Increase Overall Morale In Your Team.
It’s easy to have the idea, that by boosting your company’s employee morale, that your productivity will go up. Though, as easy as it may seem, a lot of the time, keeping your employee’s in high spirits can be a complex task. If no one in your company is happy, it’s easy for them to lose sight of their tasks at hand. To be fair, how “productive” would you feel in a place that makes you feel terrible?
So, the question is, how can you boost your overall company morale to keep your teams happy and productive? Well, it’s simple. Start small by incorporating these few changes to your daily office or team environment.
- Incorporate Positive Feedback
- Host Company Bonding Events
- Acknowledge Stellar Achievements
- Build Better/ More Open Communication Between Teams
Create An Open Environment.
Along with boosting your company morale, try implementing a new open environment for your business. Take this both literally and figuratively. For the more literal side of things, taking away the physical boundaries in your office opens up the room to collaborations.
People can literally get up and see other people working on projects or tasks, it allows not only your team members to feel motivated to get in gear and become more productive, but it can also boost your leader’s morale. With both your team leaders and team members morale boosted, the productivity levels will be sky high.
On the more figurative side of things, creating an open environment between you and your teams will 100% of the time keep everyone happy. If you haven’t already figured it out, happiness equals productivity.
What does it mean to be open in your environment? It means to be completely transparent. Your team needs to know where you stand on their work, time lines, feelings and overall experience. You should also be aware of how they are feeling about everything as well, being transparent is a two way street.
Creating Weekly Goals For Your Team.
Boosting productivity is easy when you create an incentive for your team earn. It can be as simple your teams winning a pizza party for finishing a certain amount of tasks at the end of the week. Or as complex as a full on competition to win a salary boost at the end of each quarter.
Along with creating those more personal goals for your teams, make sure to educate your employee’s how their work really effects the company. Show your teams the positives that come from all of the fun, it can make their victories that much sweeter.
