What Motivates Me?
In any organization, I work best when managers and co-workers see my worth and value what I contribute. When I do something outstanding or achieve a tough task, being recognized is very important to me. It is not always that rewards are solely monetary, but verbally supporting what I achieved boosts my work ethic and attitude towards my work and future tasks. Written appraisals motivate me so much and I remember 1 organization I worked for which appraised their entire staff annually. You will find that the departments were always meeting targets and going beyond given tasks. That act of recognition outweighed the monetary part as this gave me a spirit and attitude of ownership of my company. Lastly, openness as regards to the company performance motivates me to do more for my company. Whether we made a profit or loss, the fact that it was communicated to members of staff like me makes me feel important and part and parcel of what is going on in the business.
