Managers View - Motivating Employees

As a manager, you want to be able to ensure that your very best staff stay engaged and motivated. If this is the year to make it happen - here are our top tips.

Schedule time to listen to employees

schedule time to listen to employees about their issues and give them a chance to ask questions about their job and why they stay at the business. You should listen and look out for signals and body language that tells a bigger story than they might be prepared to share if they say that everything is ‘fine’.

Try Remove Obstacles

Whatever an employee opens up about, try and share information that reduces uncertainty. If a lack of motivation is a workload issue, take a look at how you can extend delivery times, add more employees to lighten the load or if you can reshuffle other projects or working hours. Take each matter in your stride, calmly, and question how you can make a difference. “What can I do to make it better?”- The answers might surprise you.

Reward and recognise

Gift cards are part of a growing market and they represent a great way to offer employees a symbol of thanks the whole year round. SVM Global can offer gift cards for 100's of retailers, the ideal way to say, 'you are valued'.
