Last Friday, everyone was celebrating Valentine's day. It's an important day of the year to remind your loved ones how much you appreciate them. However, Valentine’s day should not only be celebrated in your personal life, but also between bosses and their subordinates. Leaders should make their employees feel valued to keep them happy at their job. Here are some tips that you as a leader should follow to improve your company's morale:
- Make yourself available. Most of the people feel intimidated to ask questions to their bosses. Send them constant reminders that you are there for anything they need and make them feel comfortable asking you questions.
- Celebrate small wins. Employee’s like to feel appreciated, even for something little. Let them know that their efforts are not getting unnoticed.
- Be transparent. Let them know you have nothing to hide and that they can trust you. Creating a sense of trust will motivate them to share their ideas and be more proactive.
- Don’t act like you are above them. Stay humble and relate to your employees. Putting yourself on their level will motivate them to share their problems and finally overcome them.
You know what they say. Happy employees, happy customers. People, when happy work harder, and feel more motivated to do their jobs. It's crucial nowadays for bosses to put a lot of effort and attention on making their employees happy. It does not only leads to great business results but also creates a healthy workplace environment. Celebrate love and appreciation everyday at your company. It will lead to a low turnover rate, higher employee participation and an amazing company culture.
