It’s been two years since the global pandemic hit with a ferocity that changed the business landscape. Many wondered if returning to a physical workplace would ever return, and other businesses had to close down due to the restriction placed on many in the workforce. With restrictions gradually being lifted and life returning to a slight resemblance of normalcy, many businesses are opening their doors back up.
Finding employees in the retail sector has always been a challenge. Separating the wheat from the chaff in terms of finding the ideal team to represent your business has been even harder. Building the right franchise culture is necessary to keep your employees contributing their “a ” game and attracting enthusiastic new team members.
The Cornerstones of a Successful Franchise Culture
A positive working environment keeps nothing from the rank and file. While you don’t have to share every last detail with your employees, this does mean that they’re in the know regarding essential business decisions and the financial well-being of your business. This means knowing if things are looking bad and the ship is sinking. Knowing all the bad and the good, warts and all, allows for a highly functional work environment.
For many years, it was assumed that as long as you paid your employees a decent living wage and offered benefits, they would remain loyal no matter what the working environment was like. Times have changed, and treating your employees with the same courtesy and respect you would expect them to extend to you makes all the difference. If a workforce is treated well, they’ll be more willing to stay the course. A positive work environment yields positive results.
Opportunities for Growth
No one wants a position where they have little room for advancement and have nothing to look forward to in terms of moving ahead. With no goals to strive for, poor performance tends to be the end result of stagnation. If you have an environment where hard work is rewarded, and people have an opportunity to move up the ladder and earn better wages to sustain an elevated quality of life, hard work and determination are guaranteed.
