Business ebbs and flows and those cycles are completely normal. But what happens when you’re going through a more than minor difficult time at work? Is your staff dedicated to staying the course and helping your business succeed or are they abandoning ship? It is important that you keep morale high and engage your staff so they stick around during the hard times. Here are five ways you can motivate your team.
Communicate with them at all times.
Keeping your team in the dark is the best way to drive them away from your company. They need to know what is happening and how you are working together to solve it. Share the financial information, customer information, and anything else that can help them stay informed about the business.
Encourage creative innovation from your staff.
Creativity has managed to dig a lot of companies out of a tough spot. The solution to your problems may be something you don’t even know exists yet. You hired great and talented people so use their skills and minds to get your company back on track. Give them an opportunity to develop something that could take your company to the next level.
Celebrate all victories.
When things are going wrong there can be no better motivator than to celebrate what is going right. Reward good work, honor accomplishments, and provide encouragement to keep things moving forward.
Keep the workplace stress free.
This may be easier said than done because when a company is struggling the stress is often palpable. But, it is important that you do what you can to keep things as stress free as possible. That doesn’t mean you don’t have a sense of urgency surrounding your mission, but don’t make it a health issue too.
Strengthen relationships in the office.
Loyal employees are always more likely to stick around when times are tough than job hoppers. Take this time to strengthen the relationships with your most important team members. Make sure they know they are valued.
