  • Comfortable space to work (nice chairs, office with a window, coffee maker readily available, etc.)
  • The ability to work from home as needed.
  • Flexible hours.


As someone who works in an ABW office with set traditional hours and the infrastructure support but not the managerial support to work from home, i fully agree with those three points.

  • Pizza and or ice cream provided by the boss on occasion as a 'thank you' to employees for their work.

Beer. Pizza and beer.

My old construction job had a full sized, fully stocked beer fridge in the office. :3

Well, if you put it this way, the less time I spend stressing and mentally planning how to strategically pay all of my bills with the least amount of overdraft/late fees, the more time I have to focus on work.

Motivate workers :
Give them the ability to do the work they are responsible for.
Allow them to make their own decisions 'how' to do the task at hand, don't micromanage & tell them what to do as well as how to do it.
Adjust due dates with scope creep.

Beer and bacon. That keeps everyone motivated.

On the serious note. A good motivation for one would be, looking at someone who is successful in walking the same path as you. That encourages one to over come any fear that he or she has to follow that path.

Others could be Determination, practice, etc.
