Question: What are some of the key things that employers can to do foster good relationships with their employees?
Answer: I've been focusing lately on three less obvious approaches to help employers foster better relationships with their employees. First, they should be seen as real people with unique strengths, weaknesses and flaws who care deeply about the mission of the organization and the well-being of the employees. As the saying goes, they don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Second, employers need to remove hurdles in the workplace that are making it difficult for employees to do their best work. Employees need to know employers are there to help them succeed. The last thing employers must do is to be consistent in the way they deal people, their mood and personality, and their reaction to problems. In our ever-changing workplace, the importance of this type of consistency is often overlooked and its impact on the bottom line is unappreciated. Login for more...
