“Employees are a company’s greatest asset – they’re your competitive advantage. You want to attract and retain the best; provide them with encouragement, stimulus, and make them feel that they are an integral part of the company’s mission “ by – Anne M. Mulcahy
Employees are the most valuable asset for any organization. An organization cannot perform only with the help of machinery, furniture or other non-living entities. It needs human beings who work together and perform to achieve the goals and objectives of the organization. When a company loses a good employee it causes insecure and negative feeling among them towards their job as well as towards the organization. For the employees, an organization must come first and all their personal interests should take a back seat. The success and failure of any organization are directly proportional to the labor put by each and every employee.
5 Easy Steps to build the relationship with employees:
Familiarize new employees with your company during the orientation process
Often times, employees are handed a copy of the personnel manual or handbook and are asked to read this on their own time. Rather than simply collecting required onboarding formalities, utilize this opportunity to provide an overview of the company and familiarize employees with key colleagues and departments they will be collaborating with in their new role within the organization. From the very first day, they should feel as part of the organization.
Time to time educate your employees
Design an employee development program. It’s a well-known fact that employee development programs offer an invaluable contribution to the company. Let employees work with a mentor and cross-train in different areas of the company. They’ll gain knowledge, abilities, and experience that will serve the company in the future.
Timely review with each employee as per their role and responsibility
Review meetings play an important role in building the relationship with your employees. Work with the employee to establish goals and provide feedback regarding their progress and overall performance. Review each employee’s job description with them so that they will also have a clear idea of what responsibilities are required for their position.
Focus on learning and development:
The quality of the employer-employee relationship affects each employee’s morale, productivity and, ultimately, the company’s bottom line. By giving your employees opportunities to develop new skills, grow their knowledge, and lead new efforts, you’re promoting natural learning and growth within the organization.
Maintain harmonious communication with employees:
Respond to employee questions and concerns in a timely and professional manner. Employees must be comfortable with each other for a healthy environment at work. It is the prime duty of the superiors and team leaders to discourage conflicts in the team and encourage a healthy relationship among employees. In the matter of complaints or investigations, follow-up with the employee to ensure that the matter has been resolved. Be sure to include as much information as possible in your response so the employee thoroughly understands the reason the decision was made.
