Frequently asked questions

Motivation

Keeping your employees motivated starts from the top of the business; being supportive; creating a positive company culture; adopting flexible policies that work, rather than rigid, archaic practises. Making people feel valued and investing in them really helps ensure employee motivation is high, and your teams are super productive.

A lack of motivation in the workplace can be detrimental to any business. It can lead to poor productivity and output of work, as well as low engagement, absenteeism and presenteeism and high staff turnover. Keeping your workforce motivated is so important for any business.

Employee motivation can be the difference between a highly profitable, reputable business and a stagnant organisation that is simply treading water. A engaged and positive employee base really does achieve fantastic results. 

Retention

Making sure that your employees are happy at work is vital in terms of retaining talent. If you have a high turnover in staff, you’re going to be spending a fortune on recruitment, you’re going to struggle with output and people aren’t going to want to work for you. Treating your employees well, putting the right processes and pathways in place mean that you can help to reduce staff turnover in your business. 

Building a strong and loyal workforce can be a great way to propel your business even further in your sector, and with the costs saved on recruitment processes, they can be invested back into the business. Treated well, employees will stay with you for a long time, even in the gig economy. 

Poor employee retention in your business can lead to a lack of engagement throughout your workforce, with poor work output. As other employees pick up the slack and take over different roles within their department, your workforce will feel flat and very stretched. Making sure your employees are motivated and happy in their work can be a way to combat employee turnover and keep retention high within your business.
