Appreciate your Staff
Any corporation should appreciate their customers and cater to them to the best of their abilities. Too common, though, is the approach that customers come first. Yes, it’s true that without the customers, there would be no business. But what about your staff? It’s a typical perspective to see employees as expendable and highly replaceable. Corporations that take an opposite approach to employees and staff relations have a higher rate of success, lower rates of attrition and higher rates of employee retention. And guess what? Happy employees make for happy customers. See how that works? Appreciate your staff, and they will take your business to the upper echelons of business and society as a whole.
Employees need to know that they’re appreciated. Employee appreciation can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Naturally, it should happen during employee evaluations, but those are also a time of constructive criticism. They need to know that they are appreciated, and this should be demonstrated in times other than performance reviews and evaluations. What better way to accomplish just that with some solid corporate entertainment?
Consider this: the morale among your fourth floor junior broker pool is flagging, and hard. You’ve tried the pep talks. You’ve tried breakfast in the break room once a week, for good ole bagel Wednesday. You’ve even tried slackening the no-earbuds policy. But none of it is working. You know why? They know you’re stuck. Your staff knows that you’re throwing darts at the problem and hoping something will stick. How about thinking outside of the box and really wowing them? Show them that they matter, and the smiles on their faces – while they translate to dollars from your customers– are valuable to you, simply because you value them.
After the next seminar, plan to book corporate entertainment to show your appreciation. There are so many options out there, and you can tailor your selection to your staff. Live music, complete with a band or even dancers, is sure to be a hit, no matter your crowd.
Do you have several “class clowns” among your crew? Consider booking a professional comedian. From motivational speakers to team-building workshops, from party bands to a gameshow night, there is so much variety out there that you can even show your appreciation quarterly. Talk about a morale boost!
