It has been said that praise is much more effective than criticism. While it is easy to notice what your employees do wrong, make sure to take the time to notice what they do right. This will encourage your employees to give their full effort to the given task before them.
2. Offer different incentives and rewards
Everyone loves being rewarded for a job well done, and rightfully so. Make sure to notice and reward those employees who go the extra mile to make sure a project is completed correctly and accurately. Think about giving a regular weekly or monthly cash prize for the employee who performs above and beyond expectations.
3. Be flexible with giving time off
Remember, your employees have lives outside of their work. Be as flexible with your scheduling as possible and allow for ample time off. Your employees have health needs, emergency situations, and vacations they need time off for. Do your best to work with them when these items come up. A rested employee is a much more effective worker than a tired one.
4. Promote from within your company if possible
Promoting from within your company gives your employees another incentive to work hard at their job, knowing they may have the opportunity to move up in position, pay, and benefits. No one wants to be stuck at a dead-end job with no hopes of promotion. Dead-end jobs are rarely long-term jobs for employees.
5. Make sure your employees know exactly what you expect of them
There is no better way to frustrate your employees than being disorganized in the delegation and completion of your projects and tasks. Work constantly on being organized in each area of your work. This will provide a work environment that is conducive to efficient and productive synergy.
By working on these items as an employer or manager, you will greatly improve the quality and productivity of your employees. The sky is the limit for how far your company can go if you consistently work on these essentials to having high-quality employees. Without your employees, there is no such thing as a successful company. Learn to look for ways to treat your employees in the way you would want to be treated if you were in their position.
