Trust your best employees to contribute GREAT ideas.
It can be human nature to want to feel appreciated. If your employees have ideas on how to improve your company, hear them out and take them seriously. If you use one of their ideas, give them credit for it.

Develop your employees to reach their TRUE potential.
Start fresh from the beginning by having any potential employees identify their career goals to you. This allows you to see if their goals align with your company's structure. You can have a better idea of whether or not this person will be happy realistically at your company long term.

Allow your employees to reach NEW heights WITHIN your company.
Many employees, millennials especially, can tend to stick with a company longer if they feel there is a “ladder to climb.” In other words, employees can become bored or unmotivated if they feel stuck in the same position for too long, so create a way in which they can move up within your company. Keep them motivated by providing incentives such as yearly raises or more vacation time.

Let your employees be who they are as people.
You likely wouldn't have hired them in the first place, if you didn't think they were good people, so allow them to be open. By “open culture,” we mean to allow your employees to express their ideas openly and honestly and you should do the same in return. Allowing everyone to be themselves makes for a much more comfortable work environment.

Avoid over monitoring your employees and trust them to do the job you hired them to do correctly.
Micromanaging employees can lead to employee turnover quickly. If you feel the need to micromanage an employee, then that employee probably wasn't a great fit for your company in the first place. Coach your employees by giving them the authority they need in order to complete their job tasks successfully. Make yourself available to them if and when they have questions.
