21 Nov Do you want a happy and motivated team?
When it comes to business, it’s still pretty tough out there. And when work is challenging and stressful it can be very easy for staff to feel constantly up against it.
This can soon lead to people getting seriously fed up and burnt out (with more sick days taken and even staff resignations).
Here then, we have five ways to build a happy and motivated team.
Make it clear what success looks like
We all feel better about work if we know we’re moving forward. Having a clear idea of when a job is successfully completed is a critically important part of staff motivation. You must both quantify and qualify this.
Ensure targets are achievable
A success target should be both challenging and achievable. Ensure therefore that your team members have the support, skills, knowledge and resources to get there (and enough time too).
Ask how you can help
Asking ‘What can I do to make your life easier’ not only shows leader empathy but the answer can even highlight poor and unnecessary working practices.
Encourage them to go home
An ongoing long-hours culture does not work for one simple reason; it’s unsustainable. Instead, encourage your staff to go home at the end of the day and come in the next morning, wanting to do it all again.
Thank and reward them
We’re not advising a ‘carrot and stick’ approach here but we are suggesting you reward your team for a job well done. A great way to do this is by booking a therapeutic on-site massage from Hands on at Work.
After all, imagine the buzz your team will get following a professional in-house massage event (and also, all the feel-good photos and stories you’ll have for your social media).
Hands on at Work is the premier provider of highly-qualified on-site massage in Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and the West Midlands.
