I would argue that majority of employees would choose to be appreciated and valued rather than receive extra financial rewards. Employers can guarantee job satisfaction and growth within the business if they provide hard working employees with the feeling of being part of a team. Many managers and bosses neglect to do the simple things that will keep employees eager to continue working for them and working hard.
Employees should try to always have a clear vision of where the business is going (short term and long) and communicate that vision throughout the work place so everyone is on the same page. This gives people the confidence to work freely towards team goals without being left confused about which direction to go.
To help employees succeed, bosses should set their workers up with all the tools they need to succeed! Don't assume they are already equip with the knowledge or support.
This brings me to what I would say, the most important part of team building - communication! Employers should communicate well and often ! Regular meetings to brain storm and pass around ideas is a great way to keep employees striving for goals and focused on the vision.
Keep employees feeling confident they are doing well and keep them engaged. Keep up the communication!
