Employee motivation is something companies strive to achieve amongst all of their employees.
Like employee engagement, highly motivated employees are committed to performing well and striving to achieve success for the benefit of themselves, their team and their company. See more on employee engagement here.
The challenge for companies is identifying the best ways to maximise and maintain employee motivation. Companies can encourage employees to be motivated by ensuring that employees are both supported and challenged, and have realistic professional goals to work towards. This helps to inspire employee motivation by giving employees a sense of purpose and direction in their working lives.
Professional incentives such as bonuses and accolades also help to keep employees motivated and striving for success.
