Quick ways to motivate your employees

Motivation: an idea meaning the general desire to act or accomplish something; an effort to attain a goal. It may seem simple enough, but the idea invariably ends up being an elusive mythical creature at times.

If your search for Big Foot has left you empty handed, here are some helpful hints for motivating your members:

  • Recognition – Give praise to get results! By recognizing a member’s achievements, you can positively influence future behavior. Tell them why they’re being recognized and be genuine about it (nothing’s worse than saying ‘Great Job!’ with a straight face and monotone voice.) Also, give credit where credit is due! Members will always appreciate when a manager takes the time to thank them for their hard work.
  • Rewards – Everyone loves prizes or rewards for a job well done, and while additional compensation based on merit can be a well-received incentive, sometimes no cost is needed at all. Our HON Customer Support team gives out a monthly member-nominated “Golden Caster” award. Though spray painted, the Golden Casters are truly worth their weight in gold. When you visit us here in Muscatine, make sure to keep an eye out for one!
  • Responsibility – Increasing opportunities and expanding a member’s role can increase. Keep members excited by offering new training or project options. Encourage members to take ownership of new tasks or projects. Give them a boost (and help your department’s productivity) by specifying opportunities that play to their strengths. A member who enjoys coming to work is a valuable investment.

The key is finding the right combination to unlock your members’ potential. Motivation doesn’t have to be elusive. After all, the Loch Ness Monster has been motivating people to find him for years!

What motivates you in the office? How do you motivate your coworkers and fellow members?

HON’s Coordinate Standing Height Bases have turned the corner! Along with the existing 2-leg/3-stage model, you can now select a 3-leg/3-stage model that can be used in L-shaped configurations. Supporting the increasing popularity of sit-to-stand workstations, Coordinate Height Adjustable Bases deliver a healthier style of working by allowing a seamless transition between sitting and standing throughout the day.

Aptly named, Coordinate Height Adjustable Bases were designed to coordinate with a vast array of HON product lines. Not only does Coordinate feature a simple, 3-stage design that can be integrated into almost any existing space – from open plan workstations to private offices and collaborative areas   but it also offers the perfect solution for new office spaces, where the need for more flexible furniture solutions are on the rise. With adjustable height options ranging from 25 1/2″-51 1/2″ and an optional memory control that allows the user/s to select from one of four preset levels, Coordinate makes it easy to meet individual preferences and encourages a healthier approach to the workday.

NEW! Coordinate 3-Leg Height Adjustable Base

The option to stand throughout the day allows for increased movement, which not only improves circulation and posture but can also have a positive impact on employee motivation and focus. Combat midday fatigue when you work at the standing height setting, and alleviate unwanted tension or strain on the legs and feet when you switch to the seated height position. When workers feel comfortable and have control over their work area, they can experience decreased workplace stress and improved work performance and overall wellbeing.
