Motivate Employees That Are Unproductive
Some employees come to work every morning, leave promptly at 5:00 p.m., and do just enough work to get by. Frequently they’re the remains of formerly enthusiastic and productive employees who are burned out or just feel forgotten. Here’s how to change that:
- Explain roles. Make a point of telling employees why you need them to do what they do. A thorough understanding of the role they play will help them find greater value in the work they do.
- Communicate customer feedback. Most employees enjoy hearing from customers. Share information and feedback about how their efforts affect the people who use your products and services. Both positive and negative feedback tend to get workers more engaged in their work.
- Emphasize the long-term role. You can’t promise anyone lifetime employment, but you should discuss in detail how the employee’s job guides your organization toward its strategic objectives. This helps workers feel less disposable and more secure in their positions.
