A good company will create a non-blame workplace and environment. This will not just happen, it will take a focused effort and a very persistent and consistent approach.
Always play the ball and not the man. The book by Dr Stephen Covey called “Seven habits of highly successful people” outlines some great steps:
- Look and don’t listen
- Fact find first before making assumption too quickly
- Use face to face communication instead of emails on sensitive matters
- Deposit into the emotional bank account, as we reap what we sow
- Seek first to understand before being understood
- Monitor your team’s and employees happiness with surveys using www.tinypulse.com
Employee retention is important for all businesses as our team members are our greatest assets. Our most important asset is our clients and customers. We put a lot of effort into finding the right people, who are diverse and similar at the same time. Complementary skills are very important. We all have our own personalities but we mesh together as a passionate team. By taking care of team members, we aim to decrease employee turnover.
Try looking at the money saved by keeping your workforce happy.
Recognise and reward people when they reach individual or company goals and live out values of ingenuity, excellence and integrity. Hold a monthly performance review at minimum. Again your second biggest asset is your team.
A great workplace can be achieved with correct leadership. Remember that it’s important for your team members to feel they make a difference and that they are proud to be part of the company and the journey the business is on.
