What Motivates?

By, 02/19/2013

Recruiters often ask, “What motivates employees?” to brainstorm effective ways to communicate with candidates. But motivation isn’t only important for prospective employees—it’s an everyday incentive for current employees, too.

Understanding what motivates you provides insight into why you’re in your current position and options to move forward. On top of that, knowing what motivates your colleagues could help strengthen work relationships and positively impact the office environment. Plus, knowing how your colleagues tick means you know how best to ask for help when needed—and how best to thank them.
