Entrepreneurs out there must have encountered situations where employees were given short notice to quit. No storm, no wind suddenly letter up front. Not to mention that, each had a red face. Look at that, don’t say it, keep blaming that person, this person, and keep pointing fingers here and there. Right?
In an organization, of course, there are bosses and employees, bosses and teams and the concept of bilateral relations between these two parties is really what determines the employer-employee relationship.
The most important thing in an organization is to start with a leader. The chief is like the ship’s captain, who will steer the ship and his crew to the same destination and face the turbulence and the waves. The employer is the chairman. Each team in a department has its own leader. Each of those staff is also a leader.
For an employer they need to know the 5 essential keys to building a good employer-employee relationship:
Of course in the office or in any company, the chairman’s credibility is measured by the results of the work done by himself and the team. Occasionally we see some employers or leaders who say ‘slack’ or arrogant with subordinates. There are leaders who are only good at directing, and good at ordering and not being the best role models. There are some employers / leaders who want to be honored by the team, they use ‘fear’ sentiment and fear and fierce feelings to show respect for their employees. Unfortunately, it is the same mentality that causes the workers to disrespect their boss and even to pretend to respect their boss. Over time people will dislike and incline to hate and that is the cause of the strained relationship between workers and their heads.
- Knowledge (Science)
This knowledge is very important for every leader in gaining the honor and confidence of our workers. That’s right! Employers should be hiring smarter workers so that they can help with day-to-day tasks and tasks. However, if the staff is smarter than the employer, it should not be that the employer is being clever, and that the staff wants to be proud. Learn and complement each other to maintain good relationships with each other.
There may be leaders who are not proficient in any field, but employers should make sure they have zero knowledge. At least they can master the skills of C.M.D. (Control, Manage, Decide); controlling, managing and making decisions is enough to prove that they are qualified to be leaders.
Usually people say when we sit in this high place we forget, we don’t know how to look. The chief characteristic of many people is that they are humble. In the concept of work, what is really needed is the comfort of both the workplace and the people at work, right? But if one of our leaders is too ‘bossy’ or does not accept other people’s opinions, then many will feel uncomfortable. In the concept of an organization, attitude is very important.
Employers who have a good relationship with employees often foster a good attitude in the organization. Together, they cultivate a culture of values and good relationships between employers and employees.
Fragile communication is a major cause of tension in the relationship between workers and employers. Some employers are not good at communicating with employees. They are incapable of giving instructions, and they are unable to control their emotions and cause communication to go down.
The main mistake of employers is that when they appoint employees, they consider that they are always good at doing all the work. The employer does not provide information, does not provide adequate training and does not guide the staff. How can they do a job without proper guidance? Right?
Employers also fail to convey the company’s mission and vision to the organization until employees are unsure of the direction of the organization and what tasks they need to do to help employers achieve their business goals.
Most employees can quit their jobs because they feel that their welfare is not being taken care of by their employer. For example, their workplace needs and benefits should be withdrawn or restricted. Undoubtedly, many workers come to work with you because they believe you can afford and can pay well and pay a fair price. And, if this is not handled properly, the existing trust may be lost.
