Are you risking the success of your business on unmotivated employees?

It is a well-known fact that often the biggest overhead of a medium-sized business is its staff. The cost of recruiting the right employees to start with can be huge. So, once you have the right staff how do you hold onto them?

Antoine De Saint-Exupery said “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”


Start by sharing your company vision and values so that your team all know what they are aiming for and how their role fits into the bigger picture. By engaging your staff in planning your business goals they will feel involved and included and more likely to take on extra responsibility.

How team building can reduce the risk of losing staff

Regular team working events (i.e. interactive sessions) can highlight development needs or areas of concern. They can also build up trust levels between your employees. By understanding each other’s preferred ways of working, communication will improve and the way they work together will be more effective. Resulting in a happy and motivated team that will help you achieve your business ambitions.
