Virgin, the company founded and owned by Richard Branson, has grown numerically and productively through the years mainly because of their proper treatment of employees. Mr. Branson’s maintains that taking care of your employees results in them caring for your business as if it was their own. That said, here are some suggestions to motivate your workforce:
Find and Train Potentials – While you can hire experts as managers, but this would entail a whole new set of adjustments altogether. Milestone Management Partners noted that you can choose those who have leadership qualities and enroll them in project management training courses. There will be some sort of adjustment, but with the existing interpersonal bond between your Utah staff, it would relatively be faster and smoother compared to hiring a complete stranger to run the group.
Proper Delegation – Delegation should not be seen as simply passing the buck to others. A wise leader should know and assess the skills sets, interests, strengths and expertise of each of his constituents in order to assign the proper tasks for each. This would allow each staff member to enjoy their given work while management maximizes each worker’s capacity and time.
Recognize and Reward – An ideal way of encouraging your existing staff would be to recognize those who have shown exemplary work and remains constantly excelling in their own fields. Come up with contests that award those who go beyond the company’s weekly goals. Offer prizes for workers are constantly punctual and have consistent attendance. Do congratulate and praise them personally if you do bump into them. It means so much for them to receive recognition by the big bosses.
Taking care of your business should go beyond enlarging your reach and maximizing your profits. Your people are the lifeblood of your company and they should be given importance. Remember, if you want your company to survive and conquer, don’t set aside your foot soldiers.
