Pleasing your customers is a top priority for the best businesses. This is because keeping a customer happy is the secret to repeat business, referrals, and growth.
So why treat your employees any differently? They are the ones at the root of great service for your customers, and they should be treated with the same respect.
Here are four reasons why:
1) Employees help build your company brand from the inside
If you treat your workers well, they will be excited to share the news. Satisfied workers lead to more internal referrals, which leads to a strong company. Companies that hire referrals see benefits such as 50% faster onboarding, less productivity loss, and higher retention rates.
2) Employees create products and experiences for your customers
Your workers are the ones creating products or experiences for your customers. Imagine the service from a happy employee versus an unhappy employee: they will have more pride in their work and enthusiasm while working. Treat your staff with compassion and ensure that they are set up for success. It will pave the way for them to meet goals, deadlines, and specs to produce a great product and leave a lasting interaction with your most valued customers.
3) You want to retain your employees
Retention is a serious issue for employers. It’s a long and expensive process when there is a high turnover rate. If workers feel they are treated respectfully and fairly in the workplace, they will come to work each day ready to do their best. Just like customers, your workers don’t want to return to a place where they aren’t treated correctly.
4) Employees keep your company afloat
At the end of the day, if there aren’t stellar staff members, there won’t be many customers. Employees are at the root of every organization and are able to grow businesses if they are comfortable in their positions. Treating employees as if they are a valued and an important part of your organization will encourage company loyalty and high performance.
