Love. This may sound touchy-feely, but love simply means focused concern that is exclusively for that person’s good. Show your employees you care about them and their futures.
Growth. No one wants to be exactly where they are forever. Create a culture that allows your people to grow and expand.
Contribution. To feel fulfilled, employees must know that they are contributing to the whole. Emphasize the ways that their work matters to the organization.
Meaning. We are meaning-seeking creatures. Share a vision that demonstrates that all of your employees are engaged in a larger purpose.
