Finding and hiring great workers is difficult enough, but finding, hiring, and then keeping great employees for the long haul is even more difficult.
It has been proven time and again that when you have the right employees in the right jobs doing the right things, that’s when productivity increases quickly. (And when productivity increases, so does profitability.)
However, great workers and employees want certain things from their employer. Yes, they recognize the fact that their employer has made an investment in them and expects a certain return on that investment. However, they also recognize that they do provide a tremendous return on the investment that their employer has made in them.
As a result, they want a few things in return.
The good news is that these are not outrageous things. In fact, they’re perfectly sensible and practical, and every employer should be able to provide them.
Below are five big things that workers want from their employers:
What employees do not want to see, especially your top workers, is somebody receiving preferential treatment from management (for whatever reason.) Being treated fairly is extremely important to employees.
Being treated with respect is also very important to your employees. And of course, when you don’t treat them fairly, they’re going to believe that you don’t respect them. (You can see how this can “snowball” out of control rather quickly.)
This falls in line with the first two items on our list. Being honest with your workers shows that you respect them. After all, if you expect them to be honest with you, then there’s no reason why they shouldn’t expect you to be honest with them.
Workers want to know what is happening at their place of employment, especially with anything that might affect their job or their employment situation. Communication is at the heart of transparency, and that is why you must strive to over-communicate with your workers whenever possible.
You don’t have to go overboard here, but workers want you to at least empathize somewhat if a situation arises that calls for it. They know the bottom line is that they must produce and be productive, but if we’re talking about your best workers and employees, then they should already be doing that.
