It’s no secret – treat people with kindness and it’ll make both parties feel good. By applying this to the workplace, and by treating your employees with kindness, as an employer, you’ll also feel a benefit.

When an employee knows their company cares about them, they start to care about their company. If you get your employees to a stage where they genuinely care about the company and its successes, they will work harder.
Stronger Customer Relationships
Unhappy employees = unhappy customers. Therefore, it’s important to keep your employees positive and remind them of their value which in turn will increase the level of customer satisfaction.
Less Stress = Fewer Sick Days
This one’s pretty self-explanatory, by treating your employees well as a consequence you’ll be helping to reduce workplace stress, which in turn will improve an employee’s health meaning better job satisfaction as well as less sick days.
