 Boost The Performance of Your Staff Using 5 Low-cost Tips

Human relations experts have revealed that small time business owners need to try other ways to engage their staff and get them working to their full potential. Such owners are unlikely to have the budget for giving substantial pay rises or cash bonuses.

The Australian survey, which revealed that 40 percent of people were thinking of leaving their job, found other factors that influenced staff motivation included how good a fit they are for their job, their career path and flexible work practices.

Reed has also given five low-cost tips on how to motivate staff, Stuff.co.nz reported.

Secondly, everybody loves to be told they've done a good job - it makes people feel good and boosts morale.

Thirdly, small to medium businesses usually won't have the scope to reward ambitious and well-performing staff with promotions.

Lastly, employees want to know that the work they're doing is contributing to the success of the company.
