Keeping your developers motivated is about more than a good salary and benefits. Software developers today are looking for a work culture that not only ties in with their values but offers intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.
An inspired team is a team that will stick around, so finding ways to motivate your employees will assist in employee retention. In this two-part post, we’ll look at six ways to keep your developers motivated.
Empower your developers
Empower your developers to make decisions about their work. You can establish the end goals and define the guidelines but feel free to let your developers decide on the standards, processes and tools that form part of the implementation.
We are teachers, inventors and chefs all rolled into one. We develop software that people can actually use to work or learn, programming languages, education software, apps etc. that are all useful to millions. We provide solutions and answers and with a few lines of code we can touch the world. Not bad for a day’s work.
Technology is changing the corporate environment and being able to work remotely means employers can cut costs and employees have flexibility in their schedules. Creating a culture that enables a work-from-anywhere approach will demonstrate that an employee’s value is not based on whether they’re physically in the office but on the quality of their work.
Surround them with talent
Software developers thrive in environments with likeminded individuals who work well together. No one wants to work in a team that’s not pulling their weight and putting the pressure on one person to pick up the slack of their less talented colleagues. Put together powerful teams of talented individuals who inspire one another.
