Small Business Leaders

There are no magic bullets when it comes to attracting and retaining a productive engaged manufacturing workforce. But there is some basic ‘blocking and tackling’ that small business leaders and managers should take into account.

Many workers and managers say that pay and benefits are motivating.  On the job, though, there is not enough money to make someone work hard or stay in a job if they are miserable.  It is said that they will move to a different company for a few more dollars.  Reality is that when they feel like they’re making a contribution where they are, they are more likely to stay. (Setting wages competitively and fairly from the start is an indicator of how management will treat people in the future – think about it.)

You know the saying, “People don’t leave companies or jobs, they leave managers.”

The culture of an organization begins at the top, with the Owner or CEO.  If managers feel their leader doesn’t value what they do, tries to squeeze them, keeps them uninformed, or is disrespectful, they are likely to treat their people the same way.
