Chika UwazieEvery employer/manager knows how important it is for employees to be motivated because a motivated workforce is a productive workforce. Unfortunately, not every employer/manager succeeds at finding creative ways of motivating their workforce. Here are some awesome ways to motivate employees.

Gamification and  Incentives
Gamification is the application of typical elements of game playing and techniques in order to engage people and motivate them to achieve their goals. This is a very innovative method of motivating employees because it is fun and everyone likes to have fun.

Incentives are also a good way to reward and motivate your employees after a job well done. These incentives could be material (a raise, a gift, a promotion) or non-material (flexible hours, a day off, professional growth).

Empower Employees
As an employer/manager, you have obviously determined and informed everyone how each task should be done by each employee, and that’s cool. But sometimes, your employees might come up with a more efficient way of how they or others can do their job. If you really want to motivate your employees, you should listen to them and welcome their new ideas.

Technology
We are in the digital age and we have to embrace it whether we like it or not. I know this sounds funny, but there’s literally an app for everything now (every single thing) and wherever  you go, you will always find a little piece of technology. Technology has helped us simplify and speed up different processes, from communication to industrialization to basically anything you can think of. So when we talk about employee motivation, technology definitely has a role to play there.

HR Technologymotivates employees by;

  1. Bridging the communication gap: When it is difficult for employees to get through to their managers or even their coworkers because of a communication barrier, it often demotivates them. HR Technology provides collaboration and communication tools to ensure constant connection at anytime and anywhere.
  2. Automating Payroll Processes: Payroll is one HR Process many managers wish they didn’t have to do manually because it is very time consuming, stressful and prone to human error. One little mistake can cause late or incorrect paychecks and that can seriously demotivate employees. HR Technology provides Payroll Management Software that is integrated with a Time & Attendance System which streamlines payroll processes and ensures speed, accuracy and employee satisfaction.

Set a Good Example
It is important for managers to set a good example for employees to follow. If a manager is excited about a new project and works hard on it, it will only motivate the workforce to do the same because hard work and excitement can be very contagious.
Managers/employers should constantly find creative and innovative ways of motivating their workforce because business success is highly dependent on that.

    Hypocrite. Your topic said “4 insanely awesome ways to motivate workforce” and then the article is banal and all about advertising automated systems. You are a hypocrite.

    Next time, make sure the content is what the headline suggests it would be. You are after-all trying to come across as a professional and not the editor of a soft sell magazine aren’t you?

    to be honest, i saw the first point and burst out laughing. it works for some people, but i would just start laughing like shuoe, see these ones trying to manipulate me o, because i’m six years old.
    it’s not easy to keep tricking people nah 😀
    what works for me is truth: what is the actual mission. is it worthy of our energy, time, etc? then if it’s not really a positive job, mission-wise, then let the pay be solid and the stress/insults be minimal and we’re good.
