This is a very good back-to-basics article about keeping employees engaged. I thought these were basic to everyone until I worked at a few places outside of the Military and realized that it is not a prerequisite for business owners (even MBA holders) to necessarily think that this is good practice. Too many times, I have run into business owners who think that their employees are just “the help”. The more respect and engagement a person gets, the better they will do for the company, and the less they will cost the company (laziness equals loss of business, even if it can’t be directly quantified). Retention of a good employee is the most cost effective use of your business’s time and money (no matter how large or small).
