Experts admit that in order for your startup to become successful, it is necessary to cut extra costs such as an employee turnover. Moreover, employees are more productive and dedicated, if they love the place they work at. Managers and employers are the ones who can create the right environment for the right team and lead the company to success. Here are tips on how to create a great place to work.
First of all it is important to choose the first employees wisely. As a founder of a company, you will be the one who establishes the culture of the organization. With the time, when your business will grow and expand, you will not be working directly with your employees, setting the right example. However, the managers who were hired with the company’s beginning will set the culture in the team the most.
Many experts advise to look internally when it is time to promote. Of course it seems easier and more tempting to hire somebody from outside, who has more experience and who does not need much training. However, do not underestimate the promotion within the company. The chosen one will be highly motivated to outperform, showing amazing results.
Creating opportunities for friendships will boost the productivity of the team. It does not mean that employees have to gather outside the work, but in a way that each team member has couple of coworkers that they voluntary socialize with beyond the company walls. Instead of forcing the team to socialize, it is better to create an opportunity for employees to naturally cooperate.
When you select your team, do not only look at their skills, but also check if they culturally fit in the company. With some time friendships will develop, leading a company to prosperity.
