If you own or operate a small business, you probably enjoy being your own boss.
The perks of making your own schedule and managing yourself are great, right? Ultimately, however, there will come a time when you need to hire on a team—because no one can do everything on their own.
Perhaps the most important part of building a collaborative, productive, and happy team is making sure they’re set up for success.
Provide all the necessary tools, training, and support they need—and if you’re ever unsure of exactly what they need, regularly ask. If you don’t, you could risk a serious drop in morale.
Companies with disengaged employees are outperformed by their competition by 202%, so don’t let this happen to you.
Now that you know the importance of keeping up your team’s morale, how do you do it?
From employee perks to weekly happy hours, make sure that your employees know that you care about their happiness just as much as their productivity.
