1.The Totally Committed
He throws his life into his work–especially if his office makes it easy to never go home. A high-tech, perk-filled workplace helps keep him motivated.
The Higher Purpose
He wants his work to make a difference in the lives of others. A simple paycheck won’t cut it; show him how his time at your company serves a greater good.
He’d rather grumble here than go elsewhere. Nothing you do makes him happy–and if you’re not careful, he’ll drag your other employees down with him.
The Bottom Line
She’s not getting paid what she’s worth, and thinks the benefits are awful. Maybe you can’t afford to keep her motivated–but trying to replace her could be even more expensive.
The Old Fashioned
He’d be happy to stay with your company for his whole career, if you offer him the right opportunities to grow. Are you doing everything you can to cultivate and retain him?
She’s really more motivated than she might appear. Workplace flexibility matters; so does an employer that’s clearly committed to more than just profit.
