If you run a company that has many people working under you or if you are a manager of such a department at a very large firm, you may notice that you employees look to you as the soul of their workplace. Being in such a position makes you their caretaker, and in order to facilitate their continued support of you, you need to show them that you appreciate them. Here are a few ways how:
Treat Them for Special Occasions
Be it Christmas, New Year’s Eve or even pay day, having all of your employees dress up well and meet up for food, drink and dancing will always be taken in good spirit. To do this, you can either choose one out of a bunch of party venues Lake Macquarie available to you for hire and have someone handle the food and drink. It is as easy as that to show your workers that they are essential to the wellbeing of your company and that you are grateful for their service towards it and you.
Make a Home
This may seem absurd, but it is of utmost importance that you find somewhere close by, like a kid-friendly or family restaurant that you can introduce to your workers as their “hang out” place. People may need somewhere to unwind from the stresses of work before heading home or a place to grab coffee or breakfast on the way to work – your providing them with an option shows them that you are aware of their daily struggle, that you empathize with them and that you are willing to go the extra mile to keep them happy.
Acknowledge Personal Accomplishments
This may seem miniscule, but if you can get together a cake, a few candles and a small gift for an employee’s birthday, decorate his or her workspace on that day with help from a few other colleagues and make his or her day really special. You can also take the initiative to celebrate other personal achievements like getting engaged, getting married, having a baby and earning a degree and graduating with honours. The psychology is simple: you show the people that work for you that you are invested in them on a level deeper than their being machines that work for you, and it is guaranteed that they will develop loyalty towards you and will want to please you with the standard of your work.
At the end of the day, team work does make the dream work – make sure your team is happy and everything else will fall into an efficient space.
