A recent study by corporate training firm Dale Carnegie Training revealed that less than one quarter of non-management employees is fully engaged in their work. That’s a lot of employees feeling unmotivated.

According to Forbes, the most effective way to increase motivation in an employee is to have direct engagement from company management, meaning this is an area that needs vast improvement.

There are five ways in which management can motivate staff.

1. Give all members of staff, no matter their level, the opportunity to benefit when a company prospers. Giving staff an incentive to perform well will increase productivity.

2. Show your staff that you care about their future career. Offer mentoring, seminars and additional training and take an interest in their future goals within the company.

3. Be sensitive to family commitments and personal appointments such as doctors’ appointments, even if it doesn’t directly affect their work-life. Giving some leeway will improve your relationship and the staff level of loyalty.

4. Listen to ideas that could benefit the company, no matter whom they come from.

5. Treat your staff how you would like to be treated yourself. Don’t have one rule for yourself and another for lower level staff.
