I believe in order to have a strong organization you need good employees with excellent skills, great managers with management skills and a business that has a good product.

When you have happy employees and you reward your employees with incentives, they are going to work harder for you in turn your company profits. When employees are treated with respect, they tend to work harder and more productively. Along with good employees, comes managers. You have to have managers who are fair to the staff under them and want them to benefit. You have to make sure the managers have regularly scheduled meetings to keep the employees on track, complete regularly scheduled evaluations to promote the employees and have full respect for the staff under
