Motivation

This TED Talk by Dan Pink is one of the most interesting I have seen in a long time. Before reading this blog post, please watch it. The video is about eighteen minutes, but it will challenge many of the ideas you have about motivating employees.

Now I’m not saying I want to abolish all bonuses at my workplace — I quite enjoy them! But… we may have to focus a little more on the intrinsic motivations that naturally come from the industry esyringe is in.

Many would find it intrinsically motivating to work for a company that supplies laboratories and hospitals that, in turn, work on life saving chemical and blood compounds.

I hope that businesses do not continue to ignore the facts that science has discovered, as Dan Pink stated.

About life at esyringe

Life at esyringe is about the inner workings of a small business based in Washington State. Get a good laugh or some introspection at lifeatesyringe.wordpress.com The company sells syringes online, hence 'esyringe'. No, not syringes you would put in a vein, but syringes that go into larger machines for analyzing blood and chemical compounds.
