Motivate your team by showing you care.
Motivate your team. We all know we need to do it, but how? Motivating employees to complete a task is the easy part; however, motivating those employees to work to the best of their abilities and guiding their efforts to the vision and values of the organization are the real challenges that companies face in today’s’ demanding global markets. For an organization to achieve its objectives in productivity, they must hire the employees that best “fit” into their organization’s beliefs and vision. Retaining human capital through job satisfaction and motivation is one of the most critical goals for any organization trying to expand its business model. This paper gives my perspective on how the relationship between human capital and the importance of job satisfaction and motivation when selecting employees relates to the lessons I’ve learned in my time as a student-athlete.
First, we must understand what retaining human capital means. The ideology behind retaining human capital is simple; companies spend time and money developing employees that they feel display competencies that will greatly benefit the company in the future. Alongside the developmental stages, companies offer incentives, benefits and perks to encourage, motivate and ultimately keep their employees satisfied in an effort to keep them engaged in their work and happy with their current role(s). It is within the company’s interests to keep their employees happy both within their career and by helping create an effective work/life balance.
