Don't Loosen The Leash Too Much On Your Employees

By Business Desk

Thursday, October 6, 2017.

It’s weird to think of your employees as individuals who you have control of, but you do. You decide how much they work, you decide what they get paid, and you determine whether they get to keep working for you. In many ways, while employed by you, you’ll be shaping their lives. Especially while they are in your office on the job. A lot of business owners hate how much control they have over the people who work for them. They want to be seen as their friend, their buddy, their colleague. But this is a slippery slope because if you’re not keeping employees under the thumb, it could have a catastrophic effect on your company.

Low Productivity

Guess what happens when employees feel that they’re not being made to work hard? They won’t and instead they’ll slack off to the point where productivity levels reach their lowest point. You’ll be lucky if you’re completing even one of the goals that you set out for your workers at the start of the day. This tends to happen when the boss wants to be the friend. Now, we’re not saying that you need to be the hammer to their nails, but you have to take charge. They need to know you are at the head of the company. They must respect you as a leader because if they don’t, you’re not going to get anything done. This respect isn’t something you get automatically, it’s earned. They have to see you making the tough decisions and then they will accept you ordering them around. As long as you have shown and proven that you deserve their loyalty.

Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

You have to be particularly careful of employees who are away from the office. They might be working from home, working on the road or out on a call. You will want to make sure that they are not wasting time during these activities. You could just trust them, but there will always be a few employees who use time away from the office as an excuse to slack off. It’s a particularly troublesome issue for businesses with workers out on jobs. That’s why you want to be able to monitor them. Remember, this might be about more than just keeping high levels of efficiency. If you’re working in construction, employees are going to be at the wheel of some expensive assets. You want to keep them safe and keep track with construction GPS tracking. That way, you will always know where your vehicles and your workers are.

Having employees working from home is a little different. A GPS isn’t going to do much good, even if you could get them to wear one. But you should be checking in on them occasionally, making sure they are keeping up with their goals. Otherwise, you might find at the end of the day that very little has been achieved.

Disruption In The Office

There is another issue that could arise from not keeping a check on your employee's when they are in the office. Workers might start to display negative forms of behavior such as bullying and offensive remarks. Think of your office bullpen as a classroom. Without a teacher in a classroom, all hell breaks loose. Now, to an extent you can trust your employees to act as professionals. But you shouldn’t give them the complete benefit of the doubt. They need to know there’s a presence in the office watching over how they act and what they do. Acts of bullying won’t just drive productivity down. It could also result in an expensive lawsuit that would cripple your company.

Viruses and Bugs

You might think that the worst thing that can happen if an employee is on Facebook is a little lost time. That’s not the case. The main danger of employees going wherever they want to online is not loss of time. It’s a security threat. Certain sites are more at risk to viruses and malware than others. Social media networks are some of the hot sites for the most vicious malware. If you don’t have the latest digital security, just accessing these sites could expose your business. You might be smart enough to know this, but are your employees aware? It might be worth blocking some of their computer privileges. Employees might complain about this at first, but you have to show them who’s boss. They need to know that your word is the law in the office.

Remember, though, there is a thin line between respect and fear. You need to keep employees in line without them feeling unhappy in their job. There is still room for a fun work environment even with rules and policies in place.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it. PSG fodboldtrøjer DanutaTuc nuova Maglia Barcellona FerneChap
