People are the lifeblood of every business in the world – from the founder who comes up with the initial idea to the support staff who do the groundwork, a business simply cannot operate without people. As a result, a business needs to take care of them, from ensuring their working conditions are pleasant to assisting them with any problems they might encounter in day to day life.
At Champions Motivational Speakers we know how important it is to make your workplace a great place for your employees, but we realise it can be difficult at times, so we have compiled a list of reasons why a motivational speaker is a worthy investment for your business:
1 – Improve employee motivation & morale
Running a business is about striking the balance between the bottom line (profit, success and staying afloat) and having a workplace which is good for employees. Unfortunately, sacrifices will sometimes have to be made on the latter – for example, tightening of rules, laying off of employees or having to assign more work to people – which can impact negatively on motivation and morale. It could even be something as simple as lack of variety at work. As a result, hiring a motivational speaker to give employees a boost and put things into perspective can make it a better place to work for everyone.
2 – Improve manager skills and efficiency
Managers not only have their own workload and targets, but have to manage people effectively and efficiently, which is much easier said than done. A motivational speaker would give a company’s managers advice on how to strike the perfect balance between firm, fair and friendly, by making distinctions between a boss, who simply dictates and barks orders, and a bona fide manager, who leads by example, understands his employees’ feelings, and gets the best out of them – and how to achieve this.
3 – Instil better habits into workforce
It is easy to get stuck in a rut at work in terms of habits, from the ones directly related to work, such as job processes, to ones linked to the workplace, such as recycling and using energy. Even personal habits, such as smoking or eating bad food, can have an impact on an individual’s work performance. A motivational speaker can help the workforce think outside of their habit box, refocus and replace the physical and mental infrastructure to reshape their habits into something much more efficient, effective and beneficial.
4 – Improve work-life balance
There is an old adage that says “leave your troubles at the door” – if you have personal problems, you forget about them as soon as you enter the workplace and only resume thinking about them when you clock off. Of course, it’s not as easy as the quote makes it out to be – your mind will not be thinking straight and it will impact on your work performance. Likewise, if you work too hard and rest too little, it will take its toll on you. Hire a motivational speaker and let them make the necessary tweaks in your life to improve your work-life balance.
