How to Improve Employee Retention: Motivation is Not Enough

Bonuses, holiday days, office parties, and flexible working are many of the tools in a business owner’s arsenal revolve around rewarding employees for a job well done and motivating them to produce similarly stunning results in the future. But surely the leaders who dole out these types of perks are only focusing on half of the picture.

There are “two issues generally going on with employees at any given time: there are ‘shoves,’ things that demotivate people, and then there are ‘tugs,’ the things that motivate you, that tug at you to stay at the organisation,”. While these factors will differ for every employee, leaders often make the mistake of focusing on the motivators without adequately considering what rubs people the wrong way.
