According to a survey by Sodexo, companies that invest in the well-being of their team are up to 70% more profitable and 86% more productive. These numbers make the eyes of any entrepreneur shine.

So we created this post for you! Today we are going to teach you how to improve people management in your company. Keep reading and stay on top of the subject. Good reading!

1. Invest in new internal communication channels

Internal communication is an important element in HR management. When there is no dialogue, the number of errors and problems at work tends to grow exponentially.

To improve communication, it is important to start at the top. Your team managers are the main influencers in the work environment. Get all company leaders, including the CEO, to commit directly to the issue.

Also, look for new communication channels. The most common are intranet, e-mail, corporate social networks, mobile applications, and other specialized systems.

2. Develop and engage your company's leadership

It is impossible to create good people management without good leaders. This is because, however good the HR policy is, they are the ones who put it into practice.

Therefore, it is important to invest in the development of leadership skills. Apply training, invest in courses and stimulate the relationship between them and other company employees.

When leaders can conduct good management, they act as an example and gain greater control within the company. This positively impacts the final numbers that define the success of a business.

3. Create clearer and more consistent goals

Work goals work like a compass, directing the entire team of employees to seek the results desired by the company.

Unfortunately, many managers still don't know how to develop consistent goals. Often, they are created without coherence and, therefore, are not enough to stimulate employees.

To create a successful goal, keep in mind that it must be: objective; measurable; relevant and reachable.

Oh, and don't forget to set a period to reevaluate it regularly. This methodology is known internationally as SMART.

4. Provide feedback on an ongoing basis

Feedback is an exchange of information. Through it, an employee understands their strengths and weaknesses and reflects on how they can further improve their performance.

Failing to offer it is a big mistake. Without it, your team will not know what to do and can compromise the results of the entire company.

When used, this feature encourages improved performance. But remember: be careful with the way you choose to talk, especially when making negative comments. After all, your goal is to encourage employees and not to pressure them.

To give good feedback, it is important to set an appropriate time and place and to deal individually with employees. Also, try to balance the positives and negatives, avoid roundabouts and be very clear about the desired improvement.

5. Reward the team for the results achieved

In addition to everything that has already been mentioned, it is important to recognize and reward the team's work. To do this, balance financial and non-financial rewards.

The first are bonuses, profit sharing, commissions, travel, prizes in goods, etc. They are good ways to engage employees and increase their productivity.

Among the non-financial rewards, we can mention exclusive parking space, paid day off, employee photo of the month, public praise, etc.

By applying all these tips, it is possible to improve people management and achieve great results with the same team. The success of HR depends only on you!
