How to Improve Employee Employer Relationships. The relationship between an employer and its employees is an important factor in the company's success. Employers will treat their employees with respect and visa versa if they all want to succeed and achieve goals. Some companies forget to focus on employee retention and appreciation, and then they lose productivity. Find out how you can improve employer and employee relationships and keep your team motivated for the long haul.

Step 1

Motivate employees by giving them incentives within the workplace. Treat all of your employees equally and give them all the chance to win a free trip, a free dinner or tickets to the next theatre production. Reward your employees for their improved hard work.

Step 2

Spend time with your employees. Many bosses and owners forget the 'little people' that make it all happen. Sit down and talk with each one of your employees when you have time and ask if they are happy with their jobs and what improvements they think the company should make.

Step 3

Plan a team building event and ask all your employees to attend including upper, middle and lower management. Get everyone together as a team and allow them to undergo various team building and trust creating activities.

Step 4

Invite all of your staff and managers to an event or a BBQ in your back yard. If you are an owner or the CEO of the company, then what better way to warm up to your employees then homemade BBQ chicken!

Step 5

Ask your managers to work closely with their teams and to support any issues that come up, or mistakes that might occur. Get everyone working together on finding a solution that everyone agrees on. If you have to, create a problem and ask everyone to work on it to find the answer.
