How to keep employees happy and motivated

A happy and motivated employee is very vital for the survival of any organization. Where your employees are always happy and motivated, they will be able to properly carry out their duties and produce the best result possible. If on the other hand they are not properly motivated, they will just do enough to get the job done, without really caring if that is the best that can be achieved or not. Here are some ways you can keep your employees happy and motivated.

Provide them with tools

For virtually every type of task today, there are some equipment that will make that job easier. The equipment will make it easier for the employee to do the task he has been assigned, while also producing better results. When the right equipment are provided for an employee, chances are that he will be happier and more motivated doing the job.

Thank them for good work

Everybody loves to be complimented when they have done something good. It goes a long way to show them that their efforts are seen and appreciated. There are however, a lot of workplaces where the leaders of the organization hardly utter any kind work to the employees. They are always quick to condemn such employees for doing something wrong. When they however, do something right, they do not get any compliment. This could make them resent that work place, make them unhappy and not motivated, and they will be looking out for other options to leave the organization. When you are quicker to compliment good deeds than condemn wrong deeds, it will go a long way to boost how happy and motivated your employees will be.

Make opportunities for training

Training is very vital in organizations as it helps employees to be better at what they do, which will be very beneficial to the individuals and organization. Trainings often open the path for career growth for staffs. They are therefore, much happier when they are working in a place that they are able to enjoy regular training. It is thus important to have a training routine in place which should be adhered to, so that employees go on training when they are due. This will go a long way to keep them happy and motivated.

Reward them

Everybody love gifts and people want to be rewarded when they have gone out of their way to do a good job. This makes them know without doubt that their efforts are appreciated and it will encourage them to continue to do a good job. There are several inexpensive but thoughtful rewards that you could give to employees who have done a good job.

Talk to them kindly

Nobody loves to be harassed, embarrassed or shouted on. Try to avoid all of these when you are trying to correct an employee. This is especially when it was obvious he made a mistake or did it without knowing. Correcting with kind words will make it easier for them to understand your concern and correct them than when you shout angrily at them.
