Irrespective of the type of business that a company deals in, identifying critical skills, selecting and developing talent is quite imperative. A company that invests in employee engagement by creating a work environment that provides them with a healthy work-life balance and offers a fair salary that justifies their inputs. A company that invests in providing training to improve the productivity of its employees and help them excel in their work, is actually making a long-term investment in its staff. It is a well-known fact that long-term investments help you harness bigger rewards, similarly, such companies can expect their employees to perform better as the employees feel more satisfied.
On the contrary, if a company does not reward employees who are the high-performers, and does not encourage the under performers to push themselves to do more, it creates a bad work environment. Innovation, fresh ideas, and effective solutions will not come out; or simply put an environment that does not reward excellence, promotes mediocrity and hence the yield would be nothing more than average. In such an environment, the high performers of the team either start feeling overworked trying to cover up for the ones who are putting in little or no effort, or they might just adopt the same attitude and lose passion about work. In either case, the manager is stuck with a team that is unmotivated and probably a lot of backlogs.
Did you know that 75% of workers think of their boss as the worst and the most stressful part of their job? Are you are starting to develop a feeling that there must be something that you as a manager are doing wrong?
