6 Proven Ways to Boost Employee Morale

6 Proven Ways to Boost Employee Morale
Employee morale has a direct effect on employee productivity, engagement, retention, and positivity. Employees with high morale are highly productive and are happy to come to work every day. On the other hand, employees with low morale clock in and out of work mindlessly, have reduced concentration and a negative mindset.

The Department of Labor reported that the number one reason people leave their jobs is because they “do not feel appreciated.” Moreover, a recent Gallup study found that 23% of full-time employees reported feeling “burned out at work very often or always,” and another 44% reported feeling burned out at least some of the time.

Here we’ll talk about 6 ways you can improve and boost employee morale in your workplace.

1. Offer Work-Life Balance

Your employees are humans, and their personal lives are important to them too. So, offer them a way to balance their work and life. Help them address personal needs by offering flexible hours, paid time off, and work from home options. This will boost their morale and also help them bring their best energy to work.

2. Promote Good Work Culture

An employee in good work culture is a good team player, working towards bringing the best outcomes for the company. Create a work culture where you incubate trust, accountability, respect, result orientation, adaptability, teamwork, learning opportunities, seamless communication, and so on.

3. Offer Perks and Benefits

Employee benefits have a huge role to play in boosting employee morale. But perks are a little something that employees look forward to. Usually, perks are not a part of the employee’s compensation package. Give them a few perks like casual dress code, gym memberships, discount coupons, etc. and see how it does wonders to the morale of the employees.

4. Organize Team Building Activities

Team-building exercises not only boost employee morale but also help build a motivated and collaborative work culture. Organize team-building activities like dumb charades, scavenger hunt or office trivia to make the games fun and exciting.

5. Give and Get Feedback

Acknowledging employee’s contributions and giving them positive feedback go a long way to boost employee morale. Make sure if you are giving constructive feedback, support and help them with things that need improvement.

Getting employee feedback is also a crucial aspect of boosting employee morale. When you ask employees their feedback, they feel their opinions matter, and they are much more likely to stay motivated. However, after you collect their feedback, make sure you thank your employee and act on the feedback wherever possible.

6. Designate Break Time and Area

Your employees may need to take quick breaks in between work to let their minds relax for a few minutes. During this break, they may want to nap, stretch, meditate or even talk, discuss and exchange ideas with colleagues. So, create a comfortable space (probably a dedicated break room) where your employees can relax and recharge.
