Being at a job that you dislike can be devastating and decrease an employee’s motivation. A happy employee is a good employee, so it is in a company’s best interest to do everything in their power to keep them engaged and intrigued. Studies have shown that a relationship between the employee and his or her manager can greatly influence the employees engagement and motivation. However, it is not only the manager’s job to keep employee’s motivated, ultimately it is up to the employee. According to another study, “Only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work,” which presents the question, how do you keep yourself motivated at work? Here are some successful ways to initiate engagement and motivation at work.
Create and execute more short-term goals
This might sound familiar, but is important when completing tasks at work. Large projects can be intimidating, especially when you’re unsure where to begin. Instead, create smaller and shorter goals that will add up to completing a large project. This can bring the feeling of success and may give you the drive you needed to stay engaged at work.
