How to boost employee in start ups

Growth could be personality development or career growth. Let your employees know that their skills, knowledge and professionalism will constantly grow as they work in your organization.
2) Provide your employees a long term dream
Times have changed and employees are no longer driven just by financial rewards. Giving your employees a big fat cheque won’t provide them with enough motivation. Rather, providing them a long term dream perspective will boost their engagement in the work. Give your employees a hope that they’ll be a part of something extra ordinary!
3) Good work deserves good rewards
Rewarding the good job done by employees is something every successful business organization has done. There’s no bigger push to work better than rewards. Establish the reward systems at the time of hiring process. Establish the roadmap to promotions beforehand so there’s direction of work in the organization.
4) Build good personal relationship with your employees
In order to understand your employee better and make them feel respected and happy, it’s very important that you get personal with your employees.
