What are your most effective team motivation tactics?

What do you feel motivates your team the most?

Money, extra vacation days, gifts, food? 

Tracie Costabile

In my experience, my team members are most motivated when I include them in the big picture.  Making sure they understand how critical their part in the overall goals of the company are, and giving them complete autonomy over their piece of the company pie empowers and inspires them.  I also make a point to publicly praise them whenever they go above and beyond, and thank them often for their consistent contributions.

We also offer perks like free snacks and drinks, flexible schedules, casual dress code, and a pet friendly office, which make the day-to-day easier and more enjoyable for everyone.

OOOH!! Pet friendly! That's phenomenal! What happens if someone is allergic?!

Tracie Costabile

Hasn't happened yet with any employee, but we have had visitors who were allergic.  In those cases we kept the dogs in an office until the visitor was gone.  All the dogs here are exceptionally well behaved.  We may have to revisit this policy if we ever hire someone full time who is allergic.

Being a part of the team is huge
