Motivation of the staff of any organization is difficult. The motivation depends on various factors like the amount of salary the employee is earning and other such factors. Though the salary and monetary benefits are very important for increasing the motivation of the employee in an organization, they are not the only methods that can be used. In fact monetary benefits and compensation are not the best methods of motivating the employees in an organization as widely considered.

This is because any variation between employees in the monetary compensation can lead to ill will between the various cadres and can in turn lead to demotivation. This said, the compensation package should be fair to all the staff. It should be the best in the industry to retain the employees. Once it is done, the management or the owner of the company should look at other important methods of motivating the staff.

The various methods of motivating the staff other than the monetary compensation are:

1. Communicate:
Lack of communication on daily happenings in the organization can cause demotivation in the employees. If proper communication channels are maintained, then the employees will feel that they are an integral part of the organization. This will make them feel better and motivate them to work better.

2. Assessment: Each employer should objectively assess the role of the employee in the organization. The employer should not form an opinion of the employee without proper knowledge of their work habits. Proper assessment methods of the employees will increase the motivation of the staff because they can be sure that if they work hard, then they will be identified as a good worker and probably be rewarded.

3. Appreciation: A word of encouragement will go a long way in motivating the employees in an organization. Employers should make use of this when trying to motivate the staff working under them. When the employer finds that a staff has been working hard and doing things beyond the call of duty, then the employee or worker should be appreciated.

4. Responsibilities: Delegating the work to employees who are good in their job will act as a reward and further motivate them to do better. Increased responsibilities will also make the employee try to achieve more. It will make them aim higher and thus improve the organization.

5. Mistakes: It is human to err and the employer should understand this. Any employee can make mistake at any point of their work. The employer should understand that this could not have been intentional. The employee should be given a chance to resolve the mistake and also to try to become better. This will help the employee (if they are good ones) to become better and also to try harder to remove the blot on their work.

6. Facilities: Though compensation package plays a role in the motivation level of a worker to increase, the facilities in the organization will also help in motivating the individual to work harder.

These are the various methods of motivating the staff of an organization.
