What Motivates You As An Employee?

"Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things. ~ Denis Diderot"

As I read the above quote, I was reminded of the time back when I was still in the workforce, being so passionate with what I'm doing, working hard and giving my best in whatever tasks assigned to me.

In my opinion, an employee wants to feel appreciated and have a sense of belonging in order to be motivated and work harder in a company.

I still remember back when I was working in a multinational bank in 2007, that was the first time I learned that the bank I worked for carries out a lot of approaches in order to be engaged with its employees. The purpose of doing so is to get the employees' feedback so that the company can try their best to accommodate and satisfy its employees. One of the approaches carried out by the bank is the Employee Survey scheme which was done annually.

Each and every employee of the bank will be given a time off to fill up their feedback anonymously in the survey form and these feedback will be compiled and processed by the Human Resource Department and recommendations will then be suggested and implemented by the bank if they realised it is for the good of all parties.

I feel that it is good for a company to do so as not only they get to have its employees' feedback of the company and their satisfaction or dissatisfaction of their workplace and/or workload, the employees also feel appreciated and happy that their employer cares for them and wants to make their workplace a better and happy environment to work in.

If you are working, what motivates you as an employee?

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

During my 1st job, my employer was really very serious about this. We also took our Employee Survey but it was done more than 1 time per year. (can't rmb)

Everyone is very highly motivated bcoz there's alot of annual events going on to motivate employee even the operators. Everyone in the company is always close and cheerful. The events make us close just like a family.. and we're still in touch up till today. Laughing BTW the company closed down
