Giving your workers more autonomy is truly a win-win solution. It allows you to entrust and delegate, while your workers feel inspired, energized, and part of a real team. Empowered employees are happy employees, and happiness is good for business.

Your First 5 Minutes With a New Hire

Your First 5 Minutes With a New Hire | Small Business loans | Scoop.it

OK the following is likely to take more than five minutes no matter what kind of company you run, but what's important is that you cover it right from the start and that the message is clear to new employees and stays with them.

1. Explain expectations. The future of your company rests in the hands of each hire you make--and you often expect new hires to be both willing and able to deliver on an array of duties to make your business grow. While most new recruits are just as excited for the opportunity to demonstrate their many talents, it's crucial to communicate your expectations to the new recruit in no uncertain terms, so he knows what is required of him.

Fire 'Em Up! 5 Simple Steps to Inspire Your Employees

Fire 'Em Up! 5 Simple Steps to Inspire Your Employees | Small Business loans | Scoop.it

Here's a simple truth: really inspired employees get a lot more done for your business and for your customers than employees who don't really care about the job they do. Uninspired employees don't necessarily telegraph the full extent of their disengagement, but that doesn't mean they don't pose a huge problem for American businesses today.

Hard Work Isn't Enough: Make Yourself a Brand, and Promote it.

Hard Work Isn't Enough: Make Yourself a Brand, and Promote it. | Small Business loans | Scoop.it

In the current competitive job climate, hard work alone doesn't always get noticed, say career experts. Good employees are getting passed up for new opportunities because companies may not be aware of their full capabilities. That's where branding can be used to promote your value to your busy bosses, peers and anybody else that can help you from inside and outside the company. Through a coordinated networking, social-media and blogging effort, you can become the go-to specialist in your field.

As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify

As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify | Small Business loans | Scoop.it

“Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for "smart simplicity." (Rule One: Understand what your colleagues actually do.)”

(From the article): Happiness is a loaded word in our culture, and in our workplace cultures. It’s important to keep in mind that we all have our own personal definition of happiness. But I firmly believe that a fulfilling career is a direct result of doing work that matters – that engages us mind, heart, and soul. Leaders can’t force employees into the zone, but they can certainly facilitate and nurture the process and make this more of a reality by making decisions that keep this in mind. And for employees – it’s a satisfying challenge if you decide to make it matter.
