At most organizations, human resource professionals are engaged in motivating their staff members. How do they do this? And how do they do it effectively?

Professionals have varying views on the subject, but there are a few rules that are followed by nearly every organization. One can define motivation as a mixture of desire and energy focused on achieving a common goal.

Positive Work Environment



A major challenge for human resource professionals is creating an environment that motivates people. The first step should be eliminating actions that discourage people and identifying factors that encourage them. Providing ergonomically designed work stations and a professional, organized office environment is essential. In environments that are conducive to work, every individual is looked upon as a leader and a valuable contributor to the organization.

Recognition and Rewards

Employees provide their services in return for salaries and work satisfaction. But motivating employees to go above and beyond depends on human resource management. Recognizing and rewarding an employee for outstanding performance motivates not only the employee but also his or her colleagues. When they see that high-quality work is rewarded, they will strive to achieve as well.

Ethics

Every action taken by management reflects the organization’s ethics. Organizational leaders should ensure that they model the behavior they expect from employees when conducting business. Fostering an ethical professional environment will encourage employees to work harder and avoid taking shortcuts. Conducting business dishonestly will result in dishonest employees.

Planning and Problem Solving

Employees who are allowed to participate in decision-making processes are motivated to think like business owners. They understand their roles within their organizations more clearly, which encourages them to fully utilize their capabilities. Allowing employees to get involved in decision making and problem solving also demonstrates that organizational leaders appreciate their input.

On-the-Job Challenges

A job that is dull and boring will motivate no one. Human resource professionals should work to ensure that people enjoy their work. Meaningful work, even if it is tedious, makes employees happy since they know it is important for the survival and growth of the organization. Every organization needs to offer challenges to its employees, and challenges are generally offered by companies that constantly strive for growth.

Trust

Trust is one of the most important aspects of a company’s growth. Employees who trust their leaders will give 100%. They will be motivated to take that extra leap to overachieve set targets, resulting in greater profits.

In today’s often chaotic work environment, commercial success depends on employees utilizing their talents fully. However, one should remember that every individual is motivated by different rewards. Encouraging motivation is ultimately about providing employees what they want most from their work. Only when employees are motivated can an employer gain what he or she wants most: productivity, quality, and loyalty.
