As an employer or employee, there is always an unsaid belief in the workplace about motivation. Everyone needs a little motivation to get through a day in the office which at most times can be really depressing, what with all the endless running from one place to the other or deadlines you have to meet, clients you have to see and still keep your cool after all this. It is in light of these that you need to remember that having motivation in a workplace, whether you be the employer or the employee. Okay, am addressing both parties here because there can not exist one without the other. Both parties are to play a very significant role in what am about to share with you and therefore, close attention should be paid here. To ensure that there is maximum productivity at the workplace, there has to be a lot of motivation flying around in that place to encourage this. Some offices feel like cemeteries because there is no life going on there. Everyone just looks like they are there because they have nowhere else to be. What you need to know is that motivation will turn that cemetery into a wedding chapel and the kind of work that will be witnessed will be just amazing.
This here goes to the employers, many of you actually do not recognize any good work that has been done by a certain employee of yours. If you took the liberty to actually congratulate each of the employees at your workplace who do well, this will create a feel good relationship between you and the worker which leads to the person wanting to even do better next time. You should even recognize their excellent results public and I personally guarantee you that, you will see tremendous effort by the other workers who witness this.
The other thing that I am going to address to the employers is on the subject of incentives. You need to reward your employers each time they do something that is actually great in the workplace. If you included a few bonuses every once in a while or even some travel perks, that would really serve as a motivator to everyone there to work even harder. Trust me on this and you will be amazed at the kind of results that you actually get to see in your workplace.
I think this one now should address the employees. You need to set goals/objectives in your place of work. It is really pointless to go around doing something with no clear goal in mind. Having goals will not only help you find the motivation that you need but will also ensure that you are productive in work if you had goals, then you would have that senses of you are working towards something which is really great. If you do this, trust me that the results that you will see coming out of you will earn you promotion in no time at all.
So, be it an employer or employee, just try and work along these lines and you will be surprised at what you can actually accomplish. So, take these pointers into consideration because they are the motivation that you need to maintain good work and help you keep your job longer than you think.
