Money is great, but there are other important factors to employee satisfaction. You have some great people working for you. You want to give them more than just the occasional pat on the back. You also have some people who could stand to work harder, and you want to motivate them. Here are some ways to have fun and create a work environment built on optimism, teamwork, and respect.
Employees don’t just want to come to work every day. They want to be part of something that makes a difference. Show them how your company is part of something bigger. Here are some tips:
Do something to acknowledge every employee’s birthday. Keep up with life events like weddings, graduations, and new babies.
Some of the most difficult situations arise when tragedy strikes. When employees experience long-term personal illness or a death in the family, it’s important to know their employer supports and cares about them. Have a plan and set aside funding for these situations.
Identify the behaviors you feel would most benefit your employees. Talk about, give examples of, and model that behavior. At your next meeting, get employee input. Brainstorm a list of positive affirmations and behaviors. Post the list where employees can see it and set goals to make use of it daily.
One of the things employees value most is feeling appreciated by their boss. Try these strategies to make them feel valued.
