This week we talked about motivation. I thought of some really great ideas to motivate employees and learned about some other ways I hadn’t previously thought about from my classmates and from the lecture. In doing the discussion, I reflective on the types of things that motivate me as an employee, and I realized that money isn’t nearly as big of a factor as I thought it might be. Obviously I wouldn’t be against getting more money, but it’s more important to me to have a job that I like doing and to to feel like I am respected and appreciated by my co workers and by management. I realized that even just little things like a card saying you did well or a good job from one of your co workers can be a big motivator and increase overall job satisfaction.
