|I\'ve heard quite a few maintenance professionals complaining that they find it very hard to motivate their workers. To quote a worker \"Give me more money, and I\'ll give you more work.\" PM is an extremely challenging area for motivation, for the reason that periodic checks, cleaning, greasing and other activities are pretty boring. Also, motivation is not something you \'do\' to employees. It\'s a feeling you bring out in them. There are a number of ways to create a motivated feeling in your workers. The thing that motivates maintenance people quite possibly motivates you, as well. When you have felt motivated, give some thought to what was going on. Apply the information to your maintenance workers and be ready for a brand new attitude.
