Companies using modern management techniques give value to its members. No longer do managers refer to the people working for them as employees; company leaders refer to their subordinates as members of their organization. The reason for this is that managers must make the people feel empowered. The message here is that the members grow just as much as the organization grows. More than the benefits and the salary, this will convince members that they wake-up each day and work for the expansion of the organization because they are an integral contributor to the growth of the organization.
It’s hard to convince members to wear a specific uniform design that could have promoted unity and equality between members. Instead of requiring members to wear a collared shirt emblazoned with a company logo every time they go to work, company managers require members to use custom lanyards.
All companies require identification cards and most organizations require employees to wear them at all times for security reasons. Custom lanyards are subtler clothing article that can have the company logo and the company tagline along the neck of organization members. Most lanyards come in thicker width, providing enough space for readable fonts.
Not only do they provide identity but these accessories give wearers a sense of pride that they belong to such big-name company. Their lanyard can be seen as a medal that proves the importance of their work to the company. It suggests a feeling of belongingness and togetherness. Not only does this help promote the organization’s vision but it helps create an atmosphere of being a professional family rather than just a money-making opportunity that can be ditched anytime another company makes a bigger offer.
Human resource managers these days are smart enough to study the human psyche. The last decade has seen employees jump from one company to another because they only see companies as a way to earn money which they can use to pay for the bills and the education of their children. Human resource managers have looked for ways other than salary and benefits to motivate organization members.
Work is not work when it’s fun. A company has a good organizational climate when leaves are seldom filed or if they are filed for emergency or health reasons. Low tardy records are also good determinants. When organization members are excited to go to work, this means they are motivated to perform their jobs. This also means they love what they are doing and most of it is because they are having fun.
Instead of dragging themselves to work, whether via the commute or their own private cars, organization members will have no problem waking up in the morning, wearing their custom lanyards, getting past the commute and showing up in the office every single day. They will look forward to weekends, not because of stress but because they need to rest to sustain their health as their well-being is very valuable to the company.
Members having this mindset as they go to work every day will not only decrease absences and tardiness, this will motivate them to give a better performance. This way, managers don’t need to set quota; instead, they will only have to set goals.
Goals are important. These help people gauge if they are growing with the company and if they are satisfied with the performance they are giving. Ultimately more than just the motivation the likes of custom lanyards, company trips, and additional benefits can provide, it is the satisfaction that comes from finishing the job that should motivate members in doing their job well.
So the next time they wear their company custom lanyards, they will wear it proud.
