Summary of Best Practices


Creating a workplace with excellent morale and motivated employees is a long-term project, and needs to be embedded within the fabric of an organisation’s daily operations. Highly motivated and engaged personnel are a tremendous asset to any organisation. While money is an important foundational consideration, the main factors that attract and maintain “talent” within an organisation include:

  • recognition
  • having interesting work to do
  • being heard by management
  • having skilled managers
  • having good communication flows
  • being provided with opportunities for advancement.

Developing well-motivated employees leads to more satisfied customers and higher sales; this in turn leads to greater employee motivation and creates a virtuous circle. Highly motivated employees are likely to be engaged employees, willing to go the extra mile with customers, and to reward their employers with loyalty, high levels of productivity, and greater innovation.
