Employee motivation has become a growing concern in recent years for companies who have noticed that a motivated employee works more efficiently, is more creative, and does not leave the company at the first pay offer.
Former US President Dwight Eisenhower defined motivation as the art of making a person do what you want because he wants to do the job himself. Beyond memorable quotes, motivation is among the most important aspects when it comes to the professional life of any person, and in their absence they lose the employee and the employer alike.
At the same time, many studies have shown that motivation goes hand in hand with productivity, motivated employees are more efficient, work better with the team and have better results. Employees who have strong motivations feel that the effort they make every day at work is not just for the company but for themselves as well, they feel they are important and cherished within the organization and they succeed in their efforts to help teams, departments and entire companies evolve.
Employee motivation involves a continuous effort and should be the primary focus of the human resources department as it implies, besides a satisfying income, a well-thought-out strategy both at the collective level and at the individual level
