Your employees are the assets of your business. Your business productivity increases with the hard work and dedication of your workers. Your workers or employees spend much time in the workplace i.e. in your organisation. So naturally, they spend more time with their colleagues and managers or bosses than their families. Thus, it is very important to have positive vibes in the workplace. No one will be able to work properly giving 100% effort in an environment of accusations, fear, hatred or anger. Also, too much interference of the higher level authority can create a disturbing and irritating scenario in the workplace.
A thank you card or a hand written note to any employee works much more to motivate and appreciate them than employee rewards. Rewarding your employee is absolutely fine, but thanking them gives a feeling of doing something great for the company. It gives a feeling that they are also an important part of the company irrespective of their designations.It is true that all the staffs look forward for staff incentives, but personal thanks from the manager or boss or any higher level authority boost them to work even harder. It makes them feel important and gives a realization that you support them. They feel more encouraged hence will perform better.Ways great managers motivate their employees:-
