In the past year and a half, employees have had a chance to get a glimpse behind the corporate curtain. Now employees recognize what their companies really stand for and how much they really care about them.
The first thing you need to do as a business owner or leader is simple. You need to actually talk to your employees and treat them like humans. Contrary to what you might believe, it isn’t about the money. It’s all about recognition and value.
Talk with your people. Build a referral program. Empower your employees to be your brand ambassadors.
By investing in the talent you have, you’re leveling up all of your people, and everything will become so much more efficient. Your culture will be better. You will have happier people. You will have happier clients, which means you can then take on more business and continue building your business.
