Owning a small business is rewarding, but at times it can be stressful. Although you can read a plethora of books on how to be a great boss, there will still be some trial and error! Ultimately, you want to create a place where your employees will stay, grow, and feel appreciated — things that, in the hustle and bustle of it all, can get overlooked. So, how do you keep a happy staff? The trick is to keep them constantly engaged, and here are just a few ways how:
Create Group Events
There is no better way for your employees to get to know each other than with a group outing, and there are so many options to choose from! Whether it’s a relaxing after work dinner or a mind-bending escape room, a group event will allow your employees the time to get to know one another and form a bond. Plus — it will show that you value them as people and would like to get to know them, too!
Offer Fun and Unique Trainings
Encouraging employees to learn is never a bad thing. One way to actively get your employees to continue the process is by making it user-friendly and fun! Host trainings, look into conferences and find ways that your staff can always be ahead of the curve. Encourage your employees to teach each other, too. This will give everyone a sense of purpose and growth, while ultimately keeping them happy and ready to strive for more!
Hear Your Employee’s Voice
Offering a free survey is one of the best ways to know where you are thriving and where you
need to improve. By asking for anonymous feedback, your staff will feel more comfortable being honest and open with their concerns. In the survey, you want to ask questions about their future, career goals, and their current likes/dislikes. It can open up your eyes to a whole new way of management!
Make The Office a Comfortable One
Fact: You and your employees likely spend a lot of time in your office, more often than you do in your own home! To make it a place people want to come to each day, make sure the working environment caters to their role. You want to give them space and the technology they need to do their job fully. Think of creating quiet workspaces, and adding snacks, plants, and music to make it an inviting and home-like experience for all!
