A recent Gallup poll showed that 70% of employees are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” at work. In order to motivate employees, do these 3 things well.
- Inspiration: “It is important that your culture be infused with meaning. Studies show that people who have a sense of purpose are more focused, creative, and resilient, so leaders should make a point of reminding employees how their work is improving people’s lives.”
- Kindness: “We are profoundly social creatures. Companionship and recognition are more important than even high salaries in promoting employee loyalty. Other research confirms that positive and warm relationships are one of the most important predictors of psychological well-being.”
- Self-Care: “Exercise, breaks from work, relaxation practices, and more strict boundaries between work and home can reduce job stress and increase employee well-being and engagement. A well-rested staff is a happier and higher-performing one.”
