Why Should You Care About Your Staff?
A basic question: one to which you should probably know the answer. Why should you care about your staff? Your staff are the people in whom you have trusted the day-to-day running of your company. They answer your phones, deal with your clients and make you your coffee (on occasion).
Wouldn’t you rather these interactions go as smoothly as possible?
What you put into people, is what you get out. This is as true in business as it is in life. Whether you deal with clients on a day-to-day basis, building relationships as you collaborate on projects together, or if you serve customers in a more fleeting way, you work with your employees every day. The manner in which you treat them and the respect you show them will dictate the level of respect they, in turn, will have for you, for your goals and for your company.
In short, if you need your employees to care about their job (and why wouldn’t you?) then you need to show your staff that you care about them. That you notice the effort they put in and that you appreciate the positive outcomes they produce.
Your staff are your company. If you care about your company, it is imperative that you care about your staff.
