Rewarding and keeping your employees, direct reports or anyone that you work with happy should be a priority for yourself or your leadership teams. It doesn’t matter what you build, what you sell or even provide to customers, you can’t do it without the people that work for you.

We all strive for that harmony that keeps the company moving forward – sometimes it is the little things outside of bonuses, perks and paid days off that will make a difference for your teams.

This past week I focused on ways and examples that you can use as a starting point.

Monday Update
This week I’m going to step outside eCRM and focus on leadership and your employees.

Rewarding and keeping your employees, direct reports or anyone that you work with happy should be a priority for yourself or your leadership teams. It doesn’t matter what you build, what you sell or even provide to customers, you can’t do it without the people that work for you.

Money doesn’t always buy happiness, put showing appreciation, recognition and respect can speak volumes and be just want someone needs.

Tuesday Update
Another day, another example of ways of rewarding your employees with appreciation and recognition. Tuesday example…

Make work fun/Create a productive atmosphere – Work doesn’t have to be boring and to the grind in order for people to get things done. It is good to break up the day and weeks with outside events or even events/games within the office. Make the work space fun and inviting.

Wednesday Update
Another day, another example of ways of rewarding your employees with appreciation and recognition. Wednesday’s example…

Cut Back on Meetings – The countless number of meetings that team members are in on a daily basis is almost staggering – not sure how people are able to get stuff done. Take a team meeting and cut it down to a 10 minute standing meeting and give time back to your team members so they can focus on what they need to be doing to drive the business.

Thursday Update
Thursday’s example of ways of keeping your employees happy and productive.

Keep Them Informed – The sharing of information and the passing of information down is important in helping your employees know what is going on with the business – it will also help them make decisions based on the information that is passed down. Nobody likes to work in the blind and your team is no different.

Friday Update
Friday’s example of ways of keeping your employees happy and productive.

Ask For Their Input – When you ask your team for their input, they are more likely to accept a business decision more readily than if they were not ask their thoughts or opinions. This will also give you insight from other team members that have a different perspective that you do.

Saturday Update
Thought for the day and it is more important than your career, it is about you:

Life lessons from Christopher Walken:  “None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”
