6 Creative Ways to Boost Employee Morale
Posted on 08/06/2018
When it comes to sustaining a successful business, one component which is often overlooked, but incredibly valuable, is employee morale. As business author Patrick Lencioni said, “When leaders throughout an organization take an active, genuine interest in the people they manage, when they invest real time to understand employees at a fundamental level, they create a climate for greater morale, loyalty and yes, growth.” If a management team drives vision for a business, and marketing brings clients into the business, then employees are those who actually move the business forward.
After all, without employees, a business cannot make sales. And without happy employees, a business can definitely not be successful in sales. In fact, one article by Forbes even quoted a study which found that happy employees are as much as 20% more productive than unhappy ones. When it comes to sales in particular, happy salespeople can raise a company’s sales by as much as 37%. So, how can a business focus on creating and promoting a happy culture for its employees? Here are six creative ways to boost employee morale.
1. Have consistent huddles.
2. Show the “why” behind the job.
3. Avoid micromanaging.
4. Encourage continued learning.
5. Offer public recognition.
6. Remember to say thank you.
When it comes to building a successful and thriving company, employee morale is a critical component. Utilize these ideas to boost employee morale within your business, and see how it can positively affect overall sales growth.
