Are your employees making the grade? Do they volunteer for extra assignments and put in the effort to ensure work is done right the first time? If not, you might be dealing with a lazy staff.
Fortunately, there are ways to motivate even the laziest employees to step up to the plate. Here are some of American StaffCorp’s tips for prompting workers to do their best.
Offer the Right Incentives
If you want your employees to go above and beyond, you might need to offer them something more than their base pay. Incentives like gift cards, group lunches, and bonuses show employees you appreciate their hard work and long hours, and inspire them to continue going above and beyond.
Focus on the Individual
Instead of treating your workers like indistinguishable members of a pack, strive to communicate with them one on one. Not only do people work harder when they feel like their contributions are valued, they also do a better job when their goals are aligned with those of the organization. For best results, take time to hold one-on-one meetings with staff members at least once a quarter to ensure everyone is on the same page.
Choose the Right Staff From the Start
Of course, the best way to ensure your employees are hard workers is to hire the right people from the start. Rather than relying on your overworked HR team to handle your hiring, consider contacting a trusted recruitment firm like American StaffCorp. We locate and screen talented workers, so you can concentrate on what matters: running your company.
