Your business runs because of the skills of your employees. If your employees don’t enjoy working for you, you’re never going to be a successful entrepreneur and end up in the lower leagues. That also doesn’t mean you have to keep them above your head. Following these top 5 ways to motivate employees will make sure your job’s done!
- Empower your employees
Give them some power to enjoy, let them cultivate the knowledge of applying power in a right manner. Then only your company will be able to grow. Of course, those who misuse it should be punished. It’s pretty much like allowing your son to make his daily errands by himself.
- Lead from the front
Remember they are your employees and at the end of the day, they wait for your decision. Unless you show them the right way, it is very rare that they’ll do a great job on their own. Like every successful team needs a leader, so does your workplace too!
- Provide an opportunity to grow
If you provide them a platform where they can flourish by their work, they’ll always be ready to give their level best in everything that they do. Will you work hard for someone who only pays you little enough for your survival even if you work the entire day for him?
- Reward them for their hard work
If they do a great job, reward them. If they screw up, show them where they are wrong but don’t give them a verdict. If they see that they’re rewarded for their hard work and that you appreciate their service, they’ll always like to stick around with your company!
- Appreciate in public and reprimand in private
People like to be appreciated in front of everyone but never wants to be scolded in front of people. You can convey them their wrong doings clearly by calling them to your office in a closed door meeting. You don’t have to pull them down in front of rest of the staff. But make sure you’re never short of showing appreciation when they deserve it. Only by this way can you ensure a healthy working environment!
