Do you follow through on promises made to staff?

WRITTEN BY STEVE MARR

Scripture teaches, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick" (Proverbs 13:12 NASB).

A business owner or manager may promise a future benefit, a higher salary, more vacation, an extra day off, or a promotion. If we fail to deliver what was promised or implied, staff morale will plummet. Even the delay of action will steal the joy of the ultimate reward promised. In the future, never promise nor imply what you cannot deliver in a timely manner. Follow through on all promises made to staff, and watch as improved morale serves customers well.

In the Word

Scripture teaches, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick" (Proverbs 13:12 NASB).
