For those of you that run Companies.
Do you ever have meetings after work, say on a Friday night, with a few drinks and nibbles and tell the staff how things are going?.
Any good Boss should and even if it is the chance to have a bit of a "pep-talk", it's time well spent!.
Employees like being told that they are doing a good job and it keeps thier work rate up.
Plus, it can be a good chance to hear some of the employee's concerns too.
Personally, we do this at the PoCo where I work, every 3 weeks, on a Friday night and it never fails to bring up a few points from both sides.
No pressure to say anything though, but if you do, you won't get shot down in flames, like you could do during the working week!.
We're all trying to make this business more efficient and profitable, everyone's ideas help!.
