Tips to Managing Employees

You manage your most valuable assets: Your Employees. IDS takes care of the rest. At IDS we take pride in managing inventory, tools, technology, textiles and medications, but our main concern is people. We help businesses and organizations save time, money and energy. This allows more opportunities for company leaders to invest in and support their people. Companies thrive where there is open communication and trust between bosses and their employees. In this blog we will discuss some helpful thoughts from a Thriving Small Business article about characteristics of good bosses.

Communicating a clear vision to your employees is important to any business leader. Understanding the why behind responsibilities help workers do a better job with their tasks and feel like a more important part of the organization. Why does it matter? Where are we going? Answers to these questions are helpful for bosses to discuss with employees.

Setting clear expectations and providing consistent feedback and coaching are also qualities of good bosses. There’s a difference between a coach and a referee. A referee just calls out violations with no relationship or feedback for the players. A good coach on the other hand shows more interest in the players’ well being and provides positive encouragement and constructive criticism. Good bosses give their employees space to do their job but also show the value of their employees with consistent feedback so employees can grow in their line of work. Rewarding good performance is important as well. Noticing a job well done will make a worker feel valued, and help to build a positive culture in your organization.

Your employees are your most valuable assets. Make sure they know that. People that feel appreciated will perform better and their positive attitude will rub off onto their coworkers. IDS has solutions and applications to make sure supply and inventory management does not get in the way of a boss’s most important job.
