Giving Your Employees the Benefit of the Doubt

When you’re an employer, there’s a lot you have to take into account every moment of every day just to be able to run your business. Bringing employees into the equation makes things even more complicated. How do you know you can trust an employee? Unless you have good reason not to, giving them the benefit of the doubt encourages positive behavior.

Trust is Important

Trust is an important facet to have between employer and employee. If you don’t have trust, you will find yourself being suspicious in a lot of situations that could easily be avoided. You also will spend a lot of time trying to figure out whether or not an employee is telling the truth, which is not a very efficient use of your time.

Wait Until You Have an Explanation

If there is a situation in which you feel as though you’ve been wronged, you should wait until your employee can give you an explanation. The reason for this is that they might be able to provide a satisfactory explanation that sets your perception straight and avoids discord in the company. Always ask for an explanation before you jump to conclusions.

You Will Be Less Stressed

It just feels better when you can trust your employees and give them the benefit of the doubt. You’ll be less stressed and more able to spend time doing what you do best – running your business.
