Keeping Staff Motivated.

If you work in an office or any other busy working environment really, you probably know just how hard it can be to make sure that your staff stay on task at times. For this reason, it's important to think about how you keep them motivated.

I often bring things like coffees and cakes into the office because I feel that it adds to the atmosphere and makes people work to a much higher standard for me. However I know that other people probably use other ways and means to get their staff to do what they want. Which boat are you in? Bribery (which I suppose is what I am doing) or do you try something else altogether?

Our working environment is quite motivational anyway to be honest with you, because the kids come in all full of energy and ready to learn, and it's just brilliant. I do also set little challenges for tutors - exam grades to aim for, putting certain songs into concert listings etc, it's all in good fun. But our job is so rewarding that we don't often have any issues with motivation at all.

We have lots of different jobs during the day, and no two days are ever the same, so you will find that staff don't really lose focus for this reason. We do have little bonus schemes and games, but to be honest I get on well with the lads who work for me and I think that the friendly environment can help a heck of a lot.
