Opinion on Survey Results
Question 1: If people are offered competitive pay would that be more motivating?
I found through a survey that 9 of 10 people surveyed said competitive pay would be more motivating. With that I believe the survey is correct because if you have to work for something it is more rewarding and motivating.
My opinion is that competitive pay, while more motivating, is not generally the answer. I believe that competitive pay raises are probably a more logical answer. I also believe that most business already to this which is why I would do this in my business.
Question 2: If people are offered breakfast every morning would they be more productive in the morning?
I found that 9 of 10 people agree that free breakfast in the mornings would help morning motivation. Being motivated in the morning is key and the key to a good morning is always breakfast. It was no surprise that people would agree with this.
My opinion is that morning breakfast would be beneficial to a business. While it is expensive to provide breakfast I believe I would offer it to my employees if I owned a business. I believe that being motivated in the morning is the key to being motivated for the whole day which leads to being productive all day.
Question 3: Would more frequent breaks help people stay motivated?
I found through a survey that 8 of 10 people believed that frequent breaks would help keep them motivated. Its actually been proven in many studies so this was not a surprise that 80% of people agree with the study.
My opinion is that frequent breaks definitely helps keep you motivated. With higher motivation brings higher productivity. In my business I would offer frequent breaks to my employees to keep morale high.
Question 4: Would an authority figure making frequent checks keep people motivated?
I found that 6 out of 10 people agree that authority figures making frequent checks will keep you more motivated. This was almost 50/50 so people are very split about it.
My opinion is that this is not true and maybe people mis-understood the question. I think that if your boss is constantly on your case that you would be more inclined to be angry and not motivated. However if the frequent checks keep them in line with their work I understand why they voted this way. I would not have frequent checks on my employees if I were to own a business.
Question 5: If there are more seminars on motivation would that help the workplace be motivated?
Through a survey I found that 8 out of 10 people dislike seminars at work. This was pretty straightforward with 80% of the people saying they do not believe surveys help at work.
I strongly agree with this as I dislike seminars myself. I think seminars are a scam because people don't remember anything they heard the day before. For those reasons I would not implement seminars at my own business.
