Businesses of all sizes tend to focus on the growth and profit of their company. This is totally understandable as it’s the only way a business is going to survive and thrive in a fast-moving and heavily saturated market. However, all too often, crucial parts of what makes a business so successful, aren’t made a priority, and worse; forgotten. This happens to employees and team members a lot, and it can be extremely damaging to a business, not to mention the individuals who work there. An unhappy workforce is an unhealthy part of the business; it’s the core of how everything operates and needs to be treated as the heart of the brand.

Therefore, it could be time to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to keep your team as happy as possible. Not to say that they’re being treated badly; it’s just worth investing now so that their motivation is high and they’re dedicated to working hard for you and the business. It’s also always nice to enter a studio or office space that feels upbeat and positive; it’s the best way to get the work done that’s needed. The following are some tips, ideas, and inspiration on some areas that you can boost so that you have a joyful, loyal team of employees.

Pay Fairly And On Time

The best way to ensure that an employee sticks with your company, and does the best job they can is to ensure that you are meeting and exceeding the industry’s basic pay rate. You don’t have to be excessive with people’s wages and salaries; however, they’ll feel appreciated and willing to go the extra mile, if they’re satisfied and happy with the weekly or monthly payslip. Utilize companies like SDWorx to ensure that money is hitting everyone’s account in a timely manner and that nobody is struggling to pay their bills due to late payments. You want your team to feel like they have a secure and financially safe place to work so they can enjoy the work they do and not have to look elsewhere for their income.

Give Feedback And Make Criticism Constructive

Keep an eye on the work people are doing so that they can keep up the good work and improve on whatever isn’t quite enough. Regular feedback and communication about a person’s work, make them feel like an integral part of the business (which they are). Therefore take the opportunity whenever you can to tell people when they’re doing great or excelling in something; make them feel appreciated. Of course, you’ll need to help people do better at times, so keep it positive and constructive when you do.

Enjoy Team Building And Socials

This may sound obvious, but team-building activities work! Don’t make them an annual thing that people dread; make them something people can’t wait for, and at regular intervals throughout the year. Informal social events are also great for team bonding and something fun to look forward to if the business has done well, so keep them going!
