How many people really like going to work? Unless you own your own business or work from home and have all the advantages that come with that, most people probably don’t. Unless it is their dream job, a job they love, they probably have to force themselves into work every day.
Is your business one that makes employees WANT to come to work? Is the work environment inviting, comfortable and relaxed? Are you challenging your employees, do you give them special and interesting things to do so that they don’t get bored? Do they have the chance to advance?
A happy, fun and challenging workplace usually will keep workers coming back, if the workplace isn’t up to par then you are likely to see more absences and employees that are no shows or just quit.
Making sure your employees get proper breaks and lunches will help with controlling absences also. Who wants to work a 9, 10 or 12 hour shift without a break? Everyone needs to be able to get up and clear their head now and again and if your employees aren’t allowed to do this they will become despondent and most likely will be looking for another job.
Do you have benefits? Vacation, sick and personal days? Can you afford to give your employees all or at least a couple of these? If your business has very few employees little things that show you care like company picnics or get togethers can really boost moral!
Talk to your employees, ask them how things are going, what you can do to better their work environment, if they have any ideas on changes that can be made to improve the workplace etc. Many times that little gesture is all an employee needs to boost their morale!
