You may have seen this short video, but have your staff? Motivation is one of those constant issues with employees, just like ‘productivity’ and ‘wage costs’. You want to motivate them, and get your managers and head chefs to help with the process. And hopefully you’ve employed people who are self-motivated?
But what is motivation?
This short animated video from Dan Pink is an excellent starting point for a discussion with managers, or with all your team. Stop it several times and ask for feedback, then seek comparisons with places that people have previously worked and the current workplace. In what areas is motivation lacking, and what are some quick changes that could be made to improve it? 10-minute videos like these can be a powerful part of a staff meeting or coaching session – they get everyone thinking outside the daily issues.
