Happiness and hard work aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, you and your team will be more productive if you feel valued and enjoy what you do.
It’s easy to forget your staff when you’re busy with the day to day, but make sure they know how valued they are. They can’t read your mind, you actually have to tell them. You’ll be surprised the difference it makes to moral and productivity. A happy team is a productive team.
Aside from regularly checking in with your team, it’s also a great idea to create Personal Development Plans for each and every team member. Everyone likes to feel they are progressing and to know that progression is being monitored and valued.
Looking after your team is vital for any business – whether you are a service or product business, your staff are the people delivering your vision. Make sure they know how important they are.
