5 No-Cost Ways to develop and sustain Motivated and Energized Employees.

No-Cost Ways to Energize Employees

Some of the most effective things you can do to develop and sustain motivated and energized employees cost nothing. They are a function of the daily interactions that you have with employees at work. Consider the power of "the five I's":

Interesting Work. Everyone should have at least a part of their job be of high interest to them. As management theorist Frederick Herzberg put it, "If you want someone to do a good job, give them a good job to do." Find out what tasks your employees most enjoy and use that information in future work assignments.

Information. More than ever, employees want to know how they are doing in their jobs and how the company is doing in its business. Open channels of communication to allow employees to be informed, ask questions, and share information.

Involvement. Involving employees in decision making, especially when the decisions affect them directly, is both respectful and practical. Those closest to the problem typically have the best insight as to what to do about it. As you involve others, you increase their commitment and ease in implementing new ideas or change.

Independence. Most employees appreciate having the flexibility to do their jobs as they see fit. Giving people latitude increases the chance that they will also perform as you desire—and bring additional initiative, ideas, and energy to their jobs.

Increased Visibility. Everyone appreciates getting credit when it is due. Occasions to share the successes of employees with others are almost limitless. Giving your employees new opportunities to perform, learn, and grow as a form of recognition and thanks is highly motivating for most people.
