Improving employee motivation may be one of the most effective things you can do to improve productivity in the workplace. Here are our top tips for getting the motivation ball rolling:
1. Offer career progression: If your employees feel that they have a future with your company, then they will be motivated to do a good job. If you are a small business that does not have space for promotions, then you can demonstrate the value of having various skills and responsibilities on resumes.
2. Recognise good work: Rewarding and recognising good work is a sure-fire way to improve motivation. Employees who feel appreciated will want to continue to demonstrate their commitment and capabilities.
3. Compensate fairly: You should always aim to offer employees remuneration packages that are reflective of their responsibilities. If you are not in a position to offer more money, you can always think about non-cash perks. For example, more flexible working hours.
