a huge
resource in your staff. You have people that work
with customers or inventory every day. You have
people that know the nittygritty of what works and
what doesn’t. Listen to the feedback. Ask for input.
Acknowledge the good ideas, and make sure that
the whole company knows it came from a fellow
