How do you think an organisa-
tion runs? With the help of people
who contribute in their own way
to accomplish tasks and achieve
goals of the organisation.
The individuals who spend their
maximum part of the day at the
workplace, striving hard to reach
to a conclusion benefiting them
as well as the organisation are
called as employees.
In a layman s language employ-
ees are the lifeline of an organi-
sation. A human being would die
if there is no blood in his body,
similarly an organisation can t sur-
vive without employees. Employees
are the main assets of the organ-
isation and it is really important
for them to prioritise their tasks
at the workplace.
They should think about their
company more than anything else.
To extract the best out of each
team member, it is important that
they enjoy their work and feel
attached to the organisation.
An employee must be commit-
ted towards his organisation for
him to deliver his best and remain
motivated. The employees must
be engaged in productive and chal-
lenging tasks so that they do not
lose their focus and avoid conflicts
and unnecessary disputes. An
employee must be engaged in his
work for maximum output.

a condition where the employees
are fully engrossed in their work
and are emotionally attached to
their organisation. One can t
achieve anything unless and until
one is serious about it. An employ-

work and should take it as a chal-
lenge. Work should never get
monotonous as it would then be
a burden for the individual.
Problems arise when individuals
have nothing creative to do and
sit idle the whole day. They start
interfering in each other s work
and tend to become negative for
the organisation. They start finding
reasons to fight with their fellow
workers and crib about almost

challenging assignments as per
their interests and expectations so
that they devote their maximum
time to work rather than loitering
and gossiping around.
The team leaders or the man-
agers must ensure to review their
team member s performance on a
weekly basis to find out whether
they are enjoying their work or
not? An employee must not treat
his organisation as a mere source
of earning money only. An organ-
isation is a place where employees
go to upgrade their skills and learn
something new every day. One
must respect and love his job to
expect the same. Never talk ill of
your organisation in front of any-

Make sure there is transparency
in communication at all levels and
everyone is aware of what is hap-

Cash prizes, trophies, gift vouchers,

Such activities help the employees
to develop a sense of trust and loyalty
towards the management and stick to
the organisation for a longer period of
time. They consider the organisation s
goals as their goals and thus try to
achieve them at any cost.

ership of their work and do every pos-
sible thing which satisfies them as well
as the organisation.
