The mysterious word “motivation” stops scaring you when you start … talking to employees.🙂 The best way to increase productivity and reduce employee turnover is to turn employees into company ambassadors, and simple motivation can do this and even more. Moreover, the paradox of this phenomenon is that you don’t notice it while it is there. However, when it disappears, it looks like you can readjust something so that things get back to normal.
But it’s not really like that. Motivation is a complex phenomenon, this is why interaction processes must be built on all sides. Some managers may turn on the parental instinct – actively deciding what employees want without even asking. However, asking an employee questions is easier, faster, and more efficient. 🙂
One-to-one meetings are actually the only way to know the atmosphere in the team, what each employee thinks and feels like. Of course, you can say that everything that happens 1:1 remains 1:1. But not quite.
At these meetings, you as a leader will hear many hidden moments, pitfalls that greatly affect employee productivity. For employees, these meetings are useful, because they are not about the work results, but rather about how to make the tasks more comfortable for you as an employee, where you want to grow and what you want to become “when you grow up”.😄
The advantages will only be seen if you use this practical tool wisely. 🙂 Moreover, in order to gain this knowledge, we at Simpals conducted trainings for managers on how to properly conduct 1: 1 meetings. Trainings have been held, managers have been trained, and the tool has been successfully implemented.
Now we will start to closely develop the most valuable and the best of our projects – the team!
In 2021, we had a chance to convince ourselves that only a strong and friendly team is capable of generating great ideas and starting innovative projects. Company employees are the most important resource for us, the very engine that makes everything work. We are so different, and at the same time we complement each other

Working at Simpals is not just about challenging tasks, constant growth and cool folks around from whom you learn new things every day. This is also about unusual lunch breaks 🙂
For example: lunch with a delicious cup of coffee. The guys from Tucano Beans dropped by and treated us to some extraordinary coffee, or better
