Some tools for motivating employees include bonuses, individual authority, training and flexible scheduling. These tools motivate employees differently, as individuals have different needs, desires and personality traits.
Companies can motivate employees by giving them the authority to make decisions and encouraging them to be innovative and creative. These external motivators allow employees to feel like part of the company and work toward achieving organizational objectives. Providing training and classes that allow employees to perform better at their jobs shows that the company believes that employees can achieve more with additional skills and information. Providing opportunities for physical exercise and child care and allowing employees to work from home can reduce stress and motivate employees to improve work results.
