We know that staff help create a successful business, but what is it that makes staff happy and how do you keep them that way?
In this video we share our top 3 tips on keeping staff happy and motivated in the workplace.
1. RESPONSIBILITIES & PURPOSE – By ensuring that all staff understand their responsibilities and how their work has an impact on the success of the business, staff are more likely to remain motivated if they feel as though they have a purpose.
2. ENCOURAGE INPUT – By encouraging staff to give input on new ideas and improvements, they will feel like an important part of the team, regardless of whether or not you actually use their suggestions.
3. SHOW APPRECIATION – Money is not always a motivator if your staff are bored or feel undervalued. Long term motivation happens when staff feel they are appreciated, have a purpose, and an opportunity to contribute. A simple “thank you” goes a long way.
BONUS TIP – HAVE SOME FUN – Be sure that you allow your staff to have some fun. Most people spend more time at work than they do at home, so if you try to keep the vibe light and positive, you will create an environment of happy, hardworking staff.
