Small Business Stories: Employee Motivation

If you’re like most traditional small business owners, you can’t do everything yourself. You hire a team of employees to help you run your business — from managing day-to-day customer interactions to helping you make long-term executive decisions that could affect your business for years to come.

A key to running a successful business is to have employees who care about that business as much as you do. You want them to be motivated to do their best work on your behalf. That might mean offering competitive salaries and benefits packages. It can mean recognizing a job well-done. And it can involve empowering employees so they feel like they’re really making a difference rather than just following orders. Those are just a few examples of employee motivation tactics.
