3. Think About Their Needs
While it's not easy to show your appreciation to the hourly workers – they don't receive the same benefits as your full-time employees, there are other ways to think about their needs. We've mentioned how important properly managed shifts are to them, and while all this requires a bit more time on your part, it's worth the effort.
Creating a small budget that is dedicated for the best hourly worker is a good idea to start, everyone could definitely use more money in their lives. This can increase the competition that we've mentioned, and it will appear as an authentic effort from your side. If hourly workers complain, listen to them.
Just because they are temporary, doesn't mean that their complaints are unfounded. By paying attention to what they have to say, you will ensure that your fully-employed personnel, and your business, are also taken care of. 4. Ask for Opinions
Another important thing that most companies tend to do is completely forget about their hourly employees, not only their needs, but their input as well. Some of them might have some pretty good insight that could help the future of your company.
They will have the most unbiased view of your company, and this is why their ideas might just be the best ones. Ask them to participate in decision-making meetings, to give their own ideas – most of them will shy away from such an opportunity, but some will see this as a great way of staying there longer – which is exactly what you should be looking for as well.
By recognizing their potential in advance, you can quickly add valuable members to your team.
Treating your hourly-workers like fully-employed will only bring good results for your business and will do wonders for their motivation
. Small things can go a long way, especially if you are genuinely interested in helping them feel more comfortable working for you.
