My employees and I

My employees and I

Someone once defined employees as people we use to get what we want.

I shrugged. What a cold definition! Yet, it seems this is exactly the way many Entrepreneurs and Employers see the people who work for them.

I think this is a very poor approach to things, if you treat your employees well, you will always get more in return. Money is not the only thing that motivates people to work for you. An employee once told his boss, “you only get what you pay us for when we could have also used our brains for you for free”.

You should always take good care of your staff, it is only rare employees that will treat your customers better than you treat them. Treat everyone with respect, treat them as adults, back them up to make decisions, truly empower them.
