You have many expectations of your employees, but that relationship is a 2-way street, with your employees looking to you to meet their expectations as well. Are you fostering respect and trust with your business management practices? The right employee management tips are integral to success.
What key business management skills do your employees expect you exhibit?
• The ability to select a superior staff.
Your staffing decisions are essential to meeting your business’ needs and upholding the culture of your organization. Don’t overlook existing employees, friends, colleagues, conferences and competitors for sourcing potential candidates. Temporary assignments help sidestep potential long-term problems and ensure a perfect fit.
• The capacity to provide excellent training.
Overlooking the importance of training can cost your business dearly. In-house training programs are essential in helping employees learn safety and operational procedures necessary for top-notch job performance.
• Compassionate employee management.
Including the identification of problems affecting office morale, and the ability to preserve it through the compassionate coaching or termination of those negatively affecting it.
• The forethought to establish clear employee guidelines.
Your employee handbook is the guide map for both new and existing personnel, helping those you’ve taken under-wing to understand what is expected of them – and what they should expect from you in return. Distribution to each and every employ and timely; annual updates are essential.
• A thorough understanding of the importance of necessary safety measures.
Including workers’ comp, general liability, property, and auto insurance coverages necessary to protect their livelihoods – and yours – should the unthinkable occur.
