Most days, we all get up and go to work. Whether you work from home, from an office or from the road, you probably spend a good portion of your weekdays earning a living. With such a large part of your life spent contributing to your chosen profession, why not do something that makes you happy?
“When employees feel cared about as people, I’ve found they do their best work. They also stay longer, work harder, and produce more, which makes caring an amazing rate of increase. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
A recent article on Fast Company addressed the importance of creating a company culture where employees are happy. Profit and business growth are important, but without happy employees, motivation dips, and productivity drops.
The article highlights three steps to building a happy company culture:
- Make it personal
- Find a way to communicate your vision
- Put people first
We couldn’t agree more. At Financial Providence Group, the satisfaction of our agents is one of our top priorities.
Make it personal — We understand that in order for our agents to be passionate about their work, their leadership team has to be equally inspired. At FP Group, we take what we do very seriously. We strive to inspire our agents and lead by example.
Find a way to communicate your vision — From day one, we provide our agents with the training they need to understand the industry and gain expertise. Our leadership team backs each one of our agents 100%, and we’re not shy about communicating our support.
Put people first — Business isn’t everything. We appreciate the hard work our agents put in, but we also appreciate the people they are outside of work. We’ve found that incentives which allow our employees to enjoy their successes are integral in creating a happy workplace. Incentive trips are just one way we encourage our employees to relax, celebrate their accomplishments and understand that we appreciate everything they do.
