New research carried out by temporary staffing agency Unique (part of USG People) shows that only 54% of managers believe that their staff are motivated. 30% believe that theirstaff are not motivated and 16% don't know.
Unique Spain's General Director, Javier Ayuso commented "motivation is one of the factors which have direct repercussions for the productivity of workers and therefore of companies."
"We are surprised to see that only half of the managers interviewed believe that their staff are motivated but what is even more significant is that 67% of managers don't know what to do about it."
Ayuso outlines four points which companies should take into account:
- Employees should feel that they are creative. Monotonous and unsatisfactory tasks should be avoided.
- Achievements should be communicated. If an employee does not know the results of his work he/she will feel that his/her job serves no purpose.
- Employees should be rewarded for good work by climbing up the corporate ladder and getting more responsibilities.
- If employees know what they have achieved they feel better about themselves even if the results were not the desired ones.
