At Technalink, we use positive reinforcement to create a more positive workplace atmosphere. This type of reinforcement gives employees motivation, helps to strengthen deeper connections, and works to boost the overall employee morale. So, with all of these benefits, how do you bring positive reinforcement into your place of business? Implementing positive reinforcement is simple, and we want to lay out a few ideas on how you can make it a part of your office:
- Compliments – Although it may sound simple, compliments can go a very long way. Employees who have worked hard to bring about a great performance are employees that deserve to hear how much you appreciate what they’ve done, and this form of positive reinforcement costs nothing. Telling employees, in detail, what you liked or appreciated about what they’ve done in a heartfelt manner can really serve as incredible positive inspiration and reinforcement.
- Bonuses – Bonuses for a job well done can be thought of as a form of physical positive reinforcement, as it provides employees with something physically to show how much you’ve appreciated their job well done. Bonuses can be incredibly effective as a form of positive reinforcement, and they don’t necessarily have to be huge or resource consuming. Sometimes a simple gift card can serve as a great positive bonus, and it will show your employees just how much their work means to you.
- Holidays – You may also want to gift a day off for a personal holiday as positive reinforcement. Seeing how hard an employee has worked, and giving them a relaxation day, can mean the world to them, and give them a reason to want to work even harder for you as time goes on. This may not even need to be a full day, and having a half-day holiday can serve as positive reinforcement just as powerfully!
If you choose to use a staffing firm company, you will reduce the time and in-house resources needed for recruitment dedication; this can lead to a quicker turnaround in filling vacancies and an increase in the efficiency of the organisation.
When positive reinforcement of any kind is part of a corporate culture, you’re getting a nicer, happier, and more connected place to work. Positive reinforcement can be practiced in any number of ways, and you can pick and choose what types of positive reinforcement work best with your business and your team. Positive leadership is something we strive for always at Technalink, and we trust that it won’t take long for you to see why!
