Give Your Employees Some Personal Attention
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Nobody likes to be ignored. One of the most important things you can do as a manager or leader f an organization is to pay some personal attention to the people who work for you. People need personal attention the way an automobile needs maintenance. They are more productive when they get it. How can you provide the attention people need at work to produce better at work? How can you do it without playing favorites? The key to that is to devote the same amount of time to all employees.

Notice the work they do and compliment them. Notice any signs of improvement and acknowledge it. Employees want to be recognized that their hard work is noticed.

Notice the work that may not be up to standards. This let’s them know that you notice all aspects of their work. You won’t settle for sub-par performance. Ask why they did the work that way and if there is anything you can do to help them.

Take time to talk to your employees about their interests. Get to know the world they live in. The world of which they are the center. People love to talk about themselves, their hobbies or their children. Getting to know what interests them will give you a better understanding of how they think and why they perform the way they do at work. Good or bad. You’ll have a better insight.

Appreciate how important it is that their jobs be done well. Let them know how important they are to the company. Without your employees your job would be very difficult. If you don’t think so, have all your employees take the day off and see how much you get accomplished. You will definitely appreciate them when they return.

Give experience employees certain responsibilities. This makes them feel recognized and show that you have confidence in them. It also relieves you of some work but helps you develop your delegating skills.

Ask your employees for their suggestion on work problems. Remember, they do the work everyday and probably have some great ideas. Some employees are just waiting for you to ask them. They may not come to you if they feel there is no open door policy. So you have to go to them and ask.

Listen. Probably the biggest pay off. Most of the time it may be a personal and while you may not be able to do anything about it, you might be able to relieve some stress at work so they can cope with the problem. Sometimes just being there to listen helps them.

Keep in touch with the people who work for you.. Never let a good thought die. When you have something good to say share it with them. Nobody has ever been accused of giving too many compliments. Most people get far too little. Your employees will be a lot happier and do better work if they got more.
