Greetings to our kind-hearted people of Rivers State and welcome to another episode of RivEthics on Radio, our character-building weekend show. Please remember that in business, relationship is so golden that your network determines your net worth. This episode is titled “Managing Human Relationships in the Work Place.”.
Excellent management of human relations is of substantial value in any workplace. Human relations is the process of training employees, addressing their needs, fostering a workplace culture and resolving conflicts between different employees or between employees and management.
Human relations in the workplace is a major part of what makes a business work. Without a stable and inviting workplace culture, difficult challenges can arise both in the logistics of managing employees and in the business bottom line. Businesses with engaging workplaces and a well-trained workforce are more likely to retain and attract qualified employees, foster loyalty with customers and more quickly adapt to meet the needs of a changing marketplace.
The quality of workplace relations is critical to employee retention. Managers know that staff turnover is financially very costly for a business. Every new employee requires a substantial investment of time and energy in their recruitment and training.
Workplace relationships provide a source of employee motivation, which is important to maintaining productivity. Employees who are interested in their work and in the well-being of other employees tend to be more productive than those who are not. This productivity pays obvious financial dividends to the company, as it can get more done in less time with fewer costs. Building relationships, by both recognizing employees’ value to the company and a concern for their needs, often goes a long way in positioning the workforce for great achievements.
In the modern business environment, the employees’ creativity is often dependent on their ability to communicate with other employees and share ideas. Without quality workplace relationships, employees are less likely to be able to develop and share the solutions that a business needs to survive or thrive.
Let us listen to our guest speaker today as she expounds on the subject. She is Mrs. Evi Ifekwe, a human resource expert based here in Rivers State. Please enjoy the episode.
Great Rivers people, don’t forget to always let your manners speak for you.
God bless and keep you and your families and God bless Rivers State.
