Three Reasons to Meet Regularly With Employees

Meetings With Employees

Schedule a MeetingMeeting regularly with each employee has many benefits for you, the employee, and your organization. These three are especially valuable:

You’ll deepen trust. You’ll understand each other better through frequent conversations that address your needs. Getting to know each other on a personal and professional level helps build a trusting relationship, which makes it easier to work together productively.

You’ll raise issues. Employees will know they’ll have a chance to talk about problems and ideas without interrupting you from your work. Encourage them to talk with you.

You’ll gather—and share—feedback. A regular meeting to share thoughts about performance will help both of you improve on the job.
