The Importance of Having Employees You Trust

Posted by Mitzi Branvold | Thursday, September 10, 2020

There are a lot of things to consider when running your business, and it can be a little overwhelming.  Sometimes it feels like all the work falls on you, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  One of the most important things you can do as a business owner is to employ people you trust.  Why?  Here are two big reasons.

It’s great for your employees.

Your employees know right away if you don’t trust them, and it will most definitely show in their work.  Productivity will slow, they may see you as a micro-manager, and they will lack trust in you as their employer. 

On the other hand, if they know that you trust them, they will automatically want to prove that they are in fact trustworthy.  They will work harder, put more faith in you as their leader, and will be motivated to do what’s best for the company.  

People want to feel that they are valued, appreciated, and trusted.  If they are, they will do whatever they can to prove that they are worthy of that trust.  Your employees will be much happier, and your company will be better for it.

It’s great for you.

It’s hard carrying the weight of a business owner/manager.  It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, bogged down, and become very disillusioned with why you wanted this position in the first place.

When you hire and train employees you can trust, it will take a lot of the weight off of you.  You can feel comfortable delegating work to the people you hired to do it.  You can know that they have your back, and want what’s best for the company.  You can focus on the parts of the business you are best at, and allow them to be fulfilled with the work they are the best at.

It is refreshing to have people you trust working with you, not just for you, for the benefit of the company.

Ultimately, not having trust in your employees can be very damaging to your business. 

The importance of trusting your employees is so big, make sure you do what you need to for your company to be in that place.
