When you’re crushing it at work but you’re feeling unnoticed, you start to feel less attached to your job. If you don’t want your employees to leave for greener pastures, here are a few ways you can show your appreciation for the hard work they do…
Say thank you: When you tell your employees that you’re thankful for the work they do, it gives them a sense of worth. Anytime you hear positive things about an employee, pass that information along. You don’t have to throw a party, but hearing that you’re doing good work feels good. It means even more when you find out it came from a coworker or a member.
Put them in the right place: Each one of your employees has different motivations. By getting to know your employees on a personal level you can help them work towards their goals and dreams. Help each employee grow in a way that will give them greater value and help them chase their career dreams.
Give them freedom: Employees who have shown the ability to handle responsibility should be given the opportunity to make decisions on their own. Help your employees take ownership in the company by investing in their development, so they can grow into the leaders of tomorrow.
