If the first post of the acronym series didn’t catch your attention, here’s a brief- the acronym we covered was CLOSE that stood for Connect, Learn, Object, Solve and End. In the HR industry where you begin each day fresh from the start, these acronyms help you ensure that you have not missed out on something. Make it a routine to double tick these easy to remember but highly useful parts of your job!
In this article, we’ll focus on SERIES! Intrigued? Well, without much ado, I present to you the acronym #2-
Smile- Whoever said, “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight” was probably flirting but it’s nevertheless true. A happy face makes for a happy day. So cheer up, what do you have to lose?
Enable- You might be the boss but that does not makes you superior. Well, technically it does but leave the mechanics behind and enable, support and promote your employees as much as you can. Not only will your team end up loving you but will also respect you and work efficiently.
Rapport- Build a great connexion with not just your subordinates but your seniors too. Be formal but break the ice. Give complete work reports on specified timelines and earn the much deserved trust.
Interest- You don’t want bored employees turning in sloppy assignments just for the sake of it. Not every project can be fascinating but you can employ different activities and challenges and set up rewards to bring the fire back in the game.
Engage- Keep your employees engaged in some task or other. Be it a fun activity, a project, an assignment or a workshop. Give them a reason to turn up to work every day. CAUTION- Do not overburden them or you might end up losing them all to vacations and leaves.
Support- If any of your employee asks for your opinion on any matter whatsoever or requires your help and expertise, humbly step forward. Earn favours, you never know when you might need their help!
Make it a habit to apply the SERIES in every day office life. Sit back and relax for you’re now doing a fine job sir.
