Maintaining a strong employer-employee relationship can be the key to the ultimate success of an organization; the results are advantageous. If a strong relationship is in place, employees will be more productive, more efficient, create less conflict and will be more loyal. Taking this into consideration, is your company operating at its peak performance?

Trust is one of the essentials between an employer and his employees. An employer should trust his employee and vice versa. This trust factor actually helps in building a relation between both the parties. Once this trust factor is built then we say that the base of the relationship between the parties is set. Going forward trust helps to maintain the relationship and helps both the parties to understand each other well so that both can contribute to the development of the organization and personal development. It helps in maintaining the satisfaction level of both the parties which is very important for both the employer and employee as if any of the party is not satisfied the growth of the organization is not possible.

On top of knowing each other’s strengths, employer-employee relationships can drastically be improved when we know how to motivate someone. And what’s even more fundamental, is becoming conscious that what motivates you may not necessarily motivate the other person.

You might think you are encouraging him by posting a list of top 10 sales advisers in the office when you are actually discouraging him. His motivation is centered on being of service, mutual help and teamwork. As his employer, you need to motivate him with altruistic challenges…it may not be what fires you up, but it can help that employee shine.

It is also very important for an employee to understand that his employer is also a human being and at times he may also be low on motivation. There might be a lot of things going wrong which may bring down his morale. Hence it is the responsibility of employees to create an environment that helps in increasing the motivation level of his employer. Maybe all the employees can work for extra time, if any previous tasks are pending complete and submit them, and the best the employees can do is wear a smile on their face and work harder.

Strong employment relations create a pleasant atmosphere within the work environment; it increases the employee’s motivation and can also be increased through improved employee morale. Companies that have invested into employee relations programs have experienced increases in the productivity, and therefore the increased productivity leads to increases in profits for the business.

Creating the productive and pleasant work environment has a drastic effect on an employee’s loyalty to the business, it encourages a loyal workforce. Having such a workforce improves employee retention, in doing so the cost of recruitment, hiring and training is cut drastically. For most businesses the high cost of employee turnover outweighs the cost of the employee relations program that they have in place. Another benefit is that when the employee turnover is low it ensures that the employer has a trained and skilled set of employees.

Another advantage of good relationship between the employer and the employee is reduction of conflicts within the workplace. When a work environment is efficient and friendly the extent of conflict within the workplace is reduced. Less conflict results in the employees being able to concentrate on the tasks that they have at hand thus being more productive.
