Want to make your company stand out from the competition? The answer in how to do so may surprise you. Convention speakers stress that making sure you’ve got a happy, healthy workplace is one of the longest-lasting effects you can implement to place your company head and shoulders above the rest.
Treat Your Employees Like People
This may seem like an obvious suggestion, but it’s one that many managers have missed. Creating an environment where your employees feel valued, engaged and respected has been shown to sharply increase workplace productivity. Hire the right number of people for the job instead of trying to cut costs you’ll find that your employees aren’t burned out and actually contributing to a higher profit margin. Flexible schedules are another great way of telling employees you recognize that responsibilities in today’s world have changed from when their parents worked.
Set an Example
Convention speakers will tell you that how you work and practice well being is the biggest example your employees will use with their work habits. Do you want tired, cranky, burned out employees? Come into work looking that way. However, if you want your employees to be fresh, energized and productive show them how you and your leaders do it. Eat well, speak nicely and with respect, and maintain friendly and professional relationships.
It’s no secret that workplaces that place a premium on well being are the ones with high retention rates and profit margins. Convention speakers tell you that you should make yours one, too.
