Thanksgiving is around the corner and it’s time to give thanks. This time of year is the perfect opportunity to show your employees how important they are and make them feel valued, which is something we crave as humans. 

CEO of The Energy Project, Tony Schwartz wrote an article for Harvard Business Review titled “The Only Thing that Really Matters”. He wrote that “the struggle to feel valued is one of the most insidious and least acknowledged issues in organizations. How we’re feeling — and most especially whether or not we feel acknowledged and appreciated — influences our behavior, consumes our energy and affects our decisions all day long, whether we’re aware of it or not.”

Sir Winston Churchill once said, “The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.” The approach of ignoring the popular opinion of the masses during war may work for a prime minister, but it won’t work in business. Running a company isn’t like fighting a war. In war, you can’t pack up your desk and leave if you are unsatisfied, overworked, and under-appreciated. However, losing employees at a high rate is a boss’s worst nightmare. Ruling with an iron fist and no regard for what your employees need won’t give them any reason to trust you or to respect you. In fact, one study shows the number 2 complaint from employees about their boss is that they don’t listen (number 1 was micromanaging if you’re curious).

Employee NPS drives customer NPS and customer NPS drives company growth. So what is NPS? It stands for Net Promotor Score and it measures experience and loyalty. Basically, if you want to make money you have to keep your employees happy and loyal. Clear communication will outweigh any perks an office provides to its employees. If employees feel that management and leadership don’t effectively communicate with them and if they feel unfulfilled in their work, basketball tickets and raffles won’t stop them from seeking fulfillment somewhere else. This is why maintaining a feedback loop is crucial to running a good business. Here are some ideas to assure both leadership and employees are “in the loop”.
