3 Employee Motivation Tactics That Work

Employee motivation has gone way beyond the traditional cash bonus or employee of the month trophy. Employees want motivation programs that really dedicate them to their work and their peers. Here are three employee motivations tactics from  B2BNewsNetwork to help you revamp your program.

  1. Unlimited Vacation and Sick Days: This seems like it could turn into a runaway train, but giving employees unlimited PTO  can actually be a great motivator. Since they can choose to not be at work at any time, the time they are at work is more productive. Additionally, from a long-term loyalty standpoint, employees feel that their employer is giving them incredible freedom and they feel the responsibility to remain dedicated and loyal to the organization as a result.
  2. Peer-to-Peer Recognition: Rewards and recognition shouldn't always come from management. Allowing peer-to-peer recognition to either take place publicly or privately is a great way to build camaraderie across teams in your organization and empower employees to go above and beyond their regular job responsibilities. If you allow employees to give each other rewards, make them small, like a small denomination gift card to a favorite retailer or restaurant. Just a small thank you from someone other than their boss can give employees a great boost.
  3. Giving Back: Creating a culture of community service is a cool and innovative way to motivate staff. Showing and including employees in corporate social responsibility initiations makes employees proud to be a part of their organization, and can give employee motivation in day-to-day responsibilities a big boost.
