Research tells us that the primary reason people leave a new job within the first 12 months is because expectations are not met! It might be theirs, it might be yours. Providing your staff with a properly written job description, complete with KPIs, and then clear directions once they are on the job will increase the chance of them ‘getting it right’
Mutual understanding facilitates collaboration, harmony and highly productive working relationships. Put simply, people who understand the ‘why’, the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ feel more informed and confident and perform better than employees who don’t. Pair it with authenticity and you’re on a winning streak!
‘To thine own self be true’ (William Shakespeare) is great advice in all relationships and those at work are no different. Being true to yourself, transparent with your team and honouring their unique selves improves your relationship with others, and increases your business productivity. Speculation and conflict persist when transparency is absent.
‘Actions speak louder than words’, is never truer than in the employer-employee relationship. When you align your words with your actions and follow through, you build trust and credibility, increasing productivity, loyalty and advocacy. You give it, you’ll get it back!
Research tells us that people perform better when they have a clear understanding of what is expected of them. But, did you know that only 33% of employees are actively engaged when they are at work?
HRM helps many businesses create satisfying, rewarding and productive work environments. Trusting people, empowering them, holding them accountable and recognizing their contribution will ensure your team performs at its best and guarantees your business success!
