There’s many rewards to be reaped from running a company. For instance, as the boss you get to decide on the kind of company culture that you want to shape.
Great employers and leaders usually take pride in creating a positive and nurturing environment for their employees – one where both employer and employees grow and mature together and benefit from one another as the company grows.

Here are 4 ways to do just that, and these methods have worked very well for myself and my staff.
