Bad Employer Karma- Don’t Let It Happen To You

EATONTOWN, NJ (October 26, 2009) – When it comes to their staff, employers are in the driver seat right now. Employees will pretty much do anything within (and without) reason to keep their job and prove their dedication to the company. While business owners are justifiably focused most on their cash flow and revenue, they need to be cautious about taking advantage of their employee’s willingness to assist the company during the difficult economic climate. Snelling Staffing – The Wyckoff Group is urging employers to find the balance between pushing employees to their full potential and pushing their employees too far.“It’s not unreasonable to ask everyone to step up and help the company,” says Frank Wyckoff, President of Snelling Staffing – The Wyckoff Group. “However, when you couple the constant negative media coverage with consistent intense pressure from the boss, it takes a daunting blow to your employees’ attitudes.”
Wyckoff suggests that making the extra effort to remain positive, even during the most difficult of times, can really have a motivating effect on employees and inspire them to become more productive.
“It’s like that old cliché: ‘Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right.’ Give your employees the confidence that what they do makes a difference in your organization and you’ll see an effective worker,” says Wyckoff.
Wyckoff proposes that simple activities can boost morale without breaking the bank. He recently held a “Snelling Pep Rally” for his internal staff where he showed an inspirational video and held a fun trivia contest. Wyckoff relays the following feedback from an employee, “I just want to let you know that I thought the meeting was really fun and motivating. It lifted my spirits! It was a breath of fresh air…just what the team needed,” says Jennifer Kaminsky, a Staffing Manager for The Wyckoff Group.
Additionally, Wyckoff says that there are long-term consequences for burning your employees out. “Eventually the market will get to a point where employees are in the driver’s seat again. Bosses risk losing some great talent down the road because of harbored ill feelings from the present,” he adds.
Local businesses use Snelling Staffing to contract qualified people in a diverse range of positions, including Administrative, Clerical, Light Industrial, Accounting & Finance, Legal and Biopharmaceutical work. Businesses from almost every industry use Snelling to find talented and qualified employees for both temporary and career positions.
The Wyckoff Group consists of New Jersey offices in Eatontown, East Brunswick, Freehold and Lakewood as well as King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, Brunswick, Georgia, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Peoria, Illionois.
