Publicly acknowledging your employees for the great work done by either posting it on a public news-feed or bulletin board with some sort of reward that can range from a special parking space to something as small as providing a few points on a recognition platform are great ways to motivate people into action. All of these options go from free to maybe costing you 10$ for the recognition and are great ways of motivating people.
Beyond publicly recognizing effort digitally or on bulletin boards, taking the employee aside for lunch as a thank you for a job well done is a great way of both motivating them to continually go above and beyond, and it will also give you the chance of asking questions of your employees to discover how they think the company could be improved. Moreover, it will allow you to get to know your employees on a more personal level.
Offering and/or paying for employees to take classes and seminars will not only teach them new skills to better do their jobs, but it will create even better employees to give back, and move up within your organization. Supporting their drive and ambition are great ways to create the kind of loyalty among your employees that every business wants to cultivate.
Along with identifying the employees who do great work around the workplace, taking them aside and thanking them personally with a handshake, a handwritten note from someone in upper management or a leadership position is a tangible reward that they will also associate with the workplace and increase loyalty.
