Motivation of employees is extremely important in order for an organization to function well. If there is no incentive for employees to try or to care about the progress of the company, then the company will fail. It seems kind of trivial and like the work that employees produce should be the number one priority, but in reality, a company is only as strong as the people who make it up. There are several ways that a manager can motivate their employees, one of the best is by offering prizes to the employee who performs the best during a set period of time. Competition tends to bring out the best and worst in people, so it would also be a good way to see how people react under a set of certain circumstances. Another way to motivate employees is by having company retreats or office parties. These put people in a good mood, which makes them more willing to perform better, and also gives them a sense of belonging in their work environment--creating a family atmosphere.
