How to help your employees be more proactive at work

Proactive employees are any organisation’s dream as they are self-motivated, hustlers and problem solvers. But unfortunately, very rarely does this dream turn into a reality. In most cases employers need to keep fueling their employees to encourage proactive behaviour, which proves to be quite a task. So if you have been thinking of ways to boost your team’s participation at work here are a few things that you could try.

Reinforce them for proactive behaviour

Positive reinforcement is the best form of motivation, be it verbal or materialistic it always works like a charm. Make sure you acknowledge your employees when they go the extra mile or even pamper them with gift cards or vouchers. Reinforcing employees builds a culture of empowerment and trust, which motivates them to perform better. More than anything it gives them the confidence to voice out their opinions and to suggest novel solutions to better existing processes.

Promote working from home

Even though many people think that working from home is as good as a holiday, you’ll be surprised to see the amount of work an employee actually does while working from home. While working from home the employee can use the saved travel time to complete the work in hand in a more refined manner. Moreover, trusting your employees to work from home helps in building a positive work culture within the organisation. 

Challenge employees with a creative contest

You’ll be surprised to see what a creative contest can do to your organisation. More than anything a contest of this nature pushes everyone to think out of the box and to explore one’s creative side. If possible try and design the contest around a problem within the organisation, so that you can get creative solutions for it. You can also initiate an idea contest that would transform your employees into a proactive workforce.
