If you are running your own business or you manage a large team you will know the how difficult it is to keep your team motivated. The US Bureau of Labor that productivity in many industries has dropped in the past 12 months, with the manufacturing industry seeing a 2% drop. Without motivation your team will feel dissatisfied at work, will struggle to complete tasks and will ultimately lose business for you.
Studies have shown that workplace productivity improves up to 25% when we actively engage with our employees.
How, then, do we ensure that our employees feel connected to our business goals? Here are a few ideas that may help to inspire your employees so that productivity can increase.
When employees do not learn new things they can become bored of the work they are doing and this attitude will spread through the workforce. There are lots of physical and online CPD courses that can enhance the skills of your staff that will keep them hungry for more.
Instead of emailing the same orders to your staff try to talk to them face to face. When staff are kept in the loop and are given updates on progress they can have more input and will feel part of a team that want to achieve the same overall goal.
