As a small business owner, you’re responsible for your employees’ level of productivity. Find out how to motivate your workforce with little or no financial investment, and increase your bottom line.
Employee satisfaction must be part of your core business strategy. You draw power and success from your staff working to the best of their ability, and they need to feel you support them. Help your workers gain confidence in their output by providing the necessary training, resources and support to complete their daily tasks. Match your employees with work that interests them so they take action more quickly, are fully engaged and work harder. Set high expectations for on-the-job performance so your staff members are more willing to accept challenging assignments later on. Let your employees know your door is always open for them to communicate their needs and concerns and improve their work environment.
Giving your staff more responsibility and decision-making power over certain tasks empowers your employees to perform at higher levels. Let your workers express their creativity for the areas they excel in so they feel valued. Hold them accountable for their work so they focus on continually improving. Follow up on assignments to ensure the work is completed or assistance is given as needed. Cross-train your staff for work in other areas or departments. They’ll feel better knowing you trust them and will be more willing to work with colleagues on group projects. Your work environment will also be more flexible and open to change, resulting in greater employee retention.
Recognition and advancement motivate workers to complete their work efficiently. You need to publicly praise your workers for small wins throughout the day. Showing fairness and respect for your staff helps motivate them to do more for you.
Flexible Work Arrangements
Flex time, job sharing and condensed workweeks help your employees meet the demands of their personal lives while accomplishing their work tasks to help your company prosper. Let your staff choose their workspace or work longer days to take off one day weekly. They’ll appreciate your looking out for their needs and improve their work productivity.
More employee autonomy means greater retention, faster company growth and an increased bottom line. For further help with prospering your business, get in touch with the trained professionals at USA Staffing Services today!
