Make the job motivating.....!!!!

Pressed for time, few entrepreneurs prepare written job descriptions. However, experts agree that improvising is not a winning strategy. The more accurate and realistic you are about specifications and job requirements for the position, the more likely that your people will feel motivated to do a good job. It's important to:
  • Get your top employees involved in their jobs description, so they feel they have genuine input.
  • Put the emphasis on active, engaging verbs such as "analyzes", "sets up" or "operates."
  • Build in clear goals so that employees can see visible progress and results.
  • Ensure that the work is challenging enough for the employee: don't hire somebody with too many skills for the job. Generation "Y" employees don't like jobs that feel trivial.
  • Give your employees enough leeway to be independent, which encourages personal and professional development.
  • Compensate your employees based on their performance.
