As individuals, we all have our own reasons for our actions and behaviors. This doesn’t mean that we lack common motivators in the workplace though. There are certain factors that generally apply to people in organizations to motivate them to work. According to Forbes, there are nine main factors that will help employees to achieve greater success in the workplace. One of these factors is trust. Employees who have a boss that trusts them and believes that they are capable of producing great work will have a lot of success in the workplace. They will be confident in the work they produce along with being employees that will take risks that can help the organization advance. Another of these factors is being given the opportunity to make an impact in the workplace. We all want to feel like we are contributing to an organization and that we have a purpose. This means that we need to be given these opportunities as often as possible to help. Another major source of motivation that goes along with this is the potential for advancement in an organization. We want to believe that if we work hard enough, we will have it ultimately pay off in the end in terms of promotions or other benefits. Lastly and most importantly, employees are motivated to work when they are happy in their profession. If someone is happy with their profession and whoever they work for, they are going to be better workers and have more of an interest in the organization having sustained success.
