Most of us have all been employees at one time or another. As an employer you can create an environment of workers that want to do the tasks you have trained them to do. Simply getting paid every two weeks is not enough to motivate an employee to work hard. Pretty soon boredom in the work setts in and complacency takes shape.
Unmotivated workers will never do more, go further, think outside of paper bag let alone a box. Unmotivated workers soon become complainers about the menial tasks they are being made to perform. Unmotivated employees soon begin sell their discontent to other workers. It was the unmotivated and unhappy worker that convinced the other sailors on the Bounty to mutiny. #muntinyonthebounty
On the other hand a motivated employee cannot wait to get to work and pick up where he or she left off the day before.
