One of things that struck me the most from the article is really the significance of a good employer to have productive employees. Staff morale is the job satisfaction of the employees within a workplace.
And satisfaction isn’t just about the salary that they are getting from the company but also about the trust, care, and the relationship between the boss and his employees. As the article says, “If employees feel that their former colleagues have been treated with dignity and respect, they’re more likely to stay and promote the company to potential recruits”. In order for an organization to be successful, a good employer/leader is important because it is the leader that sets the standards. It is the leader whom the employees work for. Great leaders instill a sense of meaning and belonging in their followers by putting the imprint of who they are and what they stand for on their people. For great leaders, leadership isn’t just professional; it’s personal. The things the employer sees to his employees are only the things he gives to them. As some saying says, “What you sow is what you reap”. Transitions are critical to the company, especially to the employees because they are the ones working. That’s why if there’s a relationship between the boss and his employees, it would be a natural thing for the boss to help and to orient them, as the article says, to the changes made. In order for a company to be successful, the whole team should work as one. A success made by one person will only be a temporary success in the long-run. And we don’t want that kind of success. We want a success that is constant. And to be honest, the foundation to this kind of success is the relationship between the company, which is represented by the employer, and its employees. If the employees think that the company is worthy of their best, then excellence would not be a command to them. It would just be their genuine response to the company.
