You’ve got a full roster of employees. But do you know who’s doing the heavy lifting?
Not all of them! That’s a sure thing.
It’s tough to keep your staff engaged every minute or every day. Tough. Not impossible. What you need to do to keep all of them as connected as possible to the goal they’re collectively reaching for, is to enhance their motivational instinct.
And that instinct is, primarily, self-interest.
Employee motivation – a veritable gold mine of increased profits – is elusive at times. But with the right strategy, you can get your employees engaged and keep them that way.
Employers can no longer count on fallbacks like pay increases, bonuses and benefits enhancement. Employees don’t get a thrill from those. If you’re a quality employer, your employees are already deriving the monetary benefit of that quality.
It’s no good to tell them they’ll keep their jobs if they perform to expectations. When you’re trying to grow, “doing the minimum” isn’t going to cut it. And this employment market belongs to employees. Their mobility has never been better, especially if they’re highly skilled.
It’s not like they don’t know their value. They’ll head for greener pastures if they’re not getting what they need from your company.
Motivation is speaking to employee self-interest in a more compelling way. That “more compelling way” means putting something on the table to sets off employee pleasure centers.
Travel, for example. Tying your company goals to the dreams and desires of your employees is a proven way to extract from them the kind of top performance and productivity you’re looking for.
The idea of coming out on top and winning an incentive gets the juices flowing, the healthy competition going and motivation sparking.
Employee motivation, when expressly included in company culture as one of its pillars, is an effective model for growing your company by engaging and thus, retaining your star people.
That’s how incentive programs work. When woven into a strong company culture, they send a message of rewards for the kind of work that reaches a little further than what’s expected. When that culture embraces all effort that contributes to growth and success, it becomes a buoyant reality that raises the level of employee engagement and stems turnover.
A quality incentive program which taps into the dreams and desires of employees is where your gold mine of increased profits begins. With exceptional ROIs which leave monetary incentives and rewards in the dust, travel incentives serve to hit employees where they live – offering them something extraordinary in return for their best effort.
