Our employees play a huge role in how our businesses are run. As owners, managers, and supervisors we want to see the business flourish. In order for that to happen we need our employees to be positive, hardworking and motivated. How do we keep that motivation and momentum going during peak times and when business is slow? Of course it starts from the top.
Hiring the right people is just one stepping stone in running your successful business. Anyone can start out with a fire in their eyes and a desire to work hard. But if employees aren’t treated with a positive attitude and respect, work performance will decrease. Using a positive attitude and having an appreciation for the work they do, creates employees who are happy to come to work and give their all.
Have you thought about using incentives in your place of work? Maybe an employee appreciation day? These are great ideas to keep everyone motivated. Setting realistic goals that once they are met, they are met with a reward. These don’t need to be extravagant events but ones that are meaningful and recognize the hard work your employees are putting in. Remember they keep the foundation you build in its rightful place.
