Posted on 05/26/20 By Brittany K. King


Picture this: you're an employee at a mid-sized organization. Your boss keeps giving you more responsibilities because they know you are a hard worker. The extra work doesn't bother you at first, but your company's leadership team consistently fails to recognize your achievements and rarely provides structure or direction for your projects.

The longer this cycle continues, the less motivated you will feel in the workplace.

As an employee, it's easy to see the value of office motivation. Unfortunately, employers and company leadership often overlook the importance of motivating their staff.

  • Fuel innovation
  • Retain employees
  • Increase productivity
