Employee success is often a direct reflection of the culture, style and attitude displayed by the management of a business. So matching management styles with employee goals can promote success and employee satisfaction. It can also help unlock and attain employees’ aspirations. The best way to achieve success: Continually strive to build trusting relationships between employers and employees. Developing trust can enable employees to feel empowered in their jobs, take responsibility, and invest effort in their success. Here are some tips:
- Talk openly and honestly about business operations.
- Develop a strong line of communication where open discussion, constructive criticism, and positive reinforcement are highly valued.
- Be fair, objective and consistent with employee relations and policies.
Not only does building trust and mutual respect improve performance, it can also improve your company’s reputation and worth. For example, one study determined that treatment of employees directly affected the company’s stock performance and market valuation. This is a win-win situation.
