Creating a Wellness Program All Your Employees Enjoy

Maybe you only have five employees in your company. Maybe you have five hundred. Regardless, a wellness program can be surprisingly rewarding no matter how many employees you have.

A wellness program can improve productivity, enhance concentration, and improve the all-around wellbeing of your company and your employees. It shows your employees that you genuinely care about them and sets up your business for success.

Here are a few ideas that YEC members and I have implemented in our own business that you may find helpful in yours.

Creating A Loyal Online Fanbase

Social media dominates our lives like never before, especially in the wake of COVID-19. Any business that neglects to take advantage of this will be left behind. If you want to remain competitive and relevant, you have to learn not only how to use social media but also how to create a loyal fanbase.

A loyal fanbase doesn’t just establish you as an authority, but, if leveraged properly, it can bring you in more customers and revenue. Of course, to establish a loyal fanbase, you have to prove that you are worth being loyal too.

Here are a few ideas that YEC members and myself have come up with that will help you create a loyal online fanbase.

Training Your Business’s Future Leaders (From Home)

Where do you see your business ten years from now? Twenty? If you want to achieve the vision you have set for your company and yourself, you will need people that will help you achieve that vision. However, you can’t simply expect to spontaneously find qualified leaders who are ready and willing to help you; instead, you may have to accept that if you want to have qualified leaders, you will have to train them yourself.

Unfortunately, due to a tragic and unforeseeable global pandemic, you can no longer train future leaders in the traditional way. No longer can you simply walk onto the job and provide your leaders-in-training with the on hand counsel they need. Instead, you need to find new and innovative ways to train your future leaders.

By leveraging technology, however, you can achieve a new standard of training for your future leaders. Done right, you can provide your leaders-in-training with an unprecedented level of preparation. Read the article below to see expert tips and strategies on training your future leaders from home.

What’s Your Story?

People want to know who you are. Where do you come from? Why are you here? It doesn’t matter that your story isn’t sufficiently dramatic for the next best-selling novel. You simply need to show others that you are just as human as everybody else.

By sharing your story, you give your audience a chance to connect with you on a deeper, more meaningful level. By revealing your humanity, people will be more willing to trust and believe in you. If you are sincere and passionate about what you do, and you share that with others, people will even start to root for you. They will want to see you succeed.

If you haven’t taken the time to tell your audience who you are, now may be a good time to do so. In the article below, top YEC members share the best advice to keep in mind when sharing your story with your audience.

Unsatisfied? Try This.

That’s when it’s time to step back and reassess what’s really important. Perhaps it’s time to take a rest, spend more time with family. You have to remind yourself of what your purpose is.

You’re not the only who has gone through discouragement. Every business owner knowns what it’s like to go through hard times, but it’s the truly successful ones who rise above their situation and focus on what is truly important.

If you feel lost or uncertain, try reading the advice given by YEC members on how to counter discouragement. You’ll find tips and techniques they use to rise above their circumstances and focus on what truly matters.

The Secrets Behind Hiring the Best Recruits

Beyond skill and experience, other factors must be considered before deciding to take on a new employee. They might have an amazing resume, but if their motives don’t align with your company’s goals, it may be best to hire a less experienced, yet more passionate, employee.
