Top 10 factors that motivate employees

Recently, a friend showed me the results of a survey of employees around the world. When it comes to what motivate staff to give their best at work, the following Top 10 motivating factors were identified:
1. Appreciation or recognition for a job well done
2. Being in the know about company matters
3. An understanding attitude from the management
4. Job security
5. Good wages
6. Interesting work
7. Career advancement opportunities
8. Loyalty from management
9. Good working conditions
10. Tactful discipline

It seems that in Singapore, not enough emphasis has been placed in these areas. Some of these factors are self-evident. However, some need elaboration to clarify what employees are really looking for and what business owners and managers can do to make these factors happen. If unsure, just drop me an e-mail and I'll answer them.
