It is important for managers to utilize their team in the most effective way possible which often means motivating each employee towards a common business goal. This can be difficult when dealing with many personality types. First, it helps to nurture an employee’s purpose in the workplace in an attempt to align it to business goals. Second, as part of an employee management strategy it helps to set individual goals for an employee to foster their growth. Third, with purpose and goals established provided consistent and meaningful feedback in relation to an overall goal can reap huge employee development.
- Employees are far more motivated when they perceive how their work affects the company as a whole.
- in fact, when employees see that their business self and their personal self are on the same page goal-wise, they are apt to be 3 to 5 times more engaged in the process.
- When managers take a collaborative and mentoring role in goal-creation, employers tend to appreciate the investment.
“Businesses are facing a dilemma when it comes to goals: according to Gallup, employee productivity increases by 56 percent when managers are involved in helping their reports align their goals with the needs of the organization.”
