5 Ways To Be The Company Everyone Wants To Work For

If you are looking for ways by which you can steer your company in the direction such that everyone wants to become a part of it, here are some of the different ways which you can use. 

Transparency

One of the key virtues of a workplace that tend to make it stand out from the others has to be the transparency level. Employees should be given the sense of feeling that no matter whether they are doing good or bad, things are always in the open. This factor in itself is known to foster the right sense of trust and thereby cements a better working relationship.

Incentives and Benefits

When employees put in their heart and soul to ensure their firm does well, it becomes your earnest duty to give something back to them. This is why as a firm; one should have the best reward sales goals in place and a good incentive program. Make sure to reward the employees for their good work and chip in with bonuses and gifts as and when applicable. This is also a great way to motivate them to walk the extra mile and do a little extra to ensure that your firm stays at the pedestal.

Equality 

All employees deserve to be treated equally. It is vital that a workplace steers clear of biasness, be it economic, gender, or any other type. The bottom-line remains the fact that when an employee doesn’t feel haunted by any sort of inferiority complex; they would be willing to give in their 100 percent and stick to the firm as well. 

For any company to prosper, it is important to offer the employees adequate training to treat everyone the same; regardless of their gender, religion, age, marital status, finances, or anything else. It should just be the work that should be the talking point of discussion. 

Inspiring Leadership 

A leader speaks volumes about the team they command. If your company has some of the most exemplary leaders who know how to keep the team inspired, the morale of the employees is sure to see a massive lift. 

This is why whether you work on the hiring process to seek the best of leaders or you offer training to help your employees hone the best of leadership skills, the idea is to ensure that your workplace reeks of the best of leaders who can inspire their team to stay motivated and put in their best foot forward. 

Healthy Camaraderie 

While we do understand that things tend to get competitive at the workplace, the focus should always be on engaging the right spirit of friendliness and camaraderie in a firm. When the employees look to have each other’s back rather than find ways to pull them down all the time, things are much more likely to take a turn for the good.

You can host events or have some sessions which would boost the kind of mutual respect and admiration which employees have for each other. Have things like free team lunches, group outings, camps, picnics, and more. Each of these activities is sure to have some bearing on improving the relations between the employees.

Conclusion

These are the best ways by which you can make your company one of the top-rated places wherein everyone wishes to work. It is the right dedication and the best of efforts that set one company apart from the rest. 

A company is known by the employees it has. No firm can prosper if the employees are not dedicated and willing to be a part of it. A strong and well-motivated workforce remains the key ingredient to success. So, keep these important points in mind and implement as much as you can. The changes should be there for you to see. 

Remember, success comes to those who are willing to toil hard for it.

Assembly Bill 3080 Is Bad for Jobs

Three years ago Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation on employment arbitration, saying he wanted to wait for the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the issue. Now the Supreme Court has spoken: Businesses can ask employees to sign arbitration agreements to settle employment disputes instead of going through costly and lengthy litigation. So it’s time for the governor to follow through with another veto.

Any attempt to contradict the recent Supreme Court ruling allowing arbitration in employment contracts, as proposed in Assembly Bill 3080 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, would, as you have warned in the past when you vetoed similar legislation, “result in years of costly litigation and legal uncertainty.” What we can guarantee is that signing this bad bill would certainly add to an already unstable and hostile environment for California employers and forcing a burden on them that does not exist in other states.

Under AB 3080, California businesses, especially in cases involving disputes over alleged sexual harassment or misconduct, would be victimized. Not only would businesses and employers face civil liabilities for any violations of AB 3080, but they could also face criminal charges as well.

Business owners must be able to operate in an environment that is fair and competitive, not one that is legally stacked against them.

It’s clear that as written, AB 3080 could be greatly misused and serve to help trial attorneys, not workers. It creates an environment where lawyers can troll for unsuspecting employees willing to sue their bosses, under the auspices of a large payday. The number of civil claims that could then result from this law would overwhelm the state’s judiciary system by, in effect, forcing all claims to be tried by a judge and jury.

Study says bosses need to stop doing THIS in 2018

Researchers Identify the Most Worst Boss Behavior

Leadership coach explains findings

Here is the most damaging boss behavior: A manager who has mood swings.

A recent study from University of Exeter found that leaders who exhibited “Jekyll and Hyde” behavior (switching between friendly and kind to volatile and critical) created the highest level of disengagement among employees.

“You might think that a boss who was sometimes friendly and magnanimous with his staff would earn some brownie points that would help ease hurt feelings when he later lost his temper,” says leadership coach Jack Skeen, who is the co-author (along with Greg Miller and Aaron Hill) of a new professional development book, The Circle Blueprint. “However, it’s just the opposite. Instead, employees begin to view their boss as unpredictable. Since they never know which boss they are going to encounter (the nice guy or the grouchy guy), they are constantly walking on eggshells and afraid to be themselves or voice their ideas.”

However, Skeen assures managers that they don’t have to be ‘one-note’ happy managers all the time, either. “Employees understand that their bosses are human and that they have bad days,” says the Fortune 500 coach, “But you can be disappointed or displeased with your staff without losing control and attacking your employees on a personal level.”

To help leaders grow into their full potential, Skeen has co-created a self-assessment tool to help leaders assess themselves in key areas, including their power, purpose, humility and independence. This assessment is available for free here, to anyone who has purchased The Circle Blueprint. “Until leaders are aware of how they are impacting the people around them, specifically their employees, they are going to continue hitting a professional plateau.”
