Boosting Morale on a Budget: Keeping Employees Motivated
Share this Article:

A company is only as good as its employees. Keeping them motivated sounds easy but is harder to accomplish than most would think. According to Forbes.com, over 43 percent of workers cite a lack of recognition as a determining factor when it comes to how they perform while on the job. The question is how to keep employees happy and on track while maintaining a profitable bottom line. The answer is easy and cheaper than many managers would think. Enterprise Mobility is able to help companies find ways to boost employee morale without breaking the bank.

Mediocirity
Recognize the Worthy

Recognize employees for their hard work and dedication to the company. A worker who is rewarded with a three-day weekend will work twice as hard during the other four days in appreciation. Make it a point to openly celebrate an employee's personal achievements. A worker who has been with the company for several years will respect members of management who recognize his or her commitment to the company. A gift certificate to a favorite restaurant for 5-, 10- and 15-year milestones may not seem like much, but to an employee it's a perk they will enjoy and can share with thier family.

Reward Employees Who Go Above and Beyond

Employees who dedicate their time and effort to improving the company and how it operates should also be rewarded for their efforts. When an employee discovers a cheaper way of performing a task or improving productivity, rewarding them for their efforts is cost effective. The compensation they receive will be a small price to pay for the financial benefits the company will receive in the long run. Show employees how their efforts impact the company. Employees are often left out of the loop and have no clue how their work affects those around them. Let them see firsthand how important their job really is to the success of the company.

Support Their Passion

An employee who is passionate about a hobby or activity will bring that same passion to his or her job if they know both are equally supported. Men and women who are active members of the National Guard, for example, look forward to serving their country as well as their employers. Members of management must recognize that level of dedication. It not only boosts the morale of their employees, but encourages them to do their best in both positions.

Keep Staff Motivated

Dedicated staff members don't like to waste time. Being able to access the information and tools they need when they are out and about is a primary concern. Enterprise Mobility allows them to think on the run without having to take notes or check on something when they get back to the office. At the same time, it allows you to keep your network updated and secure. Having approved apps and tools already on their mobile devices allows staffers to think on their feet and stay a step ahead of competitors.

Bring Management Down a Notch

According to ABC News, one of the most effective ways to boost morale is for members of management to show their employees just how much they appreciate them. One company formed a "snow patrol" complete with hats and t-shirts. Members of management go out and clean the snow and ice off of their employees’ cars and windshields. This small service to help their workers allows them to see management in a new light and to understand that their hard work is what makes it possible for members of management to do their jobs and further the company on its way to success. A small token of appreciation that shows employees their value can go a long way in boosting morale and keeping the workforce productive.
