Keeping Employees Motivated
There are various things in the office environment that make a business a success. One of them is having a good and efficient staff. In maintaining an efficient staff, recruitment alone is not sufficient. Even if you recruit the best, if you cannot retain them, then the organization is losing out on a lot and it isn’t simply monitory. Thus, one way of ensuring reduced employee turnover, is to ensure that all staff is motivated and happy to work in your organization. There are various ways in which you can keep them motivated. Here are a few.
Comfortable Office Environment
The office is where most people spend more than half their life in and definitely the most part of a weekday. Thus, having an interesting and comfortable office environment is important. One of the most important factors now designers stress on is the maintaining of daylight and open green spaces within an office complex. This form of interior architecture in Dubai helps relax the minds of the people. While this is hard to achieve in a high-rise complex.
At least having a few sky gardens, pocket gardens and common gathering spaces within the office will help. If you are looking to remodel your office, it is advised to obtain the services of fit out companies who will be able to give you a more detailed analysis and a better design altogether.
Another common reason why employees leave is when they feel that there is no future career development or prospects in store for them within the organization. While it is impossible to create positions within the office in order to promote people, having training programs, assigning more responsibilities are ways in which a single position and its net worth can be increased. If not promoted within that corporation, the person must feel that he is valued within the position he is fulfilling. A pay rise would also never be complained about either.
When budgeting and assigning KPIs, the top management like to dream big and assign tasks and deadlines which cannot be achieved either within that budget or that time frame. It is the lower management and the ground level staff who in turn suffer with unachievable tasks and KPIs which cannot be fulfilled. Thus, leading to demotivation and frustration. While it is important to push the task force to do better each year and assign harder KPIs, it is also important to ensure that they are achievable and realistic, and thus, rewarding them thereafter according to their performance through the year.
