As much as it’s imperative for any business to find the right employee, it’s just as important to be a good employer. Why I hear you ask? “Employees are adults and should be able to work under any condition!”
Nope, not even close!
Just think about it for a couple of seconds, what would be the point of finding the perfect candidate for a position, only to have to start everything all over again in a couple of months because YOU are not creating the right environment for him/her to truly flourish?
Now I’m not talking about an environment where you are buddy-buddy with your employees, that would never work. I’m talking about an environment where employees and employers share a mutual respect. Because without the one, the other one simply wouldn’t exist.
With mutual respect comes motivation, dedication and ultimately innovation!
According to MerchantProExpress, a good employer has the following qualities:
Good communicator: A good employer will always keep their employees in the loop in terms of company performance and goals.
Dedicated: If you aren’t invested in the company’s success, why should your employees be?
Understands a work-life balance: A good employer recognises that overworking employees will lead to stress and frustration, and poor productivity.
Open to new ideas and feedback: A good employer encourages employees to share feedback, rather than being dismissive.
Recognises employee accomplishments: A good employer will review work, offer feedback, acknowledge hard work in a worthwhile way.
