No company can survive for long with employees who are lukewarm or uncommitted to their work. Ensuring your staff remains enthusiastic and senses their contributions are valued is pivotal to your success.
Effective communication consistently comes in first whenever our company asks executives about the best way to improve the enthusiasm of their workforce. In one of our most recent surveys, nearly half (48 percent) of executives interviewed cited better communication as the best remedy for low morale. Especially during times of change, it is very difficult to overcommunicate.
The other half of communication is listening. Encouraging staff to offer their insights, ideas and perspectives gives them a greater sense of commitment to the job at hand. In between meetings, try to maintain an open-door policy as much as feasible to make sure employees know they are welcome to come to you with both ideas and concerns.
