Tips for Motivating Employees

There are some simple managerial tips and methods that will help you motivate your staff. Most of these tips can be easily be included in the daily office routine and will definitely help to motivate your employees.

Share Your Vision: An employer needs to be a good leader in order to keep his staff motivated. There is nothing more disheartening for an employee than the feeling of being out-of-place. If an employee does not feel that he/she belongs to the organization, then it is very likely that such employees will display exceptionally low levels of motivation. An employer should always share his vision for the company with the employees and inform them about the company’s long-term and short-term goals. Make the employees feel like they are a part of one coherent team.

Value Employee Feedback: Always encourage feedback from your employees about all the company decisions and new projects. Asking for feedback, makes the employees feel that their opinion is valued and will hence encourage them to contribute more. In case of failures or setbacks, take feedback from your employees and ask them why they feel things went wrong.

Regular Interaction: In case the team does not meet regularly to discuss the daily progress, there is no direction to the entire team. Even if there are no regular meetings, an employer should always interact with his employees to ensure that there is no disharmony in the team and that all the team members are working efficiently. Exchanging pleasant hi/hellos might also help to bridge the gap between the employers and employees and can motivate the staff to perform better.

Appraisals and Rewards: The most demotivating feeling for any employee is the one when he/she is not appreciated for the work. Regular appraisals are the acknowledgment for the hard work that an employee has put in. In addition to the appraisals, many employers also offer monetary rewards during festivals in order to motivate the employees. Corporate gifts can also be a great idea to motivate the employees. In addition to these things, even small remarks like "Good job!" or "Well done!" can boost the morale of an employee and thus motivate him/her to work harder.

Team Activities: There are several fun team building activities which are essentially a great way for an employer to facilitate team bonding. A small recreational trip to a holiday resort or a nearby beach can be a great way to motivate your employees. Team activities strengthen the bonds between a team and hence increase the overall motivation levels of the employees.

Re: Tips on Improving Employee Motivation??

Hello,

Motivation in the workplace is valuable in terms of both revenue and production. You can improve employee motivation quickly and easily by following these five steps:

1. Improve the Work Environment
Look for simple ways to make it more pleasant to come to work and to enjoy working at your facility. This can mean providing a clean, well-stocked break room with free coffee and snacks, or it could mean elevating the dress code (to make a more professional environment) or relaxing the dress code (to promote a more hip, enjoyable working environment). Consider the lighting, cubicle arrangements, parking, equipment and schedule. The physical environment can make a big difference in motivation in the workplace.

2. Assign Value to Work
It is important that your employees know why the work on which they are toiling for 40+ hours a week is of value. Thank your employees for doing work well and on time; explain how their work improves the company or makes a difference. Look for ways to integrate an employee’s desire for learning and growth into the job at hand. Fund training, and assign each employee to work that will be interesting and challenging for him or her. It is important to facilitate personal fulfillment from the task at hand whenever possible.

3. Celebrate a Job Well-Done
Everyone appreciates a pat on the back; for those devoting many hours to a task, kudos need to be given as often as possible, especially if the task has been tedious or difficult. This can be done in private employee reviews and in public opportunities, such as progress meetings or announcements. Take advantage of every opportunity to recognize hard work; this cannot be overdone.

4. Tie in Monetary Benefits or Perks to High Performance
Most employees work for one reason: to make money to pay the bills. Few people get to work solely for emotional benefit, so you’ll need to make sure monetary rewards go to your best employees. Make these bonuses, monetary rewards or perks accessible to all so everyone is motivated to work hard to make more money. Hard-working, efficient employees save the company money, so the monetary rewards should balance out in the end.

5. Solicit Input/Open Lines of Communication
It’s important to know if your employees feel challenged, bored, overwhelmed or satisfied. They also need to be able to communicate about frustrations with coworkers, salary or work assignments. Meet individually with your employees on a regular basis, and ask the important questions. Make sure you allow honest answers to be expressed, and let them know how you will actually respond to the concerns expressed. While you may not be able to accommodate every request, you can do your best to make the work experience a positive one by listening sincerely.

Thank you for sharing
keep sharing like this.

Re: Tips on Improving Employee Motivation??

Every person has different reasons for working. The reasons for working are varies from person to person. But we all work because we obtain something that we need from work. The something obtained from work impacts morale, employee motivation and the quality of life. To create positive employee motivation, treat employees as if they matter - because employees matter.
