In any organisation, there will be days where employees or even managers are not feeling motivated
f you want to know how to motivate your employees and get positive employee engagement, you have to make them feel passionate to go to work every day and wanting to spend time with you and their colleagues.
Motivating your employees does not have to be a challenge anymore. Here are 12 fantastic ways you can use to motivate your employees:
Your employees spend a large amount of time of their lives working in the office. So try to make the office look as friendly and appealing as possible.
When you create a pleasant atmosphere where it is welcoming and comfortable, your employees will be more than eager to go to work every day.
Everyone wants to be recognised for something they have done; regardless if it was for a work or personal achievement. The acknowledgement of a job well done coming from upper management will mean more to an employee than you think. Always remember to give credit when credit is due.
There will be times when it takes more than just a pat on the back. Try giving simple incentives when rewarding engaged employees.
It does not have to be monetary rewards all the time; simple things like a week of having a personal parking spot at the office would be sufficient. Rewarding employees could also be a part of the company benefits.
Everyone communicates at work and it is probably the easiest thing you can do with your employee. Yet it can also be the most difficult. Spend a short period of time each day to have a word with your employees; discussing things from concerns to ideas.
This will not only make your employees happy, it will also provide you with much-needed insight on your business from your employees.
A little competition among the employees would not hurt. A competitive environment is a productive environment. Encourage employees to participate in competitions or challenges as it is healthy and may actually lead to increased camaraderie.
Friendly competition amongst teams helps with employee engagement and employee participation.
Try to remove any bureaucracy and hierarchy within the company and create an ‘openness’ to new ideas at any level and working together as a team keeps employees motivated.
Everyone is unique and unpredictable and each with individual desires and some with complicated ideas. Remember not to shunt away ideas or suggestions no matter how silly or meaningless they may sound.
No single strategy can ever hope to please all of your workers all at once. A tiny silly idea could be brainstormed into something brilliant sooner or later.
Some employees have a short attention span. Host a cupcake bake-off, plan a happy hour every Friday, have company lunches together in the office on alternate Wednesdays or allow a different person to run the weekly meetings to break up the dreariness.
