how to make your employees love you, and why you should volunteer by Alison Green on April 4, 2012 I always wonder if there are any managers out there who would say that their staff hates them. Probably not — and yet there are tons of bosses who are indeed despised, and they must have no idea. Unnerving if you’re a boss, no? Over at the Intuit QuickBase blog today, I talk about 12 ways to make your employees love you. This isn’t about bringing people food or giving them an unexpected day off (although those are nice things); this is about the stuff that really matters: clear expectations, keeping your word, not having dumb policies, and so on. You can read it here. And then, on a totally different topic, I have a post up at U.S. News & World Report today about how volunteering can help you in your job search. That one is here.
