Creative Ways to Motivate Your Employees

The common thread that runs through all small businesses, from professional services to manufacturing, is that a motivated workforce is central to the business’s success.

Here are some quick, inexpensive, and potentially effective ways to motivate your employees and improve your employee retention.

Weekly “Good News” Emails

Too often the business day can be about addressing problems or issues, large and small. We forget to recognize the “wins” and other positive accomplishments. Yet, it is the successes we achieve that inspire us to reach new heights.

Encourage Mental Breaks

Whether it is making sure employees go out for lunch, take a mid-day walk, or even take a short “power nap,” these breaks away from the grind can re-energize, refresh, and even lead to new ideas.

Be Visible

As a leader, your troops appreciate your visibility and a human connection to you. Walk around the floor. Write handwritten notes of appreciation. Roll up your sleeves to help meet a deadline.

Break the Routine

Think about bringing in a community speaker for a “lunch and learn” session. Perhaps even sponsor a “bring your pet to work day!” Changing up the routine inspires, invigorates, and makes it more fun to be at work.

Invite Staff to Client Visits

Not only will an employee appreciate the opportunity to visit with a client and the vote of confidence it implies, but he or she will gain a valuable perspective on what a client needs and the integral role he or she has in delivering your service or product.
