No matter how much you are invested and passionate about your job, you often find yourself dragging to the workplace on Mondays. It is common and often happens when a person has spent a really wholesome weekend.
But what happens when this condition becomes a daily routine? To be precise, it shows an acute de-motivation of the given individual. And if a workplace is ‘brimming’ with those de-motivated individuals, then it’s an alarming situation for the employer. A business can’t sustain for longer if it has to persist with a bunch of de-motivated and impassive employees.
One can furnish a laundry list that causes this workplace de-motivation. But in this blog, we are going to put down some of the most consequential reasons that lead to create a de-motivated workforce.
1) A Looming Uncertainty
If your workplace firing and hiring rate is too high, then it is not going to bode well with your existing employees. No one can keep himself/herself motivated for work where it’s not clear what is going to happen next month. Such workplaces that don’t ensure job security to workers inevitably instill de-motivation among them.
Moreover, an organization that has hit a standstill with its progress also spread uncertainty and de-motivation among employees. Lack of communication between the management and employees only make matters worse in any such situation.
2) No Proportionate Sense of Progress
A workplace that doesn’t proportionate employee performance with growth often experiences dejected and de-motivated workforce. You can’t expect employees to remain galvanized and motivated without delivering them the progress they deserve. When employees know that no progress is in sight regardless of how they perform. They adopt that ‘bare minimum’ approach just to keep getting their pay slips.
3) Micromanagement by the Supervisors
There is no doubt that robust workplace supervision is always needed to make sure things get done in time. However, when this control and management becomes too extensive and intrusive, it becomes counterproductive.
Any workplace operates with an adult and qualified workforce that is sensible enough to understand and deliver their duties and roles. When employees have to answer and justify each and every bit of workplace activity to managers, they start feeling that they are not dependable and trustworthy, which ultimately distills into de-motivation.
4) No Incentives and Subpar Benefits
You have to keep incentivize your workforce to protect them from getting de-motivated. It’s an ongoing process. So, if you are working with an outdated employee benefits program and offering no substantial incentives, then you are most certainly brewing the issue of workplace de-motivation.
While listening to the stories of impressive workplace benefits from their friends and ex-coworkers, a person can only feel misery, resentment, and de-motivation about his/her own workplace, which is offering no considerable benefits and incentives.
