Metrics for Employee Motivation

In an increasingly varied and competitive world, companies and organizations of all types are looking for ways to improve employee motivation. But what exactly does that mean, and how do you do it?

People like to know where they stand in terms of performance. That means having clear goals and showing progress to those goals with key performance indicators (KPIs) and other data that is accurate, frequently updated and easy to understand. That’s one reason that data visualization is such an important part of employee motivation. If you can let people know at a glance what they’ve accomplished and how far they have to go, they’ll be energized and encouraged to move forward.

You have digital signs in hallways, at elevator banks, in break rooms – everywhere your employees go. They’ve already become used to looking at your screens for announcements and information, so take advantage of that and display some information that will motivate them to get more engaged with your organization.
