“Train people well enough so they can leave… but treat them well enough so they don’t want to.”
Words of wisdom indeed. Employees are the most valuable resource in a successful business.
As your business grows and enjoys success, ask yourself (and answer truly!!)…
“Am I doing all I can to empower my assets (people) to develop and shine?”
I have seen many employers take loyal employees for granted. They assume they will never leave. This is very DANGEROUS ground to tread. Employees need to feel appreciated, valued and respected. When you lose a valued team member it creates an unhealthy atmosphere amongst those who remain.
Good people are your competitive advantage.
Invest in them!
