  • Motivating your employees in a time of change - Checklist 068

    £1.99

    Purchase this checklistIn today's difficult and competitive environment, it is important for organisations to motivate employees to use all their talents and make a full work contribution.  Yet, in spite of the many theories and practical examples available to draw on, motivation is still often viewed as something of a mystery, for which there is no ready solution.  In part, this is because different individuals are motivated by different things and in different ways.  But it is also because, in times of rapid change or economic difficulty, staff morale tends to lower dramatically, due to the uncertainty and job insecurity that change can bring.
