How To Boost
Chantal "Taly" Russell
Let’s face it: some of your employees
might not want to be at work today. You
actually might not want to be at work today.
But, as they say in show business, the
show must go on. Everyone has a day
where they may be a bit distracted or feel
as if the weight of their work is just going to
weigh them down.
While your employer isn’t responsible
for helping you have a great day
personally, they can help you to have a
great day with the business, and that
just might improve the mood around the
cubicles. If you’re looking to boost the
morale in your office, follow these tips to
put a smile on everyone’s face and
keep them productively working hard
Whether you’re an HR executive or an
office manager, showing kindness and
compassion for others is key. You can’t
expect to have a healthy relationship
with a fellow employee or a subordinate
if the other party doesn’t feel welcomed
around you. It’s important that
employees not only feel valued but
listened to as well; employees want to
feel as if they make a difference.
Take time out of your day to connect with
different employees. Something as simple
as asking how someone’s day is going can
open new doors for communication.
Additionally, making sure you are
empathetic towards an employee’s concern
is also extremely important. If your
employees don’t feel as if you are invested
in their well being, they won’t want to invest
anything into the well-being of your
Businesses that are all work and no play
likely have a lot of cranky employees. Some
jobs require a more serious nature within
the office than others, but there’s always
room for some celebration. When an
employee is celebrated for their good work,
other employees are going to want to have
their moment in the sun as well, pushing
them to work even harder.
I also believe that while highlighting
individuals is always a good thing,
celebrating those individuals as a team and
rewarding the whole group is going to make
everyone feel appreciated and valued. If
everyone on the team has a fond memory
of a team celebration to bond over,
teamwork will be tighter, and morale will be
Email has become the most common way
to communicate important information to
others while in the office. Remember,
however, that email is also the way that
those outside of the office communicate
with those inside of the office. Sometimes
employees can get hundreds of emails a
day, and your important email might be the
straw that breaks the camel’s back and
leads to an email overload meltdown.
It’s okay to utilize chat applications to
quickly communicate to your team. It’s also
okay to let your employees use chat
applications as well. If you show them a little
trust to act professionally, they’ll feel less
judged and more appreciated.
