In business, motivating employees is a critical part of being successful.  Giving the employees recognition for their accomplishments and allowing employee input into how the job functions are important parts of motivating employees.  Giving employees responsibility for their work and its methods helps the employee feel his or her worth in the job.  Believable  feedback is also essential for giving the employee motivation to do their job well or better than before.  Whichever methods are used, employers must recognize that the success of their business rests directly on the employees who work with or meet the public or produce the product the public buys.  Without employee satisfaction and motivated people, the business will begin to lose the success it once had.
