How to hold your employees accountable

  • Educate your employees.  Let them know the mission and vision of the organization and how their daily functions positively impact the company.  Once we know how we make a difference and can see a project from start to finish, we’re more likely to be invested in the process.
  • Ask the right people, the right questions.  Talk to employees are who actually doing the job functions about how they do they job and what struggles they might be having.
  • Remove any obstacles or barriers.  Ask employees what might be getting in their way from doing their jobs.
  • Communicate.  Let people know how you like to be communicated with and when you want to be updated on a project (weekly, monthly, when it’s completed)
