Where am I?

In StartupTalky you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

As a manager, one has to look into many things; motivating employees, co-workers is one of them because a motivated employee can work more efficiently and passionately.

Be a Respectful, Honest and Supportive manager

 Things like respect, honesty, support and clear communication are the foundations here. If manager pays respect and supports the employees, it really helps make them feel good to be part of the organisation. Thus, they work more efficiently. In a nut shell, if you’re a good person to work for, your employees will be more loyal.

Give them room to grow

If an employee is good at something or has some wonderful skills, then manager must support him to work more on his skills.Especially if your business is rapidly expanding, giving your employees room to grow within the company is a huge motivator. If you’re opening up a second location, think about which of your employees might be a good fit for a management role there. 

Share positive feedback

It’s great to feel fulfilled by your work. In fact, it’s one of the key job satisfaction factors. Satisfaction in your work can come from a variety of places. If the customers express a positive feedback about the product/service, then it must be shared with the employees.  Letting your employees know they made someone’s day (or more) makes them feel good and gives them a deeper connection to your business.

Maintain friendly relation 

It's good to have friendly relationship with employees/colleagues because it makes the work environment more comfortable. There should not always be tension among employees regarding work. So having an aesthetically pleasing, well-lit, functional, and fun space makes work a lot more pleasant.
