How to Motivate Employees

One of the key tasks of a HR manager is to find proper applicants for positions. It should be noted, that not only hard skills are to be taken into consideration, but also soft skills, that is, personal qualities that help a person adapt to new conditions, solve tasks and eliminate conflicts.

However, it is important to understand that organic integration into a new team also requires some effort on the part of the employee, so the task of the HR manager is to use appropriate motivation so that the newcomer can become a part of the team. For this purpose, we apply motivation according to the DISC typology. 

DISC (Dominance, Influence, Stability, Compliance)


  • An individual is motivated by achievements, breakthroughs, results, new goals, growth, and professional development.


  • An applicant is a friendly person;
  • status, reward, recognition from society, and public approval which can motivate are important for him(her).


  • Work for the company meets the expectations of an employee: he (she) receives material remuneration, bonuses, and has a legal day off for rest and recovery.




  • In order to integrate the applicant into the team, the manager uses methods of encouragement, request for help. 
  • The social contribution of the employee him(her)self; the support and encouragement of the team will allow them to become part of the community.
