Get to Know Your Employees
While knowing your customers is a well-recognized and common business practice, knowing your employees is a lesser-known virtue, even though it could be argued that knowing your employees is every bit as important as understanding your customers.
Employees are any company’s most important resource and the better you know them, the better you are able to keep them happy, engaged, and help them reach their fullest potential.
Even if you knew your customers extremely well, if you don’t know how to connect with your employees first, you might miss out on opportunities to build trust and convey essential information to your employees, hence also negatively influencing your customer relationships.
Given the paramount value of employees, it is staggering to see how atrocious the global employee engagement statistics are these days. Studies show that only 13% of the global workforce is engaged, which is causing companies serious problems, and they don’t know what to do to fix the problem.
The answer is not simple, but luckily it is easy to get started on the right path.
Start with making sure that all of the important employee details are in Venus.
To improve employee engagement, you need to know what makes employees engaged in the first place. But as employee engagement is a two-way street, you also need to help them know you, and constantly keep reminding them why they became employees at your company in the first place.
