3 Ways to Communicate with Your Employees

Communicating with your employees regularly is essential to keep them engaged in the business. Communicating also helps you to understand what is working and what is not. Remember – your employees are the ones doing the day-to-day work of the business; they will see problems likely before you do and often have suggestions for resolving the problem. They are often closer to the customer and can bring you the customer’s perspective. Bottom line, communicating with your employees enables you to build better relationships with them.

Here are 3 simple ways to communicate on a daily basis with your employees:

  1. Each morning stop by the coffee machine and participate in conversations with employees. Get to know them personally. Ask about their evening the night before. Ask about their past or upcoming weekend. Ask how things are going.
  2. Spend a little time each day just walking through the office and checking in with employees.
  3. At least once a month, pick a department or business unit and attend their staff meeting to learn about their challenges.

Go ahead…get started first thing tomorrow morning! In just these 3 simple ways you can begin to develop relationships with your employees and improve communication.
