The link between wages and motivation
Nothing is truer than the quote :” all work deserve salary”, and no one can deny it, work quality and salary average are linked. The salary is the key point in the relation between employer and employees.
Despite a sensitive subject, it is important to think and consider bonus for your associates and employees.
For your employees or your manager, they all have a precise idea of what they want. Your employees will have salary expectations, they would like to have a salary equal to the added value they think they bring to the company. While managers, will expect from the employees to be motivated and determinated.
A manager must know how to motivate its employee. As we said before, salary is a good motivation tools, but not on the long run…Give bonus to your employees, they will be happy, two or three weeks and then, the real problems will come back.
Indeed, salary is important but it is not defined all the face of the behavior during work. Schedules, relationships between colleagues and managers, or even communication are important determinants of motivation and work quality.
Therefore, it is sometimes better to invest time rather than money. Try to understand the problem and to solve it, ask questions, focus on details of behavior that usually seems harmless and especially listen!
There are many reasons why an employee may feel demotivated or uncomfortable in the business. Besides, most frequently it is about undervaluation, he needs more responsibility, if he feels aside or he feels like sacrificing his family life, and of course, he encounters financial difficulties.
On the one hand, salary has very little connection with motivation, and work quality provided by employee. On the other hand, you must be able to listen and meet needs that are less costly but equally important.
