The vibe of your office workplace really does matter. If your team are constantly having to drag their feet to work or if they are just not excited to start the day, then there could be a few reasons for this.

Communication

Hard work always needs to be acknowledged. If you are not engaging your team or if you are not challenging them then they will eventually get bored. They may also not try as hard as they could for your company. It’s also important that you show your appreciation, and that you recognise the work that they do put in for your business.

Teach

It’s important that you try and develop a driven learning environment. If you are not teaching your team how to be better, or if you are not helping them to progress to that next level, then they won’t see much of a future in your company. They may also find it difficult to see the point in coming to work every day because they feel as though their job is a dead-end, and this is the last thing that you need. If you want your team to feel good about coming to work every day then it is a good idea for you to look into an employee benefits scheme.

Collaborate

One of the defining aspects of any company is being able to work with their employees to achieve a positive result. It doesn’t matter how large or how small your team might be because it is so important that you collaborate on a range of projects.  As you expand, you also need to make sure that you stay connected with your team and that you don’t forget about the people who helped you to get to where you are today. If you are having a hard time getting your team to work with one another then there is a high chance that you are not providing them with the right tools. Try and make it easier for them, so that they can get their job done easier. They will appreciate it and they will also credit your company as a result.

Self-awareness

Your team need to have a good idea of their own self-awareness. They need to know their strengths and weaknesses. They also need to know how to map out a plan for improvement based on their own knowledge. If you do this, then you can empower them, and you can also give them the chance to progress as individuals.

Independence

Successful employees will always come to you and tell you what they did, rather than asking you what they should be doing. Your team should always feel as though they can make their own decisions rather than coming to you for help all of the time. If you can foster this kind of working environment, then your team will feel more confident and this will show in the work that they are able to do.
