Why perks are no longer enough
Take a quick mental look at the history of the workplace. You don’t need to go back a considerable amount of time, just a decade or two ago should suffice to see the state of continuous transformation of the workplace. And, while back in the days it took a while until the 8-hour workday was introduced, nowadays we’re talking about fast-paced developments. This is no time to be left behind. Labour itself has changed tremendously over time, and along with it, employers’ requirements, and employees’ demands. This is why, in the current state of affairs, offering various, formal benefits is no longer enough.

Or the end-goal of employee development programs
To try and explain why motivation is important in every journey, be it personal or professional, is a bit like trying to reinvent the wheel. It can’t be done. Motivation is such an intrinsic human characteristic that its presence is axiomatic. Motivation is the main driver of all human actions. In healthy amounts, it makes the difference between success or failure. We specified “healthy” amounts because, as the saying goes, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Any of the extremes can be harmful – being over-motivated and lacking discipline can lead to a waste of resources, human or otherwise; being under-motivated can lead to failure or serious deficiencies.
