While, on paper, most people are motivated by extrinsic factors such as promotions, praise, attention and money, in reality, it's the intrinsic factors of personal satisfaction, engagement and learning new things that keep our motivation levels and morale high in the workplace. In order to build the best team that you can, it is important to consider all of these elements.
It is important to employees that they are in roles that suit their personality, strengths and weaknesses, to allow them to grow and develop their careers along with your business. Choosing the right person for the job is essential to your team, department and overall company, but it is also crucial for the individual, as it will allow them to thrive in the right setting. The wrong person in a job will not feel engaged or want to develop within their role.
