A recent article, 7 Strategies for Creating a Culture of Caring at Your Business by Derek Carpenter says that caring work environments lead to more efficiency and positivity, improved interpersonal engagements, better customer relations, and a healthier quality of life among employees.
Here are a few initial steps to develop a caring culture to build an enviable dream team in plug and play offices.
- Allow your employees to explore their passions/talents.
Improve individual work experiences by allowing employees to discover their passions and to occasionally trying to test their initiatives while remaining true to the company’s mission and vision. When they commit mistake, help them rebound without judgment.
- Share information whenever possible.
Be transparent to prevent gossips and destructive rumors among the workforce. Give your employees a stake in the company— You can book a meeting room and conduct regular update meetings with your team to openly discuss and answer their concerns and queries. Trust is a direct outcome of transparency. It helps employees feel that they are respected and that they belong. Most people strive to be a part of something bigger.
- Be straightforward about performance goals.
Be clear about your expectations from the very start of the recruitment process. When employees know what management expects of them, they become inspired and engaged.
- Provide competitive compensation.
Offer a fair compensation package based on market rates. It’s impossible to keep talented workers if you aren’t willing to pay them wages that make them feel satisfied.
- Offer career advancement.
Offer training, workshop, seminar and even professional development assistance to top players as rewards to let them know that their contributions are highly appreciated and recognized.
