Managing Employees Effectively

As business owners, we understand that employees can make or break your business. They are the individuals that will either help you succeed or pull you down.

Managing employees effectively and efficiently is essential for the health of your business and we know that this is not always the easiest task. This includes recruitment, staff performance measurement and monitoring, interaction and reward. 

Let’s break this down:


Effective employee management starts with recruiting the right people. Aside from making sure that the person you hire is fit for the job, you must also take into consideration the qualities that a candidate must possess which show they can be managed easily.  This includes them being motivated honest, reliable, a good team player and willing to learn.  It is much easier to train someone in new skills and actions than to change their attitude.

 The above qualities indicate that the candidate will be a good addition to your team. Aside from this, making sure that your recruitment process is thorough will help you to avoid future employee issues.

Staff Performance Measurement and Monitoring

Unsurprisingly, employees do not like to feel like they are being closely monitored. This makes them feel like they are not doing well enough. However, staff performance measurement is one of the best ways to assure that you are managing your employees effectively.

You should set goals and KPI’s that your employees must meet monthly or quarterly. This way, you don’t have to constantly check on them and pick on every little thing that they do. The goals and KPI’s that you will set will already provide feedback and a review if your employee is doing their job. 


Interaction and connection with your employees is a great way to make sure that they are doing well and are enjoying working in your company. But how can you best do this?

You should promote open communication by encouraging your employees to share ideas, opinions, and even complaints. By doing this, employees will be comfortable to share what they want to share and feel confident that they are being heard and are a valued part of your company.

You can do this by creating different activities that will encourage them to speak out. You can also entertain any complaints that they might have by telling them that they can come to you and speak to you. By doing this, you can avoid employees sharing their thoughts with other employees that can lead to tension and bigger problems. 


Everybody loves to be rewarded or even just recognized for their great work and efforts. A small bonus, prize or just simply recognizing your employees’ outstanding work.  By doing any of these, your employee will feel good about themselves, be more confident and will strive to meet stretching targets. These will also encourage other employees to do better and perform better.

There are other techniques to manage your employees effectively, but these are a good place to start.
