How to keep staff happy


How to keep staff happy

Knowing how to keep staff happy and motivated is key to a successful business. As an employer, it’s your responsibility to put the time and effort into making this happen. It’s even more important when the market is tough, because unhappy employees will walk. And it’ll cost you time and money to replace them.

Keeping staff happy means paying fairly, creating a trusting workplace environment and promoting a good work/life balance. But you also need to know the federal and state laws protecting employee’s rights. And the risks around employment.
