Communicate… and then communicate some more

Let employees grow themselves
This can mean anything from letting them lead a project to giving them opportunity to develop new skills. Everyone wants to grow in their position, and no one wants to stay static. By giving what they want you automatically create a nurturing work environment.
Make sure they know where they fit into the business
Everyone wants to know they’re valued. Educate employees on the business’ overall plans and goals, as well as where they fit in with those. Knowing why they come into work today will make doing so meaningful and appealing. Review your values and get the team involved. If you want your employees to live by your values, include them in their creation. Ask for feedback on employee benefits. You may think they are wonderful, but does everyone agree?
