Motivation and You


Motivation is the responsibility of all supervisors. The most valuable asset of an organisation is people. People have needs that must be met in the workplace. The supervisor energizes, leads, guides and motivates the employee. They show the employees how to fulfill their needs while accomplishing the goals of the organisation. Motivated and growth oriented employees are happy, committed and productive. Remember that each person has different needs and must be motivated in a slightly different manner.

Although this booklet has been written for supervisors at large, all staff can use this as a guide to motivate either their peers or counter-parties. As you may have realized that motivation is about communication, working enthusiastically together, cultivating common goals, knowing one another, helping one another to do a better and more meaningful job. It is about creating a workplace where we enjoy being because it gives meaning, support, direction and opportunities for growth.

Through motivation, we seek to secure staff commitment ; develop and manage them to give of their best to support departmental aims and objectives; and achieve the ultimate aim of serving the community better by providing quality service which our community deserves.
