How to inspire quick employee motivation
Motivation: Noun Desire or willingness to do something; enthusiasm:keep staff up to date and maintain interest and motivation. We all have different motivations for working, but essentially we all work to obtain something we need. That something impacts on our morale and motivation and quality of life. Of course it is about the money. Yes, some work for the love of it, others for personal fulfillment, some like accomplishing goals that make them feel they are contributing to something greater, something of importance, a personal mission that can be achieved through meaningful work. What does this all mean for an employer who wants to instill a sense of provide, a strong feeling of motivation in a short period of time? Your company has a brand, a mission and you need to intill a love of this as soon as possible. Others truly love what they do or the clients they serve. Some like the camaraderie and interaction with customers and coworkers. Other people like to fill their time with activity. Some workers like change, challenge, and diverse problems to solve.
Why companies’ financial structure matters after all
“IRRELEVANCE theory” contains one of the most startling conclusions in economic thought. In two papers, published in 1958 and 1963, Franco Modigliani and Merton Miller argued that a firm's financial structure—its split between equity and different sorts of debt, its dividend policy and so on—made no difference to its total value. Financial structure merely affected how the corporate pie was shared out; it had no effect on the size of the pie itself. Managers and owners should therefore waste no time agonising about gearing, dividends and such like, and instead devote themselves to maximising the value of their firms. This insight helped win Modigliani and Miller Nobel prizes in economics (although two such giants would surely have earned them without it). Unfortunately, it also set back for a generation the study by economists of corporate finance. The problem is not that irrelevance theory is wrong but that it is true only in circumstances so rare that they are the exception rather than the rule: that the choice of financial structure does indeed affect the value of a firm.
