Keep your employees motivated

Harvard Business School has done some research on this subject and has some great tips for keeping people motivated.
  • The great majority of employees are quite enthusiastic when they start a new job. But in about 85 percent of companies, our research finds, employees’ morale sharply declines after their first six months—and continues to deteriorate for years afterward. That finding is based on surveys of about 1.2 million employees at 52 primarily Fortune 1000 companies from 2001 through 2004, conducted by Sirota Survey Intelligence (Purchase, New York).

This is a tough area, but through proper leadership and by providing employees some motivation and incentive for their work all this can lead to great results.
