Motivation in the Workplace

What does it take to develop a talented team of devoted employees?

Motivation in the WorkplaceIt takes incentive; a reason to do a job well. We’re not just talking about competitive compensation, we’re talking about the intangibles that get us up every the morning and out the door to accomplish our goals.

Motivation is the fuel for action and productivity. Very often, it’s what separates exemplary employees from underperforming ones. Successful businesses know that it’s in their best interest to provide their employees with the fuel they need to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

So what does this mean in practice?

It might mean empowering employees with training programs that allow them to feel like they’re able to make valuable contributions to projects. It might mean offering flexible hours that make it easier for employees to balance their personal and professional lives. It might mean rewarding employees with a bonus on their paychecks or floating holiday after meeting a difficult sales quota.

There are all kinds of ways to motivate employees, and it’s up to your management team to determine how best to incentivize good work. In particular, your human resources department should always keep their collective finger on the pulse of your workplace to gauge morale and enact practices and policies that foster motivation among your staff.
