They say that money can’t buy happiness, and it can’t always buy employee motivation either. Check out these helpful tips by Progressive Business Publications Newsletters for motivating workers without your wallet.
One of the best rewards an employer can offer an employee is paid time off, or “well days.” Another great way to show an employee you trust their ability to work on their own and value their commute time is to let them work from home on occasion. Many employers might shy away from this, but without workplace distractions, many employees are actually able to be more productive from home.
Some more great ways to motivate employees are to have business cards printed out, which can help them to feel their contribution is important. Offer yoga once or twice per week to help alleviate stress and increase productivity. You can also institute community service days where workers can give back to the community and feel better about themselves through volunteering.
