Why it’s important to get to know and look after your staff
Getting to know your staff can be done at the interview stage, assessment stage and on site at venues. It’s good to ask staff how they are, what they’ve been up to and if there’s anything new with them, Over time, you’ll get to know their strengths in a working environment, where they are best placed and what roles they are most suited to. It can also help you know areas that staff can improve on and how best to work towards targets.
If you know your staff, you’ll know when something is wrong, or they’re not be feeling 100% and they’ll confide in you. You can help them combat problems and adapt work environments to suit them and make them feel most comfortable.
Another benefit is staff loyalty. People are more likely to turn up to shifts on time, with a smile on their face and do their very best, if they are a good relationship with you as a person rather than the company. Staff who feel valued and listened to are more likely to do a good job. They’ll be more enthusiastic and feel like they’re doing a job with purpose rather than one small cog in a machine.
But most importantly, looking after staff is the right thing to do. In all the industries we operate in hours can be long and tasks can be challenging, it’s therefore a top priority to ensure staff are happy, comfortable and safe in these roles.
