How to Motivate Your Employees to be Awesome!
We recently blogged about how TSheets helps employees track time and awesomeness. For real. Why should that matter to your business? A recent article in Forbes, sheds some light on why it’s important (for your business) to motivate your employees to achieve a.k.a be awesome.
At TSheets we track some important data for your business that impacts your bottom line, your future profitability, and time saved or conversely wasted at work. Pretty much all numbers (number crunchers eat your heart out!).
What about the employees behind those numbers? While everyone has unique motivations (a combination of personality, personal interests, maturity, etc.) one way to ultimately motivate your employees is by giving them an opportunity to have an impact at work.
In our recent blog about tracking time and awesomeness, we cover several ways TSheets benefits your employees; one in particular, letting them know their work counts.
When your employees successfully track their time in TSheets, as an employer, you see just how many hours of sweat and tears they are investing in your business, towards a project, an achievement, a long-term client, etc.
Since you have the data: acknowledge them, empower them, encourage them. And when it comes to planning for future projects, use the data to have realistic expectations and set achievable goals for your employees.
As a leader, have the conversation with your employees; find out if they are satisfied in their work and what their goals are. Be specific in how you will help them achieve their goals and create an opportunity for them to achieve and have a long term impact on your business (and ultimately their career).
