When you treat your staff with appreciation they will go above and beyond, to help your business grow. They feel respected for their efforts, feel an important part of your business going forward. Afterall, these are ones who help you to acquire and retain new business, keeping clients/customers happy is a team performance. There are so many other options and choices out there for clients. You need a happy, ready to go, secure employee base. You don’t
want a half-hearted effort by an unfulfilled work force.
Encourage them to share their ideas and feedback with
you and your team.
Employees are often afraid to share their ideas and feedback with their employers. But it is
essential for the company's growth, and your employees will feel more valued if they know
they have a voice in the company.
Give them a voice, offer brainstorming sessions and you will find a productive team spirit
Socialize with your employees
Organize an informal, after-work drinks meetup, outside of the office, the team will feel more
relaxed in sharing their thoughts without the formal surroundings of the office.
A fixed amount of cash can be given to the bar manager, so nobody must feel it needs to
come out of their day-to-day expenses. It’s a well-deserved treat.
Celebrate Team Events
When you remember and celebrate an employee’s birthday you will be making a kind
memory for them. A small gift from you with a card will make him/her feel special.
Announce it to the team openly so more birthday wishes can be shared to that person.
Work from Home
Your staff will often get tired of the daily commute either by car or public transport, with
hundreds of others, all in a rush to get the train to be at work on time. Offer work from home
days to give a break from this. Perhaps a Monday and a Friday, as a suggestion to avoid the
Monday morning blues and the end of the week relieve that it’s over for another week. Not
everyone will enjoy their weekend knowing it all starts again on Monday morning. Help them
to enjoy a more relaxed weekend and you will see gratitude in abundance.
Offer a casual dress day, organize a relaxed lunch once a month, providing office snacks,
sandwich selections, veggies, and dips, followed by ice cream! This could be integrated as an
informal business brainstorming session when minds will be more relaxed and open to
thoughts and suggestions for the business. Again, listen to their feedback and ideas. They will
feel appreciated for the opportunity without judgement.
Remember everyone, young or old, loves ice cream. We all have wonderful memories of the
ice cream truck singing along the street.
Book Danny’s Ice Cream Truck to arrive at the end of the lunch, offering everyone’s favorite
flavors. Here at Danny’s, we will make your relaxed day a day to remember. We can offer
our own suggestions, by our extensive past experiences, of how to make it special for you.
Set a budget for these days, it will be well worth it to keep your employees interested and
keen to continue working as part of your team.
Retain your Staff
What you don’t need is a fast turnover of staff, it presents negativity with other colleagues.
Sit back and take in the smiling, grateful faces.
