BEING AN EMPLOYER:
A company is primarily made up of its employees. It is wise to say that employees are the greatest resource in a company.

It goes without saying that an employer who employs numerous employees under him/her must possess leadership qualities in order to manage and lead the team in an efficient manner.

- PROMOTES WORK-LIFE BALANCE:
Another important quality of an employer is to promote work-life balance. Gone are the days when employees were treated as mere laborers.

Life is more important than any other thing.

So, it becomes necessary for an employer to promote work-life balance by not overloading them with targets and deadlines. Every employer must realize that an employee cannot be made to work as a slave just for the welfare of the company.

So, it is mandatory that every employer values his/her employees, promotes work-life balance as only that will increase their reputation among the employee market and also lead to increased work efficiency of its employees.
- OPEN TO NEW IDEAS AND FEEDBACK:

So, it is important that an employer listens to his /her employees providing some new creative and innovative ideas for the welfare of the company. Such practices must be encouraged and rewarded to motivate employees to contribute more to the development of the organization.
- REWARDS EMPLOYEES FOR THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
Last but not the least, an employee feels devoted and motivated to work for the company only when his/her works are rewarded. An employee who puts his /her heart and soul into his/her work must be rewarded and promoted to further encourage his/her work and service to the organization.
