Employees are the backbone of the company, but they've often overlooked as managers contend with hectic schedules and focus on an overload of pressing projects. In the process, a valuable resource may be bypassed.

It pays to pay attention to your employees' needs. Give them what they need and they'll give you improved productivity, innovative ideas, and top-notch results. For some tips on giving your employees what they need, read this week's Fulfillment Tips below.

Give Employees What They Need

If you want great employees, give them what they need to succeed. Here are five tips for turning good people into great staff members:

  1. When it comes to their jobs, your employees are the experts. So go right to the source by asking your staff to suggest ways to improve productivity and efficiency in their jobs.

  2. Some managers feel threatened by employees with superb skills, but those skills are the very reason they were hired. Help employees develop their strengths and become the best they can be. Not only will they help the department succeed and make you look good, but one of them will be ready to step into your role when you're promoted to the next level.

  3. Be ready and willing to provide whatever support your employees need to do their jobs well and feel fulfilled in their careers. Make sure they have the right tools, training, and resources.

  4. Give people a sense of the importance of the projects they're working on. Let them know, as specifically as possible, that they have a very real impact on the company and its customers.

  5. Provide feedback to your employees on a regular basis. Don't wait until the annual review. Instead, address any concerns immediately, and always let staff members know when they've done a great job on a project.

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
