BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW TO MOTIVATE EMPLOYEES TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE

HOW  TO MOTIVATE EMPLOYEES TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE

All business owners definitely want to up their game, maximize profit and satisfy clients.

However, to make this a reality, you need a workforce that's up- and- doing.

Then the big question is- how do you motivate your staff to be more productive in order to help your business grow?

Mandating them to work all day? Definitely not! Buying them with money; that's going to birth a short- lived result even if it works at all.

Well, it might interest you to know that boosting employees morale to do more doesn't really require a whole lot of money as you may have imagined.

All you need is a little planning and then devise a method to keep your workforce happy.

Happy you say? Yes, happiness is the central point of all. When you're happy, you work faster, better and become more productive.

Having said this, let's trek through the following tips we've provided below:


# introduce fun- filled activities: We're all humans and sometimes, we need a break! Your organizational routine shouldn't be just work, work and work all through.


Sometimes, your employees do need a break to clear their heads. A fun-filled activity could do it.

Occasionally, you could organise picnics or go for sightseeing. Sport activities could also be a great idea.

#  Celebrate them: When was the last time you sang a song for your employee on his birthday or gave him a surprise gift card?

To boost your employees morale to perform better, you need to celebrate them. Make them feel important. Let them know you care and not just making sure they do what they're paid for.

Go extra length! Learn to surprise them on their birthday, anniversary and many other whatnots. Celebrate your employees!

# Be honest with correction and generous with praise: If an employee needs correction, give it. If  they did  well, tell them.

As an employer, you should always lavish your employees with encouragement and praise when deserved because people need affirmation you know. Praise is a great source of comfort and motivation for a workforce.

Tell your employees how well they are doing. Let others know how well they are doing too. Recognition is a little different from just praising someone. Praise might be done in private. Recognition is generally in front of others.

# Good communication: Your employees need more than a ' boss figure' to perform better. They need someone who cares for them. Someone who's not only interested in seeing them get their jobs done. But also ready to give a listening ear to their personal issues.


An employee having serious problems back home may not be able  do well at work.

How well do you know your employees, their families, spouses, hobbies?

Getting employees to perform better requires more than the quick exchange of pleasantries every morning. It also requires sound communication!

# Give incentives: Sure, you knew this was coming. It goes a long way in boosting your employees morale and it doesn't have to cost much!

Consider things like gift cards, tickets to the Cinema, bonuses, or a ride to the office or home after work.

These little things give your employees the impression that you appreciate their time and effort.

# Trust is essential: Let your employees know you trust in their ability to complete the task, close the deal or finish the project.

Most employers find it easy enough to allocate different tasks to employees but pretty difficult to let them handle it without close monitoring.

This simply shows that you do not trust them to get the job done. And at the long-run, dwindle their performance rate.

When you show your trust in them, they become confident and they scarcely let you down.

# Let their voice be heard: Some employers work with a kind of appearance that demands everything be done their way all the time.

With this attitude, your employees will never be encouraged to relate their ideas that can help develop the organization.

This makes everything go like a ' one - way traffic' and therefore kills their readiness to work.

You must create an atmosphere where people can say what they need to say and not just what you want to hear.

If you are going to benefit from the people you employ, you can't intimidate them into silence and miss the chance to make the team more effective.

You may agree to compromise on the final solutions but no one wins when one of you must be a mute in order for the other one to be happy.

Be flexible enough to inspire your workforce to perform better. It's important for you to allow them have a say in the company's affairs. Let their voice be heard!

But, why is it important to keep employees motivated you may ask. It's simple. Keeping your employees motivated (happy) and positively engaged to work makes you experience better performance from them.

CAREER: JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION

JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Need I remind you the saying, " first impression lasts longer." Then, if truly you know this and you believe it holds( sure it does), you'll agree with me that making a good first impression is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.
What you showcase determines the kind of response you receive. Should in case you come out offensively, say in an argument, then you leave the recipient with no other option than to receive it defensively.
Now, back to the matter in consideration, making a good first impression at JOB INTERVIEWS is simple but several people flop and at the long-run taint their chances of securing the job. Then you return to square one.
First impression apart from your resume/qualifications plays a very cogent role in determining whether you'd be singled out of the countless applicants for the job.
Now that you've realized how important making a good first impression is, I'll enjoin yo…

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…

FEATURED POST: LEVELS OF FRIENDSHIP

LEVELS OF FRIENDSHIP
So many people lack a clear picture and understanding of the levels of friendship which entails specific freedoms and responsibilities, depending on the closeness of the relationship.
At times, we take one level for the other. We offer our time, attention and resources to a friend expecting something equivalent in return.
But as disappointing as it may be, we get something contrary or something below our expectations and at the long-run, suffer emotional trauma and heart- break.
These emotional pains and heart breaks could have been avoided or at least reduced if one had a clear understanding of the different levels of friendship and had treated each friend according to his category.
Of a truth, the following list of the basic levels of friendship can be found in many works on relationships.
This list can help you determine the rightful place for the different people in your life:
