Showing your employees you care about them, not only as employees but also has human beings, is very important to the growth and success of your company.
When employees feel valued and cared-for at work, they tend to be happier, more productive and want to stay with the company.
So, what are some things you can do as employers to show your team you care?
1) Listen to them
This may seem like an obvious one, but many employers could do this better. Many employers listen to their employees on terms of the business, but not necessarily life. And yes, they go hand-in-hand. What is it that your employees want and need? What would make them happier at work? Ask these types of questions and then just listen!
2) Celebrate their Life Events
Just because you are their employer, does not mean you get to ignore their life events. Did someone get engaged? Have a baby? Move to a new home? Have a birthday? Celebrate their life successes by having an office party or sending them something like a PeopleProud Gift Box.
3) Create Opportunities for Growth
As an employer, you should create opportunities for both professional growth and personal growth. As human-beings, we naturally want to grow. We spend 1/3 of our lives at work which means we want to grow professionally and personally while at work. If you can offer opportunities for growth, it will help with employee happiness and retention - while also making your employees more knowledgeable. This is a win-win!
With all the things that go on at a company, sometimes it can be hard to remember to show your employees you care. I’d recommend reviewing these topics quarterly to see how you can improve your employee engagement, retention and happiness.
