first_imgIf you want to have a healthy relationship with your team, there’s a few words they would enjoy hearing you say. Employee satisfaction isn’t always based on a paycheck. Here are four things you can say to make your employees feel like they matter.Here’s the plan: From the minute someone starts working for you, they want to feel trusted. If new plans or changes are put in motion, your employees want to be informed about them as soon as possible. When you share new information with your employees, they’ll appreciate being looped in. Feeling “in the dark” can lead to feelings of frustration and confusion.Help me out: No one can do everything on their own. One great way to gain respect from an employee is to ask them for help. Just because you’re the boss, doesn’t mean that you don’t need assistance from time to time. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness. In fact, by reaching out to an employee with a specialized skillset, you’ll appear wise and intelligent.Thank you: It may seem too easy, but saying thanks every now and then really is the ticket to making your employees feel needed. When you let your staff know that you appreciate their help, they’ll feel that you understand the value that they bring to the company. Be specific so they know that you’ve noticed all of their hard work.Let’s talk about your future: Not only do your employees want to feel valued in their current position, but they want to feel like they have a future at your company. If you have long-term plans for your best employees, talk to them about it. When you have an awesome staff in place, you’ll want to keep them around for the long haul. 138SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
