What kind of employee would you like to have in your team - one that jumps to the chance to take on new opportunities and learn new skills, or the one that spends a lot of time surfing shopping sites and doing little to pass?
It is not a difficult call. It’s definitely the first one! But what is the difference between the two types of workers - the one who
travels the long distance all the time, and the one who is always stable?
Here is an in-depth look at the important importance of motivating employees in the workplace.
Why does Staff need to be encouraged?
To motivate employees to the strength, commitment, and enthusiasm that the employees bring to work daily. Motivated employees enjoy their jobs most of the time, are happy to complete their many tasks with all their might, and want to learn and grow in their roles. They are in their work for more than just pay. Motivated employees are a great asset to any business. They do their jobs, big and small, to do the best they can. They can encourage others in their groups to do the same. And if they are leaders and managers, they can help the whole team succeed by bringing focus and positive energy to others.
Benefits of Encouraged Staff -
Increasing staff commitment
When employees are encouraged to work, they will usually put more effort into the tasks assigned to them.
Improved employee satisfaction
Employee satisfaction is important for every company because this can lead to good company growth.
Ongoing staff development
Motivation can help an employee achieve his or her goals and can help personal development. Once an employee has met certain initial goals, we see a clear link between effort and results, which will further encourage them to continue at a higher level.
Improved staff performance
Employee efficiency is not based solely on skills or qualifications. For a company to achieve the highest good, the employee must have a good balance between the ability to do the job well and the determination to do the job. This balance can lead to increased productivity and improved dual efficiency.
How to do that?
Increasing staff motivation means looking at what motivates employees to do their best and creating an environment in which they can do that.
Provide employees with policies that they can control
Having a sense of independence and control greatly contributes to motivating employees. It makes sense - employees will not feel like there is a big point to do their best unless they feel like they have ownership of what they are doing and what they are doing. That way, they know they can make a difference and see the results when they succeed.
Strengthen manager’s communication is deadly
Strengthening the communication between employees and their direct managers has a profound effect on how employees feel motivated 95% of employees say that their relationship with their supervisor greatly affects how they feel about their work.
Providing effective and direct feedback is an important part of any manager's job, but few managers are successful in doing this.
See and reward employees
The compelling way to motivate any employee, from new levels of staff to senior executives, is straightforward - thank you. And don't say just once because it needs to be constant and honest for recognition and appreciation to be effective.
An easy way to increase staff motivation is to have good communication at work. Not just relying on emails but on making sure they talk to their employees in person even on a personal level, if possible.
Appreciate individual contributions
Managers should reassure their employees that their indie efforts and contribution play an important role in the company's goals and directives. Managers do not have to reward their employees with gifts every time they do a good job in a particular job. Sometimes a simple “Thank You” or a “Good Work” will suffice. These logical words show effort, and honesty, and encourage people to work harder.
A good working environment
Sometimes, employees lack motivation because their workplace does not have a good work environment. Managers may also post quoted quotes or a nice photo of the copier, coffee machine, or other visible area and receive a lot of traffic for others to see. Plants and animals also help to create a quiet working environment for your employees, why not add a few plants to the office.
Having a team full of highly motivated employees can make a huge difference in the success of the business.
But this is not a job you have to leave by chance or by your staff to manage it - you have a responsibility to create a work environment and the right motivations to motivate your employees. It may be a small job, but the rewards are worth it.
Therefore, to achieve a high level of productivity for employees and managers, one needs to promote a good work environment and great appreciation and acknowledgment of their hard work.
