If there is one thing we know about successful small to medium businesses, their staff are productive because they feel appreciated and not just a number. Nowadays, when it comes to business, the most common cause of a lack of productivity is employees feeling like they don’t matter.
Making a simple gesture to your team can really change the face of your business overnight.
