TASK
Motivation among staff in any organization is very crucial and it is one of the driving factors
that leads people to work harder and to be more productive for the growth of the
organization.

As a head of your department, you believe that motivation is the most important contributing
factor to overall satisfaction, which leads to higher employee retention. Therefore, you are
planning to give a talk to all staff in your department to keep them motivated throughout
their employment.

Knowing that instilling motivation is not an easy task, try to be creative by applying multiple
strategies to reach each individual as everyone is unique with their own values and ideas.

Each point should be elaborated with significant facts and examples.
