A business is really only as good as its employees. When you find good employees it is worth valuing them, investing in training them and grooming them for bigger and better things.
It takes far more money and time to keep finding new employees than it does to work on the ones you already have and improve staff retention rates.
Employee motivation comes when employees know that they are valued by their employer and they are treated with respect.
Employees are more motivated when they feel like their work is being appreciated, they are treated well and that above all, they enjoy their work and like to contribute fully.
While looking after employees well is not rocket science, actively motivating their people is one that is often overlooked or not deemed particularly important by many businesses and organizations.
They could not be more wrong: high employee motivation leads to better performing businesses, because of the well-being of those employed there.
Sound pretty obvious really.
