Nowadays we face a highly competitive market in most areas. That’s why it is so important to work towards perfection in order to make “the difference”, to be different. When choosing a provider (and not only for web development but for any other service) besides price and quality which are aspects that anyone can provide you also look for a good experience and added value.
The experience you provide to your customers during the entire process of building a project is what I believe makes you better.
People are the key to an excellent and unique experience as every person is unique. That’s why it so important to have your team highly motivated.
These are some tips that can help you build a happy proactive team:
- Be motivated. You can’t motivate people if you are not happy with what you are doing.
- Create a Positive Work Environment. Encourage teamwork, listen to everyone’s ideas and most important trust your team members. Having fun is also a great way to manage stress Happy employees are enthusiastic and positive members of the team, and their attitude is infectious.
- Provide a pleasant place to work. Everyone wants to work in an office environment that is clean and stimulating, and that makes them feel good.
- Allow personal and professional growth. Note the things that interest your team members and try to give them every opportunity to pursue those activities. Provide your team with the training they need to advance in their careers and to become knowledgeable about the latest technologies and industry news.
- Set achievable goals. Establish both professional and daily objectives. This gives employees something to strive for, and also benefits your company when goals are tied to your company objectives. Make sure goals are reasonable and achievable so employees don’t get discouraged.
- Recognize achieved goals and be sure to personalize the reward. It is always important to know what motivates each member of your team. Whether one employee may think that getting an extra day to explore a city on a business trip is a huge plus, another may value getting home earlier each evening to her children.
- Give the Right Tasks to the Right People. People do best at the work that they enjoy doing. Be sensitive to the skills and interests of your employees as you assign them to jobs. Try to put people in jobs that suit them.
- Share all the project information. By sharing all the information you have, even any issue that may come up, you make the team be a part of the project, you make them feel the project as their own. This way they will be more compromised and will provide ideas to make it better.
People are the main and the most important resource of a company. When you combine the energy, knowledge, and skills of a motivated group of people, then you and your team can accomplish anything you set your minds to.
