The hype of work-from-home has been going around the world even more ever since the pandemic took over. Now that the pandemic wave is slowing down, it still remains uncertain as to whether remote working will be finished immediately or will remain in effect to be on the safe side.
It is human psychology that if one's work gets appreciated, they are more likely to work harder and better. Without an appreciation for their work, employees get disheartened and their confidence also gets shattered. Ultimately, some employees would even resign if they find a better job and much more motivational environment somewhere else.
So you have to make sure your employees stay motivated. But how to do that? It's simple. First of all, you must start by changing your mental process. Think of the pressures the pandemic has put on your business, then think the same for your employees. They're likely to be as much worried as you are. A little bit of empathy can be a massive win for both the employer and their employees.
But empathy over the keyboard can be hard to show. Thanks to technology, there's no need to fret about it. You can talk to your employees over a video call. If not solo, then you can arrange group meetings to reassure them and the hard work they are putting in in spite of these hard times. In such meetings, you can discuss all the issues they might be facing. The infographic below will further guide you on how to motivate your remote workers.
