Tip 1 to motivate employees:
Take an interest in their work-life balance

You can offer low-cost incentives like gift cards, catered lunch, or a half day off to show appreciation for a job well done. Finally, a bonus can go far in making an employee happy.
Tip 3 to motivate employees:
Listen to their career goals
If an employee believes that their manager cares about their career goals and ambitions, consequently it can make a huge difference. Also, suggesting mentors or giving tips can help an employee stay motivated and invested.
Tip 4 to motivate employees:
Help them understand “why”
When you see a lack of motivation in your employees, take the time to figure out why they are in that career field. Help them understand and remind them of why they started the job in the first place. Most of the time that is enough to motivate your employees to work smarter.
Tip 5 to motivate employees:
Take the time to give an employee more say in what they are doing. Sometimes giving up a little control or letting the reins loose a bit can make an employee happy and motivated. If you can’t do that, take the time to ask them what should be done differently to make their job easier.
