5 proven ways to keep employees motivated

Hiring a great team is only half the challenge when it comes to achieving continuous organizational success. The other half of the challenge is keeping employees motivated to retain talent and succeed in the long-run.

Here are some actions you could take to achieve your goal maintaining the team motivated.


Share positive feedback

Recognizing and appreciating employees for their achievements leads to employee satisfaction, boosts employee morale, and motivates them to do even better the next time. Tribute them and employees start showing respect, trust, and loyalty towards the company.

Make your business a pleasant place to be

A dark, cramped space with mediocre furniture is really not a welcoming workplace. Focus also on workplace aesthetics. Give your workplace a regular upgrade to make it interesting for employees. Even better, involve employees in the designing aspects. It’s a great way to engage them and achieve a workplace where they are happy to come even when there is remote work opportunity!

Focus on providing workplace flexibility

According to a study, 96% of employees prefer job opportunities that give them work flexibility. Modifiable work hours, remote working, and less travel are some common flexibility options that employees look for at a workplace. But this might not be the case for all your employees – ask what flexibility means to them.

Don’t discard food-based benefits

Why? Because, according to research, food-based perks rank second in the list of perks that employees “would be excited to have” at their workplace. After startups have gone wild with free food and drinks in the office, many companies are turning back from that trend saying that the only reason for free food is to keep people in the office longer. We don’t believe this is the whole truth – depends on the idea behind such benefit. This is also a way to show that you care about the health of your employees. Thus, consider healthier snacks.

Be respectful, honest, and supportive

This may seem like a no-brainer, but bad management is one of the top reasons employees run for the hills. Things like
respect, honesty, support, and clear communication are the foundations here. If you’re a good person to work for, your
employees will be more loyal. If you’re new to this whole management thing, it’s worth considering trainings. As a
