It is no secret that motivated staff add to levels of retention and a general sense of positivity in the workplace. Keeping motivation levels high when staff are working remotely can be a difficult task, but it doesn’t need to be.
Motivation feeds into all aspects of a business. The commitment and drive that employees bring with them to work every day shapes the way in which the business will develop, expand, and retain their key members of staff. One way to ensure motivation is consistent is to ensure that employees receive regular feedback. Feedback is arguably the most important aspect of learning and developing. A colleague recently told me the quote ‘you are either winning or learning’ and this essentially boils down to the mindset during times where employees receive constructive feedback. When employees take feedback on in an objective manner with a growth mindset, it is one of the best ways to keep the motivation fire burning. Feedback cannot always be positive, and by the same token, it will not always be negative. The balance of the two are what allow us, as humans, to grow and become better rounded individuals in our careers. Setting and achieving tangible targets and giving recognition in the workplace are the best ways to ensure we maintain a motivated workforce, with low staff turnover, and in turn retain our best talent.
