Everyone within the company will all have different motivating factors that influence why they come to work every day and what they want to achieve whilst they are at work.
This is one of the big factors as to why many people go to work. Having a salary helps to pay the mortgage, bills, holidays and other hobbies that people do outside the workplace. You may have other employees who see this as an opportunity to earn a pay rise or a promotion in a job which would see them also get a pay rise. You might have employees who accept a lower wage just for the fact that they enjoy the job and get a lot of job satisfaction out of it regardless what money they are getting in return.
Job satisfaction –
The next motivating factor might well be job satisfaction; some employees strive on this and want to do a job well for themselves and for the company they are working for. Someone who fits kitchens for a living will strive on seeing a kitchen finished after seeing what it looked like before and this will be a total job satisfaction seeing the customer who is overwhelmed with their new kitchen.
Every leader has a job to make sure there team is motivated by this and feels important and that they then get rewarded for this dedication although this doesn’t have to be financially this can also be emotionally.
Every time a job is completed on time it is vital that the team is recognised for this good work as it will maintain motivation for when the next job is set upon the team. A reward can be a financial gift or as simple as a thank you. Recognition could be made in a one to one conversation or could be done as a group, highlighting individuals good work or the team pulling together to complete the job.
