Do your employees drag themselves into work? Is office laughter a vague memory? Your employees' morale may need a boost.
After all, low morale can lead to poor cooperation, low productivity and increased turnover -- and ultimately hinder a business from reaching its goals.
Since employee morale can quickly build or break a company's success, effective leaders often keep a close eye on it and enlist simple and creative approaches to strengthen it. Here a few tactics to think about adapting for your business:
1 - Mix things up with some Sweet Treats!
Whether it is Cookies, Brownies or maybe something a little healthier like Parfait, reward your staff at the end of a intense or challenging week. Not a fan of sweets, try something salty like a Soft Pretzel!
2 - Keep employees feeling their work is more than just a job.
Everyone wants to feel that his or her work has a higher purpose.
3 - Mix up the company's usual way of doing things.
Departing from the customary routine of meetings and cubicle life can go a long way toward building morale.
4 - Don't forget to have fun.
Kind of self explanatory isn't it? Nothing boosts morale like some unexpected laughter.
