It’s a fresh new year and motivating your employees and shaking things up needs to be a priority. It’s important to motivate your employees to get positive employee engagement and quality work. So how can you make your employees feel passionate again and want to spend time at work? Motivating your employees does not have to be a huge undertaking. Here are some fun yet simple ways to motivate your employees in the new year.
Make them feel trusted.
If you let your employees know that you trust and depend on them, they will work hard to fill those shoes. A vote of confidence can go a long way. Let them know you trust them to do the best job possible and they will rarely disappoint you.
Create a friendly work environment.
Your employees spend a huge amount of their time at work. So try to make the office look and feel as appealing as possible. When you create a pleasant atmosphere where it is welcoming and comfortable, your employees will embrace it. They will be more excited to go to work every day, and more eager to work hard.
Everyone wants to be recognized for positive things. The acknowledgment of a job well done coming from management will mean more to an employee than you think. Always remember to give credit when credit is due and that pats on the back cost nothing.
Give your employees purpose
Motivate your employees by giving them a purpose. When you do that, they understand the vision and are better able to execute. In addition, by understanding their purpose and the purpose of the business, an employee is better able to understand how they fit into their role.
There will be times when more than acknowledgment is needed. Try giving simple incentives when rewarding engaged employees. And it doesn’t always have to be monetary rewards. Try fun and simple things like a week of having a personal parking spot or a free sick day.
Ensure your team knows it’s important to maintain a good work-life balance. Encourage employees to use that vacation time. An office culture that prioritizes a quality work-life balance, produces increased productivity and overall workplace happiness, leading to higher motivation.
Encourage positive communication.
Communication is one of the easiest and most common things you will do at work, yet it can often be the most difficult. Spend a short period of time each day talking with your employees. Discussing things like any concerns or ideas. This will not only make your employees happy, it will also provide you with much needed insight.
As you work to find the best motivators for your practice, keep in mind that every medical office is different. You may need to make some adjustments as you discover what works best for your office and what does not. As you work to perfect your strategies, do not forget that a motivated employee who enjoys coming to work is a worthwhile investment.Posted by
