This podcast is the 8th in the series of Top Ten ways to Build Better Buisiness Abs. The core message of this program today is to treat your employees as a vital part of your business. They are the heart (and sould) of your company. They represent a powerful interface with the local community as well as your greater target market. 

One of the best investments any business can make is to spend the time, money and energy necessary to attract, train and retain excellent employees.

Do you have an overall system in place that measures and rewards employee productivity? Do you know what truly motivates your employees?

It is a good practice to have written job descriptions with perfmance requirements and a roadmap for continunal improvement. Keep your employees motivated through constant training. Use the internet for inexpensive on-line courses.

And always communicate. When people work without information regarding their environment it creates a sense of insecurity and less efficiency.

A well motivated, trained and appreciated workforce is another core essential in building a profitable and successful business.
