You may have read numerous articles and stories or books on the subject of what employers expect from their employees but little has been written regarding what employees expect from their employers. This piece tries to exploit some of the key things that employees expect from their employers. This article seeks to present those views as are they are in the current job market.

A motivated team can do wonders. Someone said that an army of motivated sheep led by a lion can win many battles but an army of demotivated lions cannot win any war leave alone a battle. Employees expect a motivation from their employers. Most employers mistake this with monetary things but motivation does not necessarily need to be in form of money. A smile, talking nicely and firmly and acknowledging whenever an employer does something good.

Setting of realistic goals. Employees work well with set goals and they will work better with goals that are realistic. Some employers set goals which deep within themselves know that they cannot achieve but expect their employees to achieve them whether it rains or it shines. It is good to set goals but setting realistic goals is better.

Acknowledging that your employee is a human being that he or she matters. Most employers see their employees as tools and machines, one that have been invested in and, therefore, should be used, reused and misused. It is true that employees are an investment where you as an employer has invested in them and that you expect them to give back to you more than what you give them so that you can make profits. That is good but please acknowledge that they are human beings who at some point make mistakes.

Having a balanced talk is key in making sure that your employees give you the best. This is, you are not too harsh and you are not too soft. Most employers have perfected the art of being extremely harsh like angry and wounded lions. Whenever such employers open their mouths to speak, they breathe fire, thunders and storms sending their employees succumbing for their safety within their skins. As an employer, it is good to be angry and annoyed sometimes but do not get annoyed and furious to the point of taking the annoyance to a personal level with your employee. If your employee has been good, say 99 percent and he does one mistake, say one percent, don’t dwell on the one percent as if the employee has committed murder and forget the 99 percent.

You want good results from your employees? Motivate them. Simple. Just motivate them and you will see how far and fast a motivated team can run.
