How to Motivate your Staff

How to keep your staff motivated

Successful companies manage to keep their staff turnovers to a minimum; and happy staff are productive staff, so what can you do to keep your staff members motivated?

Here are just a couple of tips for what has worked for Corporate Sound.

Recognise your Staff

If you have a staff member who has done an exceptional job, then make sure you recognise their achievement. Even if it is only a pat on the back, letting them know that you think they have done a good job, will encourage them to continue to achieve. Even the less egotistical of us humans like a pat on the back every now and then, even if it is to know that what they are doing is right.

Encourage Staff Training

Sadly, I have heard business owners and managers who are too scared to train their staff or encourage further education or training, because they consider that as a means of progressing the staff member’s career, rather than seeing it as a benefit for the business. The more your staff know, the more they can offer your business and its operations. The more you can offer your staff, the more they are likely to stay. It really is as simple as that.

Provide Direction

Even the most knowledgeable staff members can get lost, so make sure you let your staff know exactly what you expect of them, and the projects they are undertaking. Make sure you are available to offer advice and direction when they need it. Your staff will appreciate your open door policy, and you will get the best out of them in return.

Let Go of Micro-Managing

You hire people because of their skills. If you don’t need to, then don’t micro-manage your staff members, instead trust them to do the job you hired them to do.

Trust your Staff

Just as we mentioned above, you hired a people because you thought they were the right fit, so make sure you trust your staff to do what they are qualified to do … and you worry about your tasks at hand. If over time, your staff fail to achieve what they need to, then take action then, but in the mean time, you need to give them trust and know that you hired the right person to do the job at hand.

Having good, productive staff is essential for any business. Not only is it pivotal for operational success, but also to ensure that all stakeholders are happy in their positions. The way you treat your staff, will reflect on the way they do their job and how much they value their position.

Corporate Sound are the leaders when it comes to audio production, and we can proudly say, that we have maintained a good staff turnover since our inception. We value our staff immensely, and understand, that if it weren’t for them, then our business wouldn’t be where it is today.

Motivate your staff and increase productivity in your workplace.
