Empower your employees by having them make their own decisions and allowing them to think out of the box. It'll help them, the business, and you as an HR person. Create an open environment where people can share things.
And what others said, I just thought I'd add that because I didn't see "empowerment" anywhere.

Dear All

At the outset, I extend my gratitude for those who had posted precious information about MOTIVATING EMPLOYEES. Please keep up the good work.

Dear Ms. Kavita

Since you said your company is small, definitely you'll be having BUDGET CONSTRAINTS. Please allow me present my views for your query.

1) To motivate employees Best way is to experience the POWER OF APPRECIATION which will bring MASSIVE RESULTS.

2) POLITE/HUMBLE/KIND/SOFT COMMUNICATION STYLE will boost your employees MORALE and will help them to develop POSITIVE ATTITUDE.

3) You will find plenty MOTIVATIONAL information online which you can SHARE with your EMPLOYEES everyday.

4) Please ensure that, the AGENDA OF MOTIVATION IS DEFINED which can solve the purpose rather just carrying the activity without SPECIFIC GOAL. Please be focused in your Motivational Activities

Sharing knowledge is not about give and take policy. Sharing knowledge occurs when people are genuinely interested in helping one another to develop new capabilities for better performance which creates TOTAL LEARNING PROCESS. Help your employees to enhance their skills at various verticals and improve their READING SKILLS that enhances PATIENCE LEVELS, besides it also improves WRITING/LETTER DRAFTING SKILLS.

Hope this will do the needful.

Dear Ms. Kavita
On a positive note you can say "BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME BUT DON'T MISS YOUR TRAIN AGAIN AND AGAIN" rather talking NEGATIVE which DEMOTIVATES employees faster than anything else in this world.

We need to find out THE REASON from those who missed their targets. Study your employee well about their INTEREST and HOW PASSIONATE they are towards their job.

a) I don't suggest any LOGO for NON-ACHIEVEMENT but you can present something that reminds about NON-ACHIEVEMENT and MOTIVATES to ACHIEVE SET TARGET.
b) Once TARGET is achieved you can take it back and present to another who did achieve the same.

This way you can carry out this activity and make sure that employee hates to receive that GIFT which reminds him/her about his NON-ACHIEVEMENT.

I do have experience in MARKETING DOMAIN and my strategy was quite different from others as i believe in BEING CREATIVE & UNIQUE from the REST. The same i had trained to my team members as well. Train your employees to

a) "ADD 100% ADDITIONAL TARGET TO THE TARGET SET BY THE COMPANY" This strategy will drive your employees crazy to achieve their targets but ensure that employee doesn't get frustrated because its all about NUMBER GAME and LOOSING ENERGY
b) MOTIVATE them to achieve BEYOND THEIR LIMITS for which they shall be COMPENSATED for their HARD WORK/ACHIEVEMENT.

Please apply CREATIVITY at all levels which is nothing but THINKING OUT OF THE BOX and DARE TO ACHIEVE BIG or DARE TO DREAM BIG & REALIZE IT.

Please be POSITIVE all the time and don't react/act NEGATIVELY even if your circumstances are not favoring you. Learn to MOTIVATE your employees and this will produce BEST RESULTS.

Implement the greatness of this proverb "The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible" – Arthur C. Clarke

If there is anything else i can do for you and other members of CITEHR, kindly do feel free to contact me. I wish to learn more out of less.

Good luck in all your endeavors

With profound regards
