Ways Businesses Motivate Their Staff
Tesco motivates its employees by having flexible working hours and also they have a gym membership that staff can go to. This helps to motivate staff because by having flexible working hours, staff can work at a time that suits them. For, example a single mum can work between her children’s school hours so that she can pick them up from school and stay with them.
