How You Can Boost Employee Morale, To Boost Your Success

By Lamamma @LAmamma1

If you work in an environment where laughter is a memory of the past, and you find that your team (and yourself included) are dragging yourselves into work, then it could be a sign that the moral in your office needs a boost. When morale is low, the best work isn’t getting done. Employees will find any reason to not come into work, and it could even lead them to look for work elsewhere. So taking time to boost the morale in the office can actually make good business sense. Of course, not everyone is going to get along all of the time. But when the place that you all work is a cooperative, fun, and enjoyable space, it can make the working day much easier.

In fact, there have been many studies about workplace morale, and many articles online. For example, an article like this one: WorkMed Drug Testing – Why Should You Screen Employees? It talks through the benefits of screening employees, if it doesn’t already make business sense to you. If you need more clarification, it could be a good place to look. With all of that in mind, here are some tactics to start doing today, to make sure that you are able to give the morale in your office a boost.


Bigger Picture

When you hire someone, they quite often will only see what their job is and what they should be doing on a day to day basis. But if more and more employees understand the bigger picture of your business, and how what they do has an impact on other areas of the business, it can give a great feeling of worth and value. So while them knowing their job inside out, it is a good idea to talk through how the role really benefits the business, and helps other departments to get the job done.

Celebrate Accomplishments

It can be really natural to focus on what you have left to do and what is ahead. But if you are looking for ways to boost the morale of your team, then it can be a good idea to go back and look at what your team have achieved and done. We all like to get praised, even if we are doing something that we get paid for. How you choose to this is up to you; some companies do a top 100 list at the end of the year. But if your team is really needing a boost, could it be turned into a monthly thing (but obviously, only where credit is due).

Have Fun
When you’re at work, there is a job to do. But you can still make things more enjoyable. Do you celebrate birthdays or special occasions? Do you plan weekend trips or drinks out as a team? When you all get to know each other better, you are likely to understand each other more, and get on better. That can make the whole time at work much more enjoyable.
