It’s nice to be important, but it’s
important to be nice: Currently reading ‘Fairness for All’ by Mark Price who was the former Managing Director of British retail store @waitrose. Anyone who manages people should give it a read - at the heart is the importance of treating people with care and respect. I recommend giving it a read! A couple of key takeaways from the book as follows:
Reward and recognition - Pay is important in any job, but linking it to recognition is a powerful motivator.
Information - An open, transparent culture ensures widespread understanding of objectives.
Empowerment - Once employees know what needs to be done, if you empower them they’ll make intelligent suggestions on the best way to do it.
Well-being - A happy, healthy workforce is better equipped to do business. •
Instilling pride - Pride in the workplace and its status in society adds to fulfilment.
Job satisfaction - A culture of trust and respect engages in a personal level and encourages a stronger bond. •
