Precious Metal: How to Treat Employees

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

How are you treating your employees?

"More than half of people who leave their jobs do so because of their relationship with their boss. Smart companies make certain their managers know how to balance being professional with being human. These are the bosses who celebrate an employee's success, empathize with those going through hard times, and challenge people, even when it hurts." 
Travis Bradberry

Today, there are more jobs than people to fill them. If you don't want to be left holding the bag, treat your employees like gold.

They ARE gold.

Top States to Find a Job in America in 2017

"The job market is complicated these days. Nationwide, unemployment has fallen to levels not seen since the turn of the millennium. In some states the rate is even lower. Yet more than 1.5 million Americans have been out of work for half a year or more, and skilled positions across the country are going unfilled. Even so, some states are deftly navigating it all, adding jobs and growing their economies. Among the 66 metrics in our America's Top States for Business study is year-over-year job growth, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are the top states for jobs for the 12 months ending in May 2017."
