I’ve written about it before, but it’s worth repeating: The most common reason that employees give for quitting their last job is that their boss didn't care about them.
Even though they may want to advance their careers, earn a living, support their families, and contribute to society – if an individual does not believe they can trust their manager to have their best interests at heart, they usually can’t keep doing the job.
Relationships Take Work
Relationships are important and they don’t happen by accident; you have to actually do things to create and maintain a strong relationship with others. But rest assured, your efforts will be rewarded in many ways!
Strong relationships at work:
Improve morale (and it’s a proven fact that happy people are more productive!).
Increase retention rates (why wouldn’t they want to come back to work the next day?).
Heighten the sense of teamwork (which in-turn increases cooperation and collaboration).
Grow productivity (and of course, that makes people happier! Wash, rinse, repeat).
