Did you not think employee morale can have a direct impact on your bottom line, have you? But believe it or not under-whelmed staff can cost your business big time. Consider it this way, high absenteeism, low productivity, lessened loyalty and high turnover – all these are signs that staff morale is low. These are also the very symptoms that impede your business from performing optimally.
While sport teams need cheerleaders to win, you as a small business have to take the role of motivating employees seriously. According to recent studies, money is not what matters most to employees these days; rather “interesting work” was marked as their top priority. This is closely followed by receiving proper recognition for a job well done, getting due appreciation and a feeling of being “in on things.”
Boosting employee morale
Employee morale can sometime plummets below the desired levels due to various personal and professional reasons. There are many ways to increase the depreciating morale of your employees. However, it is beyond the means of the executives or the owner as they might also be struggling with their own shortcomings. This is where a motivational speaker can be of great benefit.
A motivational speaker can boost the morale of your staff through a very empowering and inspiring talk. This is not just any talk you commonly hear in symposia or seminars but rather an inspiring speech that aims to uplift the sagging morale of your employees by drawing personal life experiences that mitigate the idea that they too can overcome their obstacles and bring themselves to new heights.
However, be sure to hire a speaker who has been in the speaking industry for years. He must have the experience and expertise to drive your staff to the right path as well as to jumpstart their engines to success.
In choosing a speaker check for the following characteristics:
Has the “client brief Relevant” content and topics
Has the ability to capture the audience
Has the astute awareness of deligate usability to match your brief
These areyour ‘threeminimum speaking requirements’ you need to be aware of to maximise the opportunity of the talk. Choose a speaker who cantakeyour audience on an unexpected andchallenging adventure into their perceptions, beliefs and attitudes.
Make the huge opportunity to transform your staff and more importantly to inspire and motivate them to ‘take action’ to reach your goals.
