Employee engagement ideas – 4 Simple ways To Motivate Your Staff

/ 0 Comments /

Why is employee engagement important?

  • Engaging with your employees is one of the secrets to running a successful business.
  • Your staff are your best asset, you have to make sure you take care of them.

Here are four simple ideas on how to engage and motivate your staff in your business.

1. Make fun a priority

Don’t misunderstand me here. You need balance. You need to make sure fun doesn’t become distracting and detrimental to your business. That said don’t underestimate the impact of allowing your team to have a laugh along the way.

You see fun is a great way to

  1. let off a bit of steam,
  2. reduce stress, and even…
  3. bond team members together.

2. Have a purpose, which your staff buy into

Take the time to create a purpose statement that truly reflects who you are, what you want to achieve, and who you want to impact. Then write this in words, which are easy to understand (by you, your staff, and your customers).

How To Engage and Motivate Your Staff

Even better, involve your team in the creation of your purpose statement. You can set the expectations and guidelines, but involving your key people in this decision can be hugely engaging. A shared purpose can bond your team together and increase overall buy-in too.

3. Reward strong performance creatively

Without question, money can be a massive motivator. In turn, a financial bonus or a pay rise can be a powerful way to recognise and reward brilliant performance.

But it’s not the only option…

It’s important to understand that not everyone is motivated by money. In fact, you could find that more creative rewards have a far greater impact on the individual in question and overall team morale.

4. Get the team together

A key part of building a brilliant team is to foster good working relationships between the different members of staff.

How individual team members interact has a big bearing on atmosphere, morale, and performance. Let’s face it. The last thing you want is people dreading going to work – that’s going to undermine your success significantly.

It’s for this reason that it pays to explore opportunities to get the team together in a relaxed, informal way. Do this and you can encourage friendships and collaboration – both of which help increase engagement.

The most effective bosses are proactive in their attempts to boost engagement – because they recognise the impact motivated, valued staff have on their business success.
