Motivation is key to a positive company culture. It underpins why we work and how we work. So what is motivation and how do you motivate your employees? Motivation in the workplace is the desire to work hard, produce great quality work and continue to develop as a professional. To be motivated as individuals, we need to feel engaged with the work we’re doing. A recent Gallup study of 350,000 respondents found that only 30% of individuals were actually engaged as employees, and in many companies efforts to develop and improve talent have remained stagnant. Although employee engagement is not a direct measurement of motivation, a lack of engagement is certainly an indicator that businesses may be struggling to motivate and develop their employees. To fully motivate and engage your people, you need to understand what motivation is, how we experience it as individuals and what motivators will drive the best performance.
