In this day and age, people spend more and more time at work. It is not uncommon for people with full time jobs to work over eight hours a day, five days a week or even more. With this much time spent at the office, the company one works for becomes their home away from home. And everybody wants a strong, happy, stable home; a place where they can look forward to spending their time, to enjoying themselves, growing, developing, and contributing to something they deem worthwhile.
One should build their company the way they build their home. Pick the right people which lays the groundwork for a strong foundation. Give them room to flourish, making them stable. Lead them and respect them. A happy home is one where we want to spend a lot of time at, helping lead to employee retention, increasing engagement, and ensuring longevity.
