Job satisfaction is not the same as engagement. Many common steps taken by leaders to motivate employees, e.g. pay rises and enhanced benefits, are actually not motivational, but merely transactional factors that can be easily replicated – by employees leaving to go and work elsewhere.
To create the most favourable conditions for motivation to grow and thrive in a workplace environment it is necessary to diagnose underlying issues right down to the individual level. Through innovation, understanding, and leading by example, leaders can create the optimum conditions for high levels of employee engagement.
However, whilst leaders can strive to put everything in place for an engaged, motivated culture, the final step – motivation itself – must come from within individual employees.
