Many research studies have found the correlation of employee morale and productivity. Unfortunately, low morale can creep in and disrupt even the best workplace environments. If employees begin feeling disconnected, they may lose interest in their work and become less invested in their professional development and business’s welfare. According to The Gallup Organization, it is estimated that the annual cost of lost productivity is $350 billion dollars due to absenteeism, increased turnover, and other problems that result when individuals are unhappy at work. Here are five strategies on how to increase employee morale and productivity:
Using your Canvix dry erase board film, create a bulletin board to keep the team informed of their accomplishments. Recognising people for their efforts helps to motivate and positively reinforce the right kind of behavior. This is found to not only increase productivity but loyalty to the company as well.
Rewarding employees for a job well done inspires them to work harder and to be more productive. A little incentive such as an award or a gift card can go a long way in boosting productivity.
Organizing fun, inclusive team building exercises helps improve employee motivation, enhances communication, builds trust, and helps develop problem-solving skills by turning a group of individuals into a cohesive team, thus boosting productivity.
Regularly speaking with and listening to your employees not only helps you gauge morale, it lets your employees know you’re genuinely interested in their well-being and development.
Taking feedback is as important as giving it. Performance feedback involves a two-way line of communication. Asking for honest feedback and addressing issues in a positive manner makes employees happier and feel that you want to help them succeed.
