Reflection Paper On Being A Manager
Motivation can be anything from a physical pat on the back to a compliment that someone gives in order for a person to realize their potential and work harder. The purpose of motivating someone is too get them to either keep up the hard work or it’s too get them to work harder because they are not as productive as the manager would like them to be. According to a recent study ``55% of employees are not motivated by getting a new title if it comes with the same salary as they had before but 88% of employees say that they become much more motivated when a possible increase in salary is introduced to them as a form as motivation``. Even though money has proven to be the most successful when it comes to motivating employees there are other ways that have proved to be successful when it comes to motivating employees such as giving them things that they have hinted too previously other than an increase in salary, such as; longer hours, particular days off, a new office, or a chance to complete more challenging work to show their intelligence. If I were a manager I would definitely take what the study said into consideration because motivation is something that can lead to employees becoming more productive which can lead to overall success in the company or it can lead to things getting worse or staying the same. The situations that I think would require motivation would be if a usual hard worker is slacking, if someone is doing and amazing job and without rewarding them completely you can motivate them with kind words to keep up the work, or if you want someone to do a job that could be unfavourable or tedious. Some examples of motivation that I think would be effective in the workplace could be to help would be verbal recognition, making promises for the future, and working in the employee’s best interest.
