So if you want your staff to be at their best and top form, and give you good business results, you have to make sure that they are engaged and equally motivated.

2. Make Work FUN for your Employees

With this, it only follows that its people should be focus on that goal to ensure the success of their company. However, this does NOT mean that there is no room for fun in the workplace (if that’s what you think this is going). In fact, all business organizations and its HR department should recognize “Fun at Work” program because according to a study, companies with happy employees outperform employees by 20% and are 12% more productive.
