How to Keep Staff Motivated Without Having To Manage Them – Tips from SIPL

Manage Them – Tips from SIPL

Many organizations tell that they want to get closer to their staff to motivate them and keep them enthusiastic in their jobs, but they lack the social skills to determine how best to do it.

Some express the concern that they feel isolated from their teams, even though they might actually be working in the same office.

So, what’s the best way to enthuse and motivate staff, without giving the impression you’re micromanaging them, or running the risk of ‘looking over their shoulder’?

The old method of ‘managing by walking about’ has been tried by many, but there can be that awkward feeling that you’re interfering with your staff’s work, or the fear that they think you’re continually checking up on them. How can you carry this out without making it appear overbearing?

Here are some tips:

  • Build trust and understanding with your staff first. If you start trying to get closer to them without doing this first, they’ll wonder what you’re up to. Make it a natural progressive step by discussing work schedules, identifying goals and building trust first.
  • Listen more than talk. Identify what’s on their minds and let them open up to you. Don’t be judgmental in any way, or they’ll not trust you and certainly won’t open up.
  • Look for examples of good work. The old saying ‘catch someone doing something right’ is a good adage here. Try to find something good to say without being patronising. They’ll see through you if you imply you’re happy they arrived at work on time! Find something specific and thank them for the good effort.
  • On the other hand, if you see they are struggling with some area, or the quality of work isn’t up to the standard you were expecting, discuss what needs to be done to assist them in developing the skill or eliminating the poor performance.
  • Watch how they react with other team members. If you see they are happy and productive when with their teammates, but calm up and go silent when you turn up, that should be sending you specific messages. Don’t try to be ‘friends’ with them, if that’s not your natural style. Be friendly-professional and you’ll find they start being more relaxed in your company.
  • Find out what personally motivates them. In your ‘walking about’ sessions, you can discuss what actually drives them and what makes them tick. As you listen to their concerns, you’ll notice specific areas crop up more than others. Does the person need more attention from you? Is their work being recognised? Have they got a personal development plan lined up so they can see how they can progress in the department or company? Each person will be motivated differently from their colleagues, so match the discussion to the driver.

Managing by walking around is a great opportunity for you to keep up-to-date with people’s challenges, concerns, abilities, learning needs and strengths. Use these times to encourage your team to develop and communicate effectively as you improve the service you offer to your customers.

Importance of UI/UX in Mobile App Development by Supertron Infotech Pvt Ltd.

In today’s competitive scenario, UI/UX of software, mobile app or a website is as important as its functionality. No matter how useful the features are, but if it is not user friendly, it won’t be successful. UI/UX increases user satisfaction as well as the conversions, and above all it ensure success of the application being developed. The user interface is the key that make users engaged with your business. The more complicated the business logic of your website or web application, the greater the need for a functional user interface.

The UI component of a mobile application enhances the overall look and feel of the app, majorly determining how the application is presented to its users. On the other hand, a good UX largely determines the impact and ease of application usability for its customers. Maintaining an effective user experience results in increased trust and user satisfaction towards the brand. UX routinely improves the applicability and effectiveness of the application through continuous research regarding the target market, industry, user’s need and many other crucial factors.

For any application to be successful in the real world, the company needs to provide the end-users with an engaging and efficient User Friendly Experience. It lets the organization achieve better business goals by building a diligent brand name, improving its reputation, and generating increased user traffic and business revenues. A good user experience is a win-win situation for both sides of the business flow. Below few reasons why we should give importance to UI/UX :

·      Customer Attraction & Acquisition

Successful user experience and design provides a competitive advantage. They will likely overtake price as key brand differentiators that attract new users. Great enterprise UI/UX is more than just effective product design – it’s good business.

·      Customer Retention

By building an application that’s beautiful and intuitive, more people will want to use it, and more importantly continue using it. In this digital world, customer retention is increasingly important as competition grows with every technological advancement.

·      Decreasing Support Cost

If an application is not designed properly, there will be an increased need for training, documentation, and support later, which translates into higher costs. An app that is intuitive and easy to use puts less stress on both employees and the bottom line.

·      Increased Productivity

Better user experience leads to productivity improvements. When you consider the increased productivity over the number of users and hours of day each user is active, the financial impact is readily apparent – and substantial.

With rapid change in technology, it is becoming important for companies to embrace UI/UX design – not as a one-time event, but as a continuous practice of a long-term business strategy.
