Do You Know What Motivates Your Employees?

What is most likely to motivate your employees on a day-to-day basis? Is it the paycheck at the end of the week? Is it the occasional rewards or company picnics? Or is it the pride and sense of accomplishment working for a successful organization?

While all of these factors may motivate an employee to perform well over a certain period of time, they don’t necessarily provide enough motivation for the day-to-day effort. For example, an employee may come in on a Monday morning and face an overwhelming task. What is going to motivate them to work hard even though they are still in weekend mode? While the pay may help, a motivating atmosphere and work environment may become the number one motivator for your team members.

It is simple: a motivated employee will perform their job responsibilities better. Studies have shown that while most employees are motivated during their first six months on a new job, their initial enthusiasm and excitement slowly fades away. So, as a manager, how do you create a work environment that maintains enthusiasm each day for the long term?

When information is hard to find, outdated, nebulous, or incomplete, the effect is profound. If they can’t see it, it’s as good as nonexistent. The fact is, the visual elements in a workplace have a tremendous impact on execution, morale, and productivity. And it’s not just about information access. A visually dynamic workplace energizes employees, builds pride and ownership, and conveys the strength and currency of the organization.
