Don’t Think That You Know Your Employee Feelings

Being the owner of your business don’t think that you are always empathetic. But, if you are having hard working employees and if he or she just cannot concentrate due to a tragic event, however, you may or may not affected by it, then assume that they are telling the truth.

All your employee needs to do is to call a toll-free number anytime within the 24 hours. This number allows them to connect the counselor. EAP programs are inexpensive. You do not need to be an expert when you think to help the employee during a crisis and if the crisis is personal, then the employee does not need to inform you. EAP is such an instance calls back and reports that one of your employees called, but they won't inform you about the problem, but let your employee get a befitting solution and a recovery from the trauma or setbacks.

Sticking to the Laws

If 50 or more than 50 employees are working under you, then you fall under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) that requires giving some time to those who need a medical aid or maybe to the one who is the caregiver for a family. Many of the states have a lower threshold and even some additional features. Check out the laws and rules that you have to abide. The law is actually a guideline that lets you fulfill the needs of the employees that are immediate and good.

Well, it is better to conclude with the tagline -  happy employees bring better profits”. So, if business is your concern, take care of your employees to amplify your business reputation.
