“Many people make fun of me when I spend money with my feet to pay for taxis” – Ajaiba Yasin. Her name is Ajaiba Yasin. Born in Silte Zone, after 4 years she grew up in Addis Ababa. When staff is managed well, they are more productive. The benefits of increased employee productivity are myriad. However, good management isn’t the only way to achieve employee productivity. You can also achieve it by offering your employees a lot of benefits. Jobs with more benefits are a lot more desirable. In addition to helping you retain and improve the productivity of your staff, offering more benefits will also make it a lot easier for you to attract qualified and experienced candidates when you post job listings. The quality of your workforce is something that you always need to be improving and working on. A positive work environment is essential. If your company’s managers aren’t polite, or friendly, and don’t do their jobs well, then it won’t be something that’s easily achieved. Since your employees will deal directly with their line manager, their manager has a lot of power over them, and therefore, can either make their lives positive or negative. If you hire good managers (and train the managers that you have already hired to be better at their jobs) then you will find it a lot easier to cultivate and create a positive work environment. A positive work environment, like good management, is strongly linked with staff retention and satisfaction.
