It shouldn’t surprise you that there are many employees who don’t know the owner of the company that employs them. Or should I say, the owner doesn’t know them. Perhaps you’ve worked for one of those companies or are currently employed by them and may have been there for years.
This is a sad, but very true statement...I should know; I’ve been there, too! (It’s what drives me today!)
Too often in this hierarchy, you aren’t recognized as an individual person who plays an important role in the bigger picture of the company’s vision; instead you are cast away as another “cog-in-the-wheel”…You have no voice and over time, your years of hard work, dedication, and loyalty virtually go unrecognized snowballing into greater frustration, dissatisfaction, indifference, and ultimately poor job performance until you are fired or quit.
Why does this happen?...In two words…Poor leadership!
Lack of leadership or the way employees are treated (by leadership) is a main reason why employees leave a company.
You can try to work backwards exhausting all the possible issues you may be having that are out of your control…such as receiving a bad shipment, a machine in manufacturing constantly breaking down and delaying production, absent employees, etc.,…
However, if you haven’t communicated directly either to your employees or your leadership team how appreciated and valued they are on a somewhat regular basis, then you have treated them as a number.
Numbers don’t produce…happy people do!
Hiring a local commercial janitorial cleaning company that personally hires, trains, regularly communicates with, and appreciates its employees will go a long way in consistently making sure your building is taken care of and looking the best it can.
