Many shop owners make conscious and sincere efforts to keep their internal customers happy or satisfied, yet their retention rates keep dropping. Pizza parties and scratch-offs might get employees happy, but to get engaged employees who feel appreciated and valued, managers and shop owners need to do a bit more than that.
In today’s episode, I welcome Don Rheem to explain how neuroscience and behavioral science can help shop owners and managers to create engaged internal customers, increase retention rates and productivity, and transform the workplace.
Don is an Author, Keynote and TEDx speaker, Culture Changer, and Founder and CEO of E3 Solutions. In his book, “Thrive by design,” Don analyzes internal customers’ performance from a brain-based perspective and offers tips and insights on increasing production and boosting engagement at a neurological level. Don was also a Technical Consultant to the Science, Technology, and Space Committee in the US House of Representatives and an Adviser to the Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
Throughout our conversation, Don explains the difference between having happy and engaged employees and why the latter should be every shop owner’s goal. We cover the reasons behind “the great resignation” or “the big quit” and how to avoid suffering from it by building solid teams. We also discuss how to prepare managers and team leaders to generate cohesion among their groups, the importance of measuring results, and much more.
