Identify any hugely successful company and, after doing a spot of research, you’ll most likely find that it’s a workplace where employees are highly valued and genuinely love their jobs. While some leaders and managers will still prefer an autocratic approach, you will probably stand a greater chance of success by making employee morale a priority.
Australian payroll and contractor management company Ayers produced the infographic below, which demonstrates the clear link between employee engagement and business success. In workplaces where employees are happy in their work, the likely result is more collaboration, more motivation, greater productivity and greater profitability. Contrast that with a workplace where staff are suppressed and miserable. They might not co-operate with one another, absenteeism could become rife, deadlines get missed, productivity suffers and the business struggles to stay afloat. It doesn’t take years of management training to identify which situation is preferable.
Take a look at the infographic to see how managers can keep employees motivated and willing to go the extra mile for the good of the company.
