Tulsa Glass Cleaning
I am starting to feel like this series of Articles is never going to end. I feel like we have been talking about hiring for your Tulsa glass cleaning company for several articles now. As a matter of fact, that’s exactly how long you been talking about this subject. I believe this is our 6 or 7 article on hiring employees and employee management. Fear not though, there are plenty more articles to come. There are just so many different rabbit trails we can go down that lead out from this subject directly. I feel like we could go on writing articles about this for the next weak if we wanted to. However, I will admit that I’m starting to get a little bit bored talking about it. Furthermore, I feel as though I might start dreaming about employee management tonight. Arguably though, it will most likely be a nightmare.
They are your employees, not your friends.
It is very important as the owner of a Tulsa glass cleaning company to keep in mind that your employees are just that. They are your employees. It’s not always a good idea to build friendships with these employees. If they ever do something wrong and the time comes to fire them, you might hesitate. You wouldn’t hesitate if you had built a friendship with him though. It’s for this reason I recommend not building friendships with your employees. You can still be nice to your employees, just don’t always hang out with them after work. Once you start building that friendship, the whole employee and employer relationship changes. You can no longer treat them like you would as a normal boss. Due to your friendship, you now have to consider their feelings. Ironically, it’s not that you have to consider their feelings. It just happens naturally because you’re friendly.
They are there for the paycheck.
It’s extremely important to always remember that your employees are only there to collect a paycheck. I can’t speak from personal experience on this matter. However, I have heard other Tulsa glass cleaning company owners speak about this matter. They claim that they have had guys work for them for years. The business owner thought he could trust the employee with anything. Then out of nowhere, something happens that tests that employs character. They meet a fork in the road. That employee and neither do the right thing and help the business, or they can choose to do the wrong thing. By choosing the wrong thing, they know full well that they are stabbing their employer in the back. Be that as it may, they do it anyways. The employer trusted them to do the right thing. They entrusted them with Independence make good decisions, and it didn’t work out.
Friendly atmosphere in your Tulsa glass cleaning business.
In conclusion, I don’t want to damper all of your fun ideas for the workplace. It’s still a good thing to make a friendly atmosphere in your work environment. You don’t want things to be hostile all the time. At the same time, you don’t want things to be awkward between you and your employees. There’s a big difference between being friendly and being friends. You can be friendly to just about anyone. You can walk past someone on the street and be friendly to them. That doesn’t mean you have to be their friend though. Being friendly simply means treating others how you would want to be treated. This is not difficult. It’s the Golden Rule. It’s about as basic as you can get when it comes to interacting with other people. All you have to do is treat your employees like you would want to be treated.
