As more and more workers are leaving jobs that fail to provide them with a sense of meaning, it is more important than ever for leaders to appropriately assess what employees need to feel connected and fulfilled in the workplace. Data shows that when leaders build interpersonal relationships with their employees, they demonstrate an overall human-centric approach to leadership that contributes to feelings of connection and engagement from their staff.
On this episode of the Survive & Thrive podcast, host Jennifer Ayres speaks on how cultivating the employer/employee relationship can give workers a higher sense of purpose and support the success of their organization. Personalizing the relationship between leaders and employees lets staff know they are valued and can be incredibly opportunistic for an organization. Jennifer discusses strategies that employers can practice to better connect with their team, improve retention, and give employees a sense of purpose to help their companies grow and thrive.
