Every good manager wants to keep his or her employees motivated. But motivation can be a complicated topic to tackle because all humans are unique, so what works for one employee won't necessarily work for another. Good managers ask themselves what they can do to enhance and refine motivation for their employees. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Keep them inspired
This is done by creating interest in the work that is to be done. Keeping employees energized and excited about what they are doing is an important aspect of a highly functional workplace. Take an honest look. Are your employees excited about what they are doing? If not, what can you do to increase their level of inspiration.
Help your employees set goals. This is vital for their success and can make or break a company. Put the goals in writing• Information sharing. Create the kind of environment where information sharing is rewarded and information hording is discouraged. This will keep energy flowing in the workplace, strengthen the company as a whole and make workforce changes easier to handle.
Reward Good Employees
Make sure you don't punish hard, reliable workers by dumping more and more responsibilities on them. If you want to keep them around, give them time off, monetary rewards or other rewards that are meaningful to them.
