How to keep your employees happy
Step 1: Increase their salaries.
Step 2- Increase their salaries.
Step 3-1,000 Increase their salaries!
Many employers think the ONLY way to retain loyal and happy employees is to increase their salaries. WRONG! Sometimes, dissatisfaction at work is not as a result of money. Other things like unnecessary pressure and back breaking hours also contribute to a disgruntled employee.
Every company needs loyal, happy and effective employees who will go out of their way to achieve great strides for the company. However, employees need to be motivated to achieve this. If you already have a loyal crop of staff, take time to celebrate their successes between tasks. Everyone responds to love and appreciation.
Treat your staff like human beings who are a valuable part of the organisation. This will make them feel appreciated and in turn increase productivity. Treat everyone like they are important and make them feel like they are making a difference. Of course, they really need to be. There should be no room for lazy and unproductive employees in any organisation.
