Five ways to keep your employee happy with out offering more money.

  • Being transparent and honest with your employees, help them feel valued and respected.
  • As an employer, saying “thank you” is a single but it effective way to show your appreciation.

When employees has a casual stress free time at work. They’re going to be more productive in general. As a business owner it’s your job to establish procedures that will jeep your employee happy and motivated, because happy employees are more creative and productive, and less likely to quit. While more money can help put a smile on your employees faces, it is not the only way to keep them cheerful.

1. Always say thank you.

Saying thank you, it’s the preferred way worker’s want to received positive feedback, according to a survey of 1,500 workers conducted by Rewardgateway. An employee engagement platform, intact. 75% of  u.s employees surveyed agreed that motivation and company morale will improve if managers simply thank workers, in realtime for a work well done.

Gary Beasley, co-founder and CEO of Roofstock put it this way. “These kudos cost nothing but provide Important public recognition for a job well done, effectively compensating people in form of social currency.

In my experience employees rarely become unhappy for solely over money. When they do become disenchanted, it is usually because they don’t like their boss. Aren’t engaged or feel like they have stopped learning. Having a positive culture and workplace environment helps a lot.

2. Making employee part of the big picture:

Frequent communication on company happening individual and department direction. And a big picture company direction make all difference in employee happiness.

Kurt lewin talking about world ward 11 with Japan, stated; in such a situation no special effort is required to keep morale high. The very combination of a definitive objective, the belief in final success, and the realistic facing great difficulties is high morale. The individual who makes extreme efforts and accepts great risks for worthwhile goals doesn’t feel like he is making a sacrifice, instead he merely feels like he is acting naturally.

OK, so most companies are not fighting a war, yet in todays workplace there are many dire scenarios of which the employees are unaware simply because the lenders have not shared the real pain they are in.

Employees plays a role in the company’s performance. It is important that they know there role. This gives them a sense of purpose. It answers the question, “why does it matters.” Some people always take great pride in their work. They know it reflects on them. Some people only push themselves when others are relying on them to their part. Sharing the picture helps to get the most out of this people. Getting the small thing right leads to bigger success.

3. Offer more vacation time:

Reward your highest performer with incremental vacations days. These employees are your superstar, so you can be confident they will get their work done as well as enjoy a few extra days of well-deserved time off with family and friends.

Clinical psychologist Deborah muchem shared with ABC news that not only are vacations good now but if don’t take them. You’ll lose the ability to relax “she said” without time and opportunity to do this. The neurons connection that produce feelings of calm and peacefulness become weaker, making it actually more difficult to shift into less-streessed modes,” muchem said. “What neuro-science is showing is that we  requires downtime in order for our bodies to go through the process of restoration. It is only when we are safe from external stresses that our bodies can relax enough to activate restoration.

Apart from health benefits on the employees side. Having each employee out of the office for a week (or more) without the ability to handle emails or log into their computer means that another employee has to handle it. That allows management to find out about performance problems and other issues before they grow too large.

All this are positive benefits to you and your company. It’s your job to ensure that your team take the time off. If you see an employee that is working more than they should, sit down and encouraged that he’s working more than should. Try to encourage them to take a vacation.

It’s Important. When you give your employees a break in your company and your employee will reap the benefits.

4. Priorities work life balance:

A good work-life balance, said Chris chancery, career expert and CEO of amplio recruiting, has numerous positive effects, including lower risk and burnout and a greater sense of well-being. This not only benefits employees but employers too.

Employers who are committed to providing environments that support work-life  balance for their for their employees, can save on costs. Experience fewer cases of absenteeism, and enjoy a more loyal and productive workforce. Employer that offers optional telecommuting or flexible work schedules can help employees have a better work-life balance.

To engage the workforce and remain competitive, it’s no longer sufficient to focus sorely on benefits. Top employer create a environment where employees  feel connected to the organization. And have a positive work experience. That’s part of a rich, fulfilling life.

5. Encourage communication in common areas:

Businesses should take steps to create spaces where employees can easily communicate and share ideas. Casual conversations in the break room can become collaborative conversations. Make it inviting and effective with nice furniture, tables, and snacks and beverages if possible.

Because good communication is an integral element. To win when with employees.
