It’s NOT All About the Money, Money, Money… Motivating Employees in the New Year!

Kathy Barthelt 0 12718 Article rating: 5.0

Have you ever thought about what really motivates your employees?

It’s not about the almighty dollar, you know. Ok, ok…..money doesn’t hurt, but money alone doesn’t keep most people in their jobs. You actually need to motivate your employees to keep them showing up, mentally, and physically. Employees that don’t feel motivated are probably underperforming, and that means you’re losing money.

Ask yourself these questions about your employees:

  • Are they happy…..YES….HAPPY! Do they enjoy coming to work every day?
  • Do they feel challenged, or do they feel demeaned?
  • Are they sinking, or are they swimming?
  • Do they have the right tools in their arsenal to battle the giants?
  • Where’s the reward?

What happens when Steve gets hit by a bus, or decides that warm sandy beaches are calling his name, and he just doesn’t want to work anymore?

Are you prepared for his departure? Is your business prepared? For many manufacturing companies, that answer would be “NO”.
