It may seem like an odd question. But many companies fail to treat employees as if they are genuinely trusted. And in return, many employees are unconvinced that their leaders are trustworthy.
This mutual disharmony can have serious ramifications for corporate culture, turnover of employees, and financial performance.
Making workplace trust a priority can help employees feel connected to their team and create an environment in which they feel comfortable sharing ideas and asking questions.
Honesty and transparency engender trust. Employees can feel more secure in their roles when you show appreciation through public recognition, empower them by demonstrating trust, and act promptly to rectify their concerns.
Building and maintaining employee trust should be a top priority for responsible managers. It makes employees feel valued and adds value to the business.
