Quiet quitting, The Great Resignation, are an ongoing trend causing many businesses to struggle to keep talent engaged and motivated. Most are leaving because of their boss or their company culture. 82% of people feel unheard, undervalued, and misunderstood in the workplace. In your experience, what keeps employees happy? And how are you adapting to the current shift we see?
Lal Chand Khatri: In my experience, maintaining a happy and engaged team is absolutely paramount. A company’s success is intricately tied to its workforce, making the team its driving force. At iSEO Ranker, we’ve always held the belief that our team is not just a group of employees but invaluable assets.
To keep employees happy, it’s essential to create an environment where they feel heard, valued, and understood. First and foremost, open and effective communication is key. We encourage regular feedback sessions, both one-on-one and within teams, to ensure that everyone’s voice is not only heard but also taken into account.
We also prioritize a positive company culture. Our culture is built on respect, trust, and collaboration. We understand that a healthy work-life balance is vital for employee well-being, and we provide flexible working options and support for personal and professional development.
Moreover, recognizing and celebrating achievements is essential. We ensure that our team’s hard work and dedication are acknowledged and rewarded, creating a sense of fulfillment and motivation.
As for adapting to the current shift in the workforce landscape, we are actively evolving our policies and practices. We’re investing in leadership training to ensure our managers foster a supportive and inclusive atmosphere. We’re also exploring innovative ways to keep employees engaged, whether it’s through new project opportunities, continuous learning, or community-building initiatives.
In essence, our approach to employee happiness revolves around cultivating a workplace where every individual feels valued, heard, and part of something larger than themselves. We understand that their satisfaction is the bedrock of our company’s success and the driving force behind our ability to adapt and thrive in this dynamic employment landscape.
Online business keeps on surging higher than ever, B2B, B2C, online shopping, virtual meetings, remote work, Zoom medical consultations, what are your expectations for the year to come and how are you capitalizing on the tidal wave?

The Great Resignation and the changing dynamics of the workplace have taught us the significance of retaining and nurturing talent. To capitalize on the ongoing tidal wave, we will continue to prioritize our team’s well-being and satisfaction, as I firmly believe that they are our greatest assets.
In the digital realm, we’re prepared to meet the increasing demand for online services. We are enhancing our digital marketing strategies to remain at the forefront of the industry.

Business is all about overcoming obstacles and creating opportunities for growth. What do you see as THE real challenge right now?
Lal Chand Khatri: Through my extensive experience, I have learned that the world of business is all about conquering hurdles and identifying opportunities for growth. However, I believe that the most paramount challenge we face today is the rapidly-evolving digital landscape.
In the realm of digital marketing, keeping up with emerging technologies, evolving algorithms, and the dynamic preferences of consumers can be a daunting task. But I see this as a remarkable opportunity for us to thrive. By harnessing our team’s expertise and creativity, we can transform these challenges into catalysts for our company’s advancement.
Our team is my greatest asset, and I am confident that we have what it takes to not only navigate these challenges but also turn them into stepping stones for our growth and continued success.
In your experience, what tends to be the most underestimated part of running a company? Can you share an example?
Lal Chand Khatri: In my experience, one of the most underestimated but incredibly valuable aspects of running a company is the power of recognizing and celebrating achievements of the team, both big and small.
Let me share a positive example. At iSEO Ranker, we make it a point to celebrate our team’s successes regularly. Whether it’s hitting a monthly target, completing a challenging project, or achieving a personal milestone, we acknowledge these achievements with enthusiasm. This positive reinforcement not only boosts team morale but also fosters a culture of continuous improvement and motivation.
The result has been remarkable. Team members feel appreciated and valued, and they are more inspired to go the extra mile. This culture of celebration has led to increased productivity, stronger team cohesion, and a sense of pride in our work. It’s a simple yet powerful tool that often goes underestimated but can have a profound impact on a company’s success.
On a lighter note, if you had the ability to pick any business superpower, what would it be and how would you put it into practice?
Lal Chand Khatri: On a lighter note, if I could choose a business superpower, it would be the ability to foresee emerging trends and market shifts with uncanny accuracy. The interesting part is, at iSEO Ranker, we’re already capable of achieving this!
We invest significantly in innovation and R&D, ensuring that our services and solutions are consistently at the forefront of the digital marketing realm. Our proactive approach has made us trend spotters in the industry, enabling us to position ourselves as trailblazers.
We’re the first to recognize and capitalize on new opportunities, whether they’re emerging technologies or shifts in consumer behavior. It’s not a superpower, but rather a result of our dedication to staying ahead of the curve.
By leveraging our innate ability to foresee trends, we’ve already transformed iSEO Ranker into a trendsetter. We consistently provide our clients with insights and strategies that keep them at the forefront of their respective markets. It’s not just a superpower; it’s the driving force that sets us apart in the business world.
