  Achievement and Challenge as Motivating Factor
Mandulo, Manager, South Africa, Member
  There are quite number of ways to motivate your employees and the trick is that they do not work all the time. The other challenge is to know when to use them. Some common problems which I have identified in different companies:
1. Leadership
2. Unfair recognition programme
3. Lack of recognition
Most employees are motivated by achievements and it is important that these achievements are linked to company goals. This information must be shared with the employees starting from realistic company goals. There must be a reviews and share of achievements also the challenges for not achieving other goals.
Recognition can motivate and demotivate employees. If the recognition is not transparent or fair it can cause more problems. The recognition must not favour certain group or individuals so as the rewards. People want to be treated fair and once you do that you have started to unlock some of the reasons causing demotivation.
