What’s the incentive?
Employees’ motivation at work is influenced by a mix of incentives. If we have the proper incentives in place, the system works best. The salary is an incentive, the raise is an incentive, and the promotion is an incentive. There are other incentives as well. Figuring out what motivates the employee or employees’ is critical to the employee’s growth and the company’s growth. Then there are the intangibles when employees’ do a great job: the verbal acknowledgements of appreciation, company wide recognition, the unexpected treat, giving respect where its due, etc.
