Factors That Affect Your Relationship With Employees

For new businesses or startups, one of the biggest challenges early-on is the development of a proper rapport with employees. Being a good boss takes a lot of social skills, and it’s normal to be a little intimidated or worried about starting out on the right foot! Here are some things to be aware of.

How to You Treat Them

Regardless of pay and benefits, the foundation of your company culture will be how your employees feel every day when they come into work. Even with the best wages on the market, if a given employee spends every workday feeling stressed or unwanted or pushed to the breaking point, they will leave the instant they find another job with comparable pay. Be sensitive. If you want the employees to care for the business like a family, then you should care about them as people, and not as lifeless pieces of a machine. Treat them with genuine respect, and their productivity will grow exponentially.

How You Communicate

It’s hard to overstate the importance of communication! Good communication can make the difference between an adaptable workplace and a one that engenders frustration. Every issue, from personal problems between employees to larger economic troubles that affect everyone, can be solved or weathered with communication. Employees feel trusted when you keep them in the loop. Talking openly and respectfully about what they can change will also cultivate better attitudes. According to CMOE, feedback can help your employees know what to do differently.

Knowing the Standard

Every job market has different expectations for employees. Some markets are infamously difficult and stressful, while others are broad and flexible. HubSpot reminds us that you should know those expectations well; that makes it easier for you to look for small ways to improve your employees’ relative experience. That might be in pay, benefits, or company culture, but think about the negative and positive suppositions that are placed on employees and how it can be improved within your business environment. Employees with experience in other businesses in similar markets will notice and appreciate it.

While some bosses prefer to take a hands-off approach to their relationships with their employees, the disappointing truth is that that often leads to miscommunication and some forms of resentment. If you want your employees to care about their company, then it’s only right that their company should care about them. And right now – that means you! So let your actions speak for themselves, and your business productivity will peak.
