Better Than Anyone

Bob is still on vacation. This is a repost from April 2008.

you value your employees? I’d take a wager that you answered yes to
that question. But do you really? Do you take care of them better than
anybody else can? You might believe you do but if you can’t spell out how you do it, you may have a problem. Or, maybe you don’t believe you
need to take care of them better than anyone else can. If that’s the
case – read no further. You’re in the wrong line of work.

I’ve had business people tell me that they can easily replace
employees during rough economic times since the available pool is
larger. My guess is that with that kind of employee attitude they
really aren’t taking care of their current employees better than anyone
else. And, treating employees like commodities when times are rough
will come back to bite “you know where.” When things get better your
best people will leave.

Let your employees know they are valued and that you care about them
personally. If you aren’t a “people person” and aren’t capable of being
empathic then I’d suggest you get a partner or someone who is capable.
Listen to them. Ask them their advice. Have them put themselves in your
shoes. Let them know you heard them and give them feedback.

If you need one last reason to take care of your employees better –
remember this. If you do, odds are that your employees will be taking
care of your customers the same way – better than anyone else can.
