I Work Here Because…

One Short, Simple Mental Exercise for Work-Changing Results

mo·tive  [moh-tiv] noun 1. something that causes a person to act in a certain way, do a certain thing, etc.

Your motive is directly related to your motivation at work. Although this may seem like an obvious concept, if you take a step back and reflect on your motive, you begin to see how compounded and cluttered your motivation can become.

For instance, answer this one simple question: Why do you work where you work? Can you fill in this blank: “I work here because…”

If you’re struggling to answer these questions, first off, you’re not alone. Secondly, you might want to do some basic soul-searching.

According to researchers at Portland State University and the University of Michigan, reflecting on the meaning of your work (your motive) is one of the most effective ways to keep your energy up at work. Read more by clicking here.

Once you figure out the “why”, write it down, post it somewhere around your desk, in your car or anywhere you will be sure to see it periodically. When workdays get tough, as they often do, if you have no “why,” your enthusiasm will be shallow, your energy level will drop and your motivation will be…unmotivated.

Having a why speaks to “meaning” and “purpose.” Having meaning and purpose are highly motivating.

Tips on How to Increase Productivity in the Workplace

Increasing productivity in the workplace is of paramount importance if the organization is to ever perform at it’s best.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

Increasing productivity in the workplace is essential in building a good corporation. According to studies, it has been found that only 23 percent of employees are motivated, enthusiastic and energized at work. However, there are things that bosses and supervisors can do to increase the number.

How You Address Employees Is Important 

When you enter the workplace, it’s important to greet employees in a polite manner. This makes them feel more human and appreciated. Saying a simple ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ may seem to be small gestures, but they mean a lot.

Give Credit Where it is Due

Give credit to your employees where it’s due. If you see one of your employees excelling and putting in a lot of effort, make sure you recognize it. This is important because it will make them feel more appreciated and will motivate them, and possibly others to create more productivity in the workplace. Encourage the employees to have fun in the office once in a while. This could be done by taking a break with your employees to a place where they can relax and not think about work. This will lighten the atmosphere at work.

Learn how to communicate well with your employees. They need to know exactly what is expected of them as far as goals at work are concerned. Following these few steps can help to increase productivity in the workplace.

Increasing Productivity in the Workplace Through Employee Morale

Boosting the employee morale through these mentioned ways can help increase the productivity in the workplace

Boosting employee morale by using these tips can help to increase productivity in the workplace.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.


As an organization, there are days where things just hit rock bottom and productivity in the workplace is nonexistent. As a result, the morale in the office might get low. Seeing that things have reached their worst, being quiet about the situation until it changes will not help the office atmosphere, let alone the productivity. It is therefore important during these times to meet daily in the workplace so that you can share with the employees what management is doing in order to improve the situation and make things right for them. This allows your employees to relate with the progress you are making and as a result, this will spark some level of motivation in them.

Listen to Employees

Sometimes, though most managers might not want to hear this, you can change around the Monday schedule and allow the employees to start work a bit late so that they can be focused for the week. It is no secret that Mondays are a drag. When you allow them to come in late, it increases their levels of focus and this will translate to an increase in the productivity in the workplace. Lastly, always let the employees have a say. Nothing kills an organization more than management that doesn’t know what the workforce’s opinion is on whatever is going on. When you let them talk freely, feeling as if they will be listened to, they know that they are a necessary part of something and this will help productivity in the workplace.
