Knowing employees plays a crucial role in motivating
employees to deliver their level best. Knowing employees
helps managers to understand their needs and expec-
tations from the organisation.
Managers need to know whether their team members
are happy with their jobs or not? Do not make your
employees feel ignored or left out. Believe me; they
would hardly contribute towards the organisation. Unless
and until they feel themselves indispensable for the
organisation, they would never take things seriously. In
such cases, individuals attend office just to receive their
monthly pay checks and treat work as a mere source
Do you ever think of speaking ill of your family mem-
bers, friends or relatives? Absolutely NO. Then why
always criticize your BOSS? Why don t we feel like
coming to our office whereas we enjoy so much at
homes? Have you ever asked yourself?
Managers need to understand that employees need
to be appreciated for them to perform consistently. Let
them feel special. Problems arise when managers do
not acknowledge the hard work of employees. Remem-
ber; you are not paid for just sitting in your cabin and
passing on instructions to your team members.
There are managers who do not even know their
team members properly. Sit with your team members
on a regular basis to know them, evaluate their work
and provide correct feedbacks. As a manager, it is your
responsibility to guide your team members and help
them achieve their targets within the stipulated time
frame. Know which all team members are actually con-
tributing towards the organisation and who
all are just coming to have fun at work place?
Appreciate employees who perform extraor-
dinarily. Reward them suitably. Employees feel
happy and proud to be a part of the organ-
isation when their performances are noticed.
Knowing employees well leads to a healthy
work culture. When employees know each
other well, they seldom fight and criticise
Conflicts and misunderstandings not only
spoil the ambience in the workplace but also
increase the stress levels of individuals.
Employees feel frustrated and find it extremely
difficult to deliver results under such circum-
stances. Do not stop your employees from
talking to individuals representing other depart-
ments. What is the problem if people have
friends at the workplace? Everyone is mature
enough to understand that there are certain
things which are confidential and should not
Employees feel happy when managers con-
nect with them on a personal level. They feel
like coming to work daily, face challenges with
a smile and also constantly strive hard to take
their organisation to the top. Make your
employees feel responsible for the organisation.
Let them understand that their projects or
job responsibilities are just like their own
babies and they need to be sincere and take
good care of the same.
Managers need to know the names of all
their team members and understand where
all their team members are lacking and what
all initiatives would make them a better pro-
fessional. Knowing employees well leads to
better results and better productivity. When
managers understand their employees well
and vice a versa, there is hardly any problem
and organisations become a better place to
