In the article, “Help People Thrive at Work: Encourage Employee Involvement”, summarizes the most important conclusions to motivate people to choose work. The proposal by Petzinger is that “being good in business calls on being good at being human.” The sense of personal control will allow people to become naturally productive and that efficiency is intrinsic. Also, Petzinger believes that in order to have motivated employees, a great manager should incorporate “control, measurement of work processes, simplicity, communication, fun and energizing environments, excellent work tools and training, and commitment.” Lastly, the importance of forming teams to complete tasks will boost employee involvement and continuous improvement. I think that all managers should strive to do the simple things right in order to boost employee engagement and job involvement. Once you achieve a happy work environment, people will be comfortable and committed to their work, which will leave them satisfied at the job they are pursuing.
