How can I make my staff loyal to their work?

Answer

Staff will be loyal if they enjoy their work, feel part of a team or family, are well remunerated and can see a career path open to them.

It is important to have staff loyalty to grow a company successfully. If staff are not engaged, they tend to have lower productivity, and take more time off ill, and this can affect the bottom line, your profit figure.

If you can create an environment in your company where staff enjoy their work, and are motivated and committed, they will work better with customers, perform better, take less sick time, and stay with the company. This in turn gives the customers a better experience, makes the business more productive and so more profitable. It is also a much better experience for the staff themselves.

There are some factors that are likely to make staff feel engaged. Try to encourage a sense of community, family, of belonging to a team.

To do this you need policies that demonstrate you take care of employees, treating them as your family. Some of these policies are more expensive to provide than others, but treating staff with respect and kindness costs nothing but your time.

You can offer fair or even generous salaries, a pleasant working environment, paid time off for illness, medical costs, generous holidays, concern for their family, good catering facilities, staff discounts.
