It can be difficult to keep employees dedicated and motivated at all times. However, if you are able to get them excited about your company, retention rates will go up and turnover rates will go down. In this blog post we'll outline 5 ways that will help you get your employee's excitement levels high!
1. Ensure your vision is bigger than yourself.
People are always more passionate about a cause they believe in, and it's your goal to be that cause. It can be hard to think big enough at first, but as you allow your vision to become bigger than yourself, you begin to build a team to support that vision and essentially it becomes a noble cause everyone pulls towards.
2. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.
Everyone has incredible strengths that often get overlooked as the position they are in tends to overcast what else they are capable of. Take the time to get to know your teammates on a deeper, more innate level. One of my favorite tools is the the KOLBE; this tool helps you to get a clear understanding of how your team members operate and in what ways you can complement their strengths.
3. Listen to what your employees really needs.
Building a company that takes the time to truly listen in on what employees need can be an incredible game changer for your business. It's true this level of inquiry can bring out the elaborate wants, but digging deeper you may find it may not be as costly or time consuming that most believe. For example, giving employees the flexibility to work from home or office is a great option as most have adapted to the remote lifestyle.
4. Support their individual goals.
Employers that support individual goals will get the same dedication back from their employees. Employees' top personal goals typically involve work and home life balance and financial stability. This can look like having readily available resources and tools, such as financial wellness packages, to educate employees and help them meet their personal goals.
5. Build collaboration on all fronts.
Building a team that works together can be tricky if you don't have clear values and a clear understanding of who you are as the CEO. Your team should not only fill in areas that aren't your greatest strengths, but they should also work together to fill in each others. Build collaboration on all fronts so you can achieve your goals faster and more efficiently.
