Human Resources and Respect at Work
Employees are More Important Than Small Business Realize
Respect at work is key to a successful work environment. Without respect you will endure negativity and high turn over rates. Not many people will commit to a job based in a hostile environment. High turn over rates, essentially, waste valuable time and money. Training new employees and the learning curve can cost your business clients. First impressions are everything and if you have new employees dealing with clients regularly, your clients begin to wonder why. Misinformation from a new employee is not your only worry. You must pay people to train your new employees. When employees are training, payroll dollars are not producing sales. This very quickly becomes a financial burden on a growing company.
The Whole World is Watching the Inner Workings of Your Business
In today's world, sites like glassdoor.com, will also hamper your ability to find qualified and capable employees. Sites such as these allow employees to post reviews on companies and if they are good companies to work for. The reviews are anonymous and rate everything from how hard it is to get an interview, the interview process, workplace environment, to benefits and pay. The internet assists not only the consumer, but also workers seeking employment. As an employer in today's market, the actions of you and your management are held under a microscope. You must lead by example and demand your staff show respect to your employees. You cannot accept anything less.
Reputation, In Business There is Nothing More Important
Your reputation is your biggest asset in business and remember, employees are not the only people who can read these reviews. Potential and current clients will have access to reviews for your company as well.

One way to get a lot of pressure off you as an entrepreneur is to delegate work. But in order to delegate, you have to trust your employees. This doesn't just mean trusting them with money or trusting them to be honest. It also means trusting them to do the job right.
It might seem like a cliché to say that you have to change with the times but it is nonetheless true. Many organizations are set up in a certain way and continue to function in that way 10 or even 20 years later. But the fact is that the things that people valued 10 or 20 years ago are different from the things that people value now.
