What Really Motivates Employees?
People rarely work for free. Some do. Why? My book has some answers on that, as does this infographic highlighting the limitations of money as a motivator and some of the other needs that are met by work. Take what you want out of it. You will anyway. Just thought I’d say it.
I might write something about infographics soon. I’m in no position to criticise, having the artistic skills of a drunk spider on rollerskates BUT, to me, the best infographics are clever and succinct, not just a list with pictures. Or even worse, a series of lists with pictures. I love the info in this infographic but it seems to me to be just 7 PowerPoint slides stuck together. Some of the best ones have lots of info, are holistic and the imagery itself conveys much of the information not just provides eye candy for the text.
The entire concept of infographics is premised on the old adage ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.’ (Don’t know why I specified it was an old adage. Are there any new adages? An adage is a short but memorable saying which holds some important fact of experience that is considered true by many people, or that has gained some credibility through its long use. Maybe my quip “the artistic skills of a drunk spider on rollerskates” will take off and become an adage in time? It certainly has legs…)
