Money isn’t everything. Those of you who don’t think so may want to experience working in a high-paying job in an extremely stressful, unhappy workplace.
For those who think money is the biggest motivator at the workplace, you’re wrong. Good bosses and managers know the value of a happy office environment. They work on the little things that may seem insignificant but truly does matter to the employee – and therefore improve productivity and retention rates.
Here are just some of the things a boss may want to look at:
– Cut down on meetings. Work smarter, respect employee time and increase productivity,
– Let your employees use social media… moderately. While employees shouldn’t jeopardize their own careers blogging or tweeting about work, light use of social media at the office actually improves productivity.
– Appreciate them. A few good words can go a long way, especially for Gen Y workers. It really improves morale.
– Communicate often. Communication is important for building the right work culture.
