Hire the right candidates to lessen problems with motivation

Part of building a successful company culture through employee reward programs begins with the hiring process and finding the right people to execute a firm's strategy.

There are a few ways businesses can alter their hiring guidelines to find great employees. For one, firms will want to establish clear communication from the onset of the relationship, Forbes explains.

By ensuring potential hires know the requirements and expectations of the role from the very beginning, companies will likely have fewer problems with motivation and well-being later on. However, communication is a two-way street, and firms need to make sure their applicants are telling the truth when it comes to their own skills.

"How do you ensure someone has the skills they say they do?" Forbes writes. "Test them. These can be written tests, role-plays or simulations such as asking a PR candidate to write a press release for a make-believe product … These tests don't need to be elaborate, but they do need to be able to differentiate the candidates who have the necessary skills from those who don't."

Once a firm decides on whom to hire, the process of communication and engagement shouldn't end there. Businesses will want to have regular assessments and reviews with employees to pinpoint what they need to improve.
