Employee Motivation Day: Making the UK’s workforce feel great

Are you a manager? Are your employees in a slump? Are you a worker? Do you feel undervalued and – at times – just a little bit miserable?

As luck would have it, Argos for Business have created a day to counter all these negative feelings in the workplace. Employee Motivation Day 2016 will be taking place on Thursday 25th February, and will celebrate the efforts of the nation’s workforce and promote motivation in offices across the country.

Argos for Business have enlisted the help of three-time Olympic medallist and motivational speaker, Roger Black MBE, to promote their message. Black has provided tips for keeping employees engaged in their work; giving employees more responsibility ranks at number one on his list.

“In 1991, the British Team won a gold medal for the 4×400 metre relay team in the World Championships. In a brave move, and instead of listening to the Coach, we made the decision to change the running order the night before the race, and that decision ultimately resulted in a gold medal,” Black stated.

“By giving your team members responsibility to make decisions about what they do, you will see an increase in engagement and a greater commitment to tasks – because they have made it their own,” he continued.

Employee Motivation Day 2016 will also see the reveal of the results of the “Motivated teams” research conducted by Argos for Business, which will let you and your colleagues know how you #maketheteam. They believe that there are eight main types of worker: Big Idea Bods, Go-getting Gregarians, Observant Operators, Captain Questions, Independent Introverts, Confident Creatives, Logical Leaders, and People Oriented Performers. See how you #maketheteam via their interactive online quiz, which will be released on the day.

The Panoptic Media Marketing team are supporting Employee Motivation Day 2016 because we appreciate and believe in all of our employees. We believe that acknowledging our team’s hard work keeps our employees happy – and happy employees achieve better results and higher quality work, ultimately resulting in higher customer satisfaction.

If you want better results for your team, get involved in Employee Motivation Day 2016 by downloading the resource pack from www.employeemotivationday.co.uk, or by visiting the dedicated Facebook and Twitter pages and using the hashtags #EmployeeMotivationDay, #EMD, #MakeTheTeam and #NatMotivateDay.

Employee Motivation Day: Top tips to keep your team motivated

25 February 2016 is Employee Motivation Day in the UK. Founded by Argos for Business, the event has been set up to put motivation at the top of the list for business thinking by inspiring passion and appreciation across the country’s workforce.

Are you a manager? Have your employees been feeling demotivated at work? Wish you could do something about it? Well, here are some top tips to help build their motivation.

 

  1. Set clear goals

Set goals for your team that are based on a clear collective vision that will inspire your team. Make sure you set realistic targets so that the goals are achievable; if the goal isn’t in sight, many employees will lose focus.

 

  1. Make training available

Offer training to your employees and help them to realise their goals. By giving them the education they need, you can help craft an innate desire to improve and drive success.

 

  1. Work smart, not hard

Just because an employee stays late every day doesn’t mean they have produced quality work. Without regular breaks, will they be performing to the best of their ability? Encourage your team to step away from their desks every so often to keep their work to the highest standards.

 

  1. Listen to your team

Make time and space to listen to your employees. They may feel that they are not in the right role, and by letting them use their talents they will feel a lot happier and begin to take pride in their work. Use your position to help bring out the best in others. Work with each employee to create their own personal development plan.

 

  1. Give your team members more responsibility

If you give your team members the responsibility to make decisions, you will see an increase in engagement and a greater commitment to tasks. Let them take ownership over certain projects and the results may just surprise you.

 

  1. Thank them regularly

Make sure you take the time to thank your employees when they do something well, but don’t wait until you are halfway out the door. Go out of your way to thank them whilst you’re still in the office; don’t let them think they are an afterthought. Keep your praise genuine though – a disingenuous pat on the back won’t make either of you feel good.

 

  1. Promote creativity

Many businesses have set processes and procedures that are efficient, but stifle the creativity of their workers. Ask your employees about company policies that don’t work well and work to eliminate or modify them. If you are sincere in this, energy will flow and employee engagement will be boosted.

 

  1. Money isn’t everything

Don’t use money as the sole motivator for your team. Think outside the box and come up with innovative, fun ways to incentivise your staff and create a sense of belonging. Reward exceptional performance with time off; offer parking spaces if parking is tight; organize cake days; serve them breakfast… The possibilities are endless.

 

  1. Organise team building workshops

Get your team to have face-to-face contact more regularly instead of just via email. Let your team spend some time together outside the office to promote inter-departmental co-operation.

 

  1. Be the best boss you can be

You can’t teach someone to play the piano unless you’re already pretty good at it yourself. Work on yourself first, and constantly. Just because you’re their manager, this is no excuse for you to relax and let yourself be carried on the shoulders of their hard work. Become your team’s source of inspiration. If you’re motivated, then they will be too.
