Discussing the “bottom line” with employees?


Should I talk about how much money I want my business to make or how much money we are making with my employees? Im in the 12th year of operating my plant nursery business; just starting the second year full time and I have purposely not disccussed “how much money” with my employees. Ive used other ways to motivate and thank staff…like sharing good customer emails, setting work targets, commenting on quality work, lunches out..things like that. My rationale for not talking about money is that the money side of things is my responsibility and they don’t share in profits (or losses). Im wondering your thoughts on this Brooke? Would changing my approach create an even closer work environment , provide more transparency, more opportunity for staff to feel more invested?
