Sometimes, it's easiest to learn a concept through visualization. Take employee motivation for example. There isn't a solid, clear-cut definition of it out there. Often times, it involves trial-and-error practices and personalization in order to be successful. But, to aid in our understanding, IncBlot has created the following infographic. It explains the theory and ideas behind motivation, the motivation equation in the workforce, action steps, questions to consider and useful statistics.
Some notable takeaways:
- 30% of executives say that motivating their employees is their toughest job
- "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." - Zig Zigler
- Action Step: Ask a team member what non-monetary rewards they might find motivational.
- The average American employee wastes 2 hours and 5 minutes of an 8 hour day
