Your business is not made up of good products. Your business is not made up of good services. No. Your business is made up of people. Your employees.
You may have good products, good services, and good clients, but if you do not take good care of your employer, your business is as good as dead.
Your employees are your first customers. They are the joint between your products and your clients. You can never mistreat them and expect the best out of them.
People don’t buy products or services. They buy people, they buy trust. If you treat your employees well, they will treat your clients well, and your clients will always come back.
99 percent of your employees do not need a lot. They just need a good working environment. They just want respect and above all, they just want to be paid on time.
No employee wants to work for free. They come to work because they want to earn a living. They are not your slaves. They have worked, they have met all the deliverables, pay them on time.
The moment you start feeling pain paying your employees, the moment you start seeing them as a burden, as ticks who are only there to suck money from you, then your business is down the path of no return.
Why have employees you can’t pay? Why not let them go? Why should people work for you, and you have no idea how they pay rent or feed their families? And you expect them to work like nothing is bothering them? Are you stupid?
If you want to make your business better, have great talents, and retain those great talents, be ready to sacrifice. Be ready to treat them well or your competitors will. Your business is not you, it is the people you have employed.
