Changing the Rules

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

In our business environments the winds of change are always blowing, requiring that we make adjustments. King Solomon wrote that there is always “a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend” (Ecclesiastes 3:6-7 NIV). At different times, we will need to take different actions, and in taking those actions we will need to change how we do business. Part of that change will be to adjust the rules with your staff.

The most effective motivational tools will correspond to a natural drive within your employees-either monetary or non-monetary-and will generally fall into one of three categories: salary or bonus, fringe benefits, and non-monetary compensation. As King Solomon aptly observed, "A worker's appetite works for him, for his hunger urges him on" (Proverbs 16:26 NASB). The key is to understand the hunger that every worker has and apply the proper motivation to create an effective workforce.

Tracy was the best liked employee Steve had ever hired for his insurance agency. She was efficient in her work and Steve was glad he had hired her. She seemed to get along well with the rest of the staff and fit into their operation like an old pro.
