Many recent studies have recognized human resources as the most important asset of any organization as a result of the critical impact of human capital in key business areas such as driving customer satisfaction, product/service innovation, growth and overall profitability.

The big question is; how have you managed your employees to get the best from them?

Truth is, the result of good employees’ management is outstanding job performance while on the contrary, it leads to low turnover.

Here are six smart ways to get the best from your employees: 

  1. Institute a Positive Corporate Culture

The foundation you build for your business sets the tone for organizational effectiveness, employee relations, financial performance, customer satisfaction, and productivity. Studies show that employee performance can be improved having a workplace characterized by positive and virtuous practices like caring for colleagues as friends, providing support for one another, avoiding blame and forgiving mistakes, inspiring one another at work and treating one another with respect, gratitude, trust and integrity.

Furthermore, the bottom-line benefits of these practices was summarized; “When organizations institute positive, virtuous practices, they achieve significantly higher levels of organizational effectiveness, including financial performance, customer satisfaction, and productivity.

  1. Communicate Performance Feedback

Knowing one’s scorecard with regard to job performance is vital and sets subsequent course of actions.  Employees’ work inputs can be in two forms: working contrary or effectively to set goals. Even when an employee is working effectively toward accomplishing set goals, truth is, there’s always room for improvement.

This improvement can’t happen when your employees don’t get frequent performance feedback. Also give constructive criticism to underperforming employees and praise for jobs well done.

  1. Have a Conducive Work Environment

Most labor laws require the property owner to keep their environment reasonably safe. It’s your responsibility (through your safety department) to make the workplace environment safe for everybody.

This is very important. The care system in your workplace will absolutely show on your employees’ work input and the piles of workers compensation lawsuits you have to deal with. A poor work environment isn’t good for business growth and survival.

  1. Encourage Creativity and Suggestions

Businesses hardly thrive without chains of communication. Just as you communicate business plans, job descriptions, set goals, work directives and performance feedbacks to your employees, you’re equally required to listen to them for quality ideas, constructive criticisms and suggestions.

Employees who are given the freedom to be creative will take the initiative to seek new ways of accomplishing set tasks with limited business resources. Apart from this, they'll also put in incredible effort to ensure that set goals are achieved in an efficient and timely manner.      

  1. Create an Attractive Workplace 

Employees want an attractive office design with bright colors, good lighting, latest technological hardware, exercise facilities and healthcare, spacious office and lovely canteen to inspire them to want to work there. Once they are inspired, they’ll be automatically motivated to give their best.

Ensure your workplace is also clean and safe for everybody to avoid slip and fall injury, back injury and mental stress which invariably affect employees’ job performance.

  1. Reward Outstanding Performers

Reward outstanding employees to spur others to put in incredible effort towards accomplishing their set goals. Many business owners detest additional expenditure. Who wouldn’t? However, don’t joke with employees’ welfare especially packages that can motivate them to do their best.

Purchasing gifts in bulk and using voucher code are ways you can minimize cost. Remember, it’s doesn’t have to be monetary rewards. Kind gestures like open praise, recognition, handshake from the CEO, flex-time and other incentives are ways to reward your employees for a job well done.   

Remember, reward or gift brings out the child in us. Always link high job performance with reward system and watch how your employees’ work input will increase.
