How to Learn What Motivates Employees and Increase Your Bottom Line

by Tom Borg All rights reserved.

Many times my clients ask me to teach them what motivates employees. So I put together some thoughts and came up with  a strategy using a survey.

Here is a simple questionnaire that will help you identify what really motivates your employees. Once you have had your employees complete the questionnaire, sit down and go over it with them. Clarify what it is they mean by the areas they prioritized as being most important.what motivates employees
