Passion maybe the #1 priority of many people when looking for a job, but, when they are on it and it doesn’t pay enough, that’s when they start to question what they have been doing and start reconsidering things.
We cannot deny the fact that no matter how they love their career, as long as the price is not right, it would be difficult and they will always be pushed to the edge until they decide to quit.
As an owner, part of your responsibility is to retain your employees’ interest on their jobs. You can do this by making sure they will be paid well and enough. You should also consider giving rewards and compensation once in awhile for their extra efforts and hard work. By doing that, you can earn your workers’ loyalty and you can surely make them happy.
For the record, I don’t think there’s no one more productive and competitive than a happy employee. So, if you start noticing discomfort among your staff and you know it has something to do with their pay, might as well, start checking on how your payroll goes to know what you might be doing wrong.
Payroll isn’t just about the amount you pay but also the method on how you will send it to each of your employees. Aside from the traditional ways which is either cash or check, it’s better if you would be able to provide them other options so you would know what would be most convenient and most preferable mode for them. Not everyone can afford the time of going to the bank to encash their checks and not everyone can be comfortable bringing their money with them. Direct deposit can be one good alternative. All you have to do is to relay to them that there are other choices and help them access those. When they stop having problems on how they would be able to receive their salaries, you can start redirecting their focus on their work.
Access to Payroll Information is also vital for employees. Transparency on the side of the administrators is crucial for it builds their credibility which makes them earn the trust of their employees. Making them see the composition of the product of their hard work may also motivate them at some point. Not only that, you can also use this as basis in case there are disputes or conflicts that you need to settle. Having a transparent and clear reference can easily extinguish any doubts or misunderstandings.
Trust and loyalty will bring up a good working relationship between employees and employers. Through Payroll, you can maintain a healthy relation that will also lead to a productive working environment. Happy people are precious assets in a company. They radiate their energy and good aura to make the place warmer and lighter which is conducive for many great things. This is where good ideas will burst out and passion will ignite and burn even brighter.
