Motivating employees is always important. But how can you do this during economically challenging times?
When business results are not promising, emotions such as fear or anxiety, can significantly impact the employee performance. That’s why giving confidence to the team is more than important in these times.
Therefore, keep communicating to your team. You can never communicate too much, especially during uncertain times. Sharing information will increase your employees understanding of what’s going on in the company and in the industry. This is essential to ensure engagement and to align the team’s efforts and performance with the ‘new’ goals of the organization.
In addition, stay positive and accessible at all times, the attitude of managers has a major impact on employees. By setting the right example, your employees are more likely to act the same.
