[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]20 ways to motivate your employees without raising their pay

It is a costly mistake to get lost in the false theory that more money equals happy employees.

But the key is that additional cash is not always the only answer and in many cases not even the best answer.

Too many bonus or commission checks get cashed, spent and forgotten just that quickly.

Grocery stores and gasoline stations are among the necessary stops that

One alternative to giving commissions or bonus dollars is to give gifts through a catalog point system.

In business, it is very important to make others work for you as they were working for themselfes. It is very important to always maintain a connection with the persons you're working with.

Some employers prefer to have a team building meeting at least once a month, to pay the renting for the football yard, if the employees are men, or to have a trip in another country in a experience exchange session.
