“Your most important assets are your loyal employees. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of you, and your clients.”

Consider this, your loyal employees are your best source of insight into the small problems, and small benefits, that accumulate into real business impacts. It is essential to keep this in mind. Creating and maintaining a loyalty relationship with your valued employees takes a deliberate effort that requires both your attention, and some very real skills.

Employees stay and contribute more when you;
– seek and appreciate their input
– treat them fairly and are honest with them
– provide them with opportunities to grow
– acknowledge their problems as your own

To summarize, planning and strategy are critical, but business happens in the everyday world, between your employees and your customers. Taking either of these two groups for granted is a short term mistake with long term implications.
