Guillo - I think you've made your position quite clear I was responding to Verito who said "if you want to live in Argentina, you have to learn to live with inflation and with the way Argentines stimulate workers, usually not necessarily with money..." I am asking if not money, than what are these other ways that Verito was referring to? I am always interested in learning and hopefully finding new ideas.Guillo said:There's few ways to motivate your employees if the money they are receiving for their work is less and less all the time. And even if its not your direct fault...you are not going to be able to motivate them if they don't believe their basic needs (money to pay for stuff) are covered. Is that so hard to accept?
Shrug - I think I've made my position clear as well. I have and will continue to do what I can to offer my employees a fair cost of living adjustment. B/C I understand the pain of inflation - again, I've had 1 raise in 3+ years b/c sr management had a salary freeze due to the economic conditions. I would love a raise too But there is a limit to the pool of available monies for my business and I would imagine many other businesses so what is there has gone to employees but at some point, we're simply not going to be able to continue offering 30 or 40% raises. So again, the point of this thread was asking for other ideas and suggestions that employers have utilized besides money.
