If you want to maintain a productive company, building a great team is not enough. You want your team members to enjoy working for the company, for each other, and for the customers. Explore how to maintain workplace morale. Start by learning from what has worked for other companies.
- Offer work with a purpose. You believe your company serves a higher purpose, and this motivates you every day. Make sure your employees feel the same way. For instance, the Snagajob.com job-search organization shares “I Got a Job!” messages from successful job seekers with all of its employees. Your employees will be more motivated to come to work when they can see positive results.
- Celebrate accomplishments. As an executive, you may not know of your employees’ most important achievements. Accomplishments may go unnoticed above the departmental level, which leaves employees feeling unrecognized. Acuity, an insurance company, takes this challenge seriously. Each year, every department provides a list of their accomplishments to company officers, who compile a list of “Top 100 Accomplishments,” which it shares with every employee.
- Make time for fun. You are mindful of the budget. However, you can find affordable ways to let your employees blow off steam while building camaraderie. Encourage friendly competition with a game day. FatWallet, an online shopping marketplace, hosts such events monthly, with board games and the Wii game system—activities that cost a lot less than a retreat or a lavish holiday party.
