Empower Your Employees

With many jobs, you may see your employees or co-workers more often then you see your actual family. With this in mind, it's important that you do everything in your power as a manager to make for a positive work environment. Inspire your employees and make them feel empowered. Not sure how to go about this important task? Call Kmet Consulting for HR help. Keep reading for a few tips on how to empower your employees.

Empower Your Employees

Tip #1: Show you have trust in our employees.

Make for a positive environment by having loyal employees. A great way to promote employee loyalty is to show you trust them by taking a step back and allowing them to accomplish the goals you have set for them. There's no need to watch from over their shoulder, show your trust and just be there for them if or when they need your assistance.

Tip #2: Give credit where credit is due.

Recognize employees when they deserve it. If you have an employee who has gone above and beyond for you, say thank you. There are a number of ways to show them how thankful you are for their hard work, such as:

  • Treat your staff to a work lunch
  • Buy a thank you gift
  • Give them a raise
  • Give them more vacation time
  • Start a thank you board in the office and write a nice note for each employee who has gone above and beyond that states what they did and how much you appreciate it

Tip #3: Share your BIG plans for the company with your employees.

Employees may like to feel like they are part of your "grand design" for the company. Share your overall goals for the company and the big picture you have envisioned. If they feel they can or will have a part in making that dream a reality, they can feel empowered.

Tip #4: Get to know your employees.

Show an interest in your staff not only as employees but as people too. Make a point to ask how they are doing and develop a positive relationship with them. Show your employees how a good manager acts and set that example for them.

Tip #5: Delegate important tasks.

Good managers typically have to delegate tasks due to how busy they are. If you have to run out of the office for a bit, don't be afraid to let a staff member you trust, step in for you to run a staff meeting or handle an important client meeting.
