The workforce of an organisation is considered as its substantial asset. There is no doubt that business just couldn’t do without its workforce. Being a key part of your business, it is essential on organisation end to pay any attention to their need and make necessary steps in the direction. That may seem a common thing to many but you will be shocked to know that not every business unit incorporate that. To top of it, many organisation are totally indifferent and didn’t even realise that their staff is feeling ignored and deprived of some essentials in the workspace.
We are here to discuss why you as the employer should be very considerate when it comes to your employees’ needs and engagement. They are one vital force that drives the organisation to a better future. Here are some reasons as of why you need to incorporate this into your organisation as well:
It depicts that you care for your employees:
Some employers consider employees nothing more than another piece of equipment hired for fulfilling some tasks. In contrary, they are more than that and are people with normal human emotions, thoughts, opinions and skills that are manifested in favour of organisation. It’s a simple “give and take”. If you’re unable to fulfil their needs, you can’t just get the best of them.
It goes a lot further than basic remuneration; you have to make them feel valued. Everyone prefers a healthy environment to work in. It’s not just the organisational growth you should target, it’s the organisational growth with the growth of every person working for it including your employees.
It also boosts staff retention rates
This is quite obvious; an unhappy workforce looks for better options to work in and for their personal growth as well. The end result is employee turning your organization over to work for another unit where they feel more valued. But take it another way, if the organisation is able to make their employees content and engaged, then there is no problem of employee turnover based on something as mere as feeling ignored and not content. A happy workforce is obviously more loyal and dedicated.
It will boost their productivity as well
Many organisation still believes that rewards will spoil their workforce rather than working as a source of boosting their productivity. Well, obviously they are wrong. Rewards which are something as elementary as little coffee breaks or breaks to enjoy some time in playroom will also be a breath of fresh air under the pile of work. This little break will increase their productivity as well. You don’t have to pressurise them to stick the 8 working hours in working as well. The 8 working hours with little breaks can surpass the productivity of 8 long working hours without any break.
It’s as simple as being considerate when it comes to your employees' needs. If you engage with them on healthy terms, they will revert back with excellent performance for the organisation. Once you get a happy and motivated workforce, you can easily achieve all your targets.
