Advice to ManagementAdvice

read above about the cons and focus on improving each one of them so that employees don't feel that they are just a number with no value. Giving yourselves raises while telling the rest that they are lucky to have jobs is not good leadership and does nothing to instill loyalty and inspirational work.
