Thinking on motivation is moving…

Paul Beesley : December 19, 2013 2:45 pm : Blog, Employee Engagement

We now need to engage our people for business success

 

Read our latest guest blog on how motivating people is changing. The old traditional methods of work harder and pay more no longer hold true in today’s economy where employees are employed to think and problem solve.

Our guest blog on The Big Trophy Shop‘s own website outlines the case to rewarding people in different ways to recognise the individual and team skills that today’s employees provide.

When did you last experience a flash of innovation at work? Have a quick think…

Now read the following story.

A utilities company employs mainly blue collar workers. These are people that do the heavy lifting, digging holes etc. – all the manual work that is necessary to provide the infrastructure we expect in today’s society. This work can be dangerous. Cutting through a high voltage electrical cable can be fatal. A worker identified and suggested that by adding a rubber strip at the end of his spade could potentially save lives – including his own.

The idea was acknowledged by his manager and was quickly adopted. The worker received company-wide recognition. More innovative suggestions from others have followed.
