After a business model, products and services, employees are a prime asset of an organisation. A satisfied and enthused workforce can be more productive and innovative in every possible way. The workforce can resolve queries at a personal level, increase productivity, create vivid innovations and bring in loyal customers.

A leader has to win employees' confidence so that it can entrust them important responsibilities later. He has to keep employees engaged by boosting their morale and offering them a say in the decision-making process. If the employees will be wholly engaged in the work, then they can create happy and satisfied clientele too. This will, in turn, increase the company's revenue.
