How to Motivate Your Employees

17th May 2017

As a Small Business Owner, you will need to motivate your employees, both permanent and temporary and those that work on a contract basis, so that they grow as individuals and your business grows as well. There are several ways to achieve this.

Show employees that you value them

It is important to praise your employees so that they feel that you value them and the skills that they bring. If you employees feel that they are working for an employer that values them as individuals then you will have created a motivated team of staff that will help you achieve the goals that you have set out. Thank your employees for a job well done and always praise them for doing their best.

Create a positive work environment

Feeling positive is also a very important factor when it comes to creating a good work environment. If your employees feel positive when they come to work then they will perform better. Motivation has a direct impact on efficiency. A good way to build a positive environment is to ensure that all members of the team have some sort of team building experience. This will go a long way in bringing your employees together to work as a team and create a positive and motivating environment at work. Temporary staff and contract staff should also be included as they often play supporting roles to a lot of your permanent employees.

Empower employees

Empower your employees by allowing them to take on responsibilities around their job that they can own and be proud of. Any achievement they make will be attributed to them and they will be motivated to achieve their best every day at work. Another way to empower them is to take their ideas into account. Many small ideas can have a substantial impact on your business especially if they revolve around customer service and efficiency issues.

Set employee goals and feedback

Provide opportunities for growth by stretching yourself and your employees. This will motivate them to achieve more than they thought possible. A good way to achieve this is by setting goals with them and then reviewing them periodically. Ensure that this is a positive motivating meeting where any other issues can be brought up in a calm and positive environment.

Provide Training opportunities

By providing training to employees at some point can have a profound impact on your business and the way that you can achieve things. As a small business owner, it is best not to stretch yourself to thin and manage all aspects of your business. It is preferable to train your loyal and motivated staff to learn new skills and help your business grow while you concentrate on finding new ways to build your business.
