Boosting Office Morale
Human Resources can be your company’s greatest asset. What does it take to improve performance and provide a positive workplace?
What do you know about how your employees really feel about your workplace? Are they generally happy? Or are you more concerned with their fastidious attention to their job without considering their comfort or overall attitude?
While it is totally understandable that “time is money,” and that your workers are there to…work, it doesn’t take much to improve morale and make your workplace a more positive environment. In fact, Forbes Magazine recently elaborated on a Harvard Review study that showed happy employees are between 31 and 37% more productive.
Believe it or not, even making a few changes around your office can help improve the positive environment of your workplace, and hopefully lead to better performance from your workers.
1. Ergonomically Correct Office Furniture
We’ve discussed this before, but making basic improvements to the comfort of your office staff can have a positive effect on their morale and productivity. Making sure their workspace maximizes their comfort, especially when they are sitting in basically the same position all day, will help reduce the chance of developing long term issues such as back and neck problems, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It may also reduce the possibility of being hit with a Worker’s Compensation claim.
2. Productivity-Based Incentives
Providing incentives such as gift cards can help to provide your employees with motivation to get the job done in a more timely and efficient manner. Many of the products we offer come with specials and incentives including gift cards based on your order, so you wouldn’t be out of pocket.
3. Coffee and Snacks
In some cases, nothing boosts morale more than a jolt of java or a little snack during that “3PM drag time.” Providing a little break and a bit of a “rush” can help sluggish employees make it through to the 5 o’clock hour.
