5 Ways to Boost Employee Morale to Boost Profits - Carol Evenson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

5 Ways to Boost Employee Morale to Boost Profits

Running a business can be difficult. So much so that it can be easy to forget that your workers have struggles of their own. Employee morale is a relatively new talking point that brings to light how much your business can suffer when your employees aren’t happy, contrary to the standard practices of  previous decades. Here’s what you need to know about boosting productivity by boosting morale.

Essential Oils

A great way to put your employees at ease is to cultivate the most relaxing atmosphere possible. One great way to do this is by using an essential oil diffuser. Young Living Essential Oils can be distributed into the air where it becomes part of the mixture of gases your employees breath in. By placing a diffuser in your office, you can help employees find serenity at work, which will allow them to stay on task much more easily.

Standing Desks

Sitting for prolonged periods of time is extremely detrimental to your health, and office workers in particular do just that for 8 hours a day. While this is in part a necessary evil, it can be alleviated tremendously with the use of standing desks. By simply spending more time on your feet, you can negate the downsides of sitting in place all day. Adjustable standing desks make for a great compromise, as it allows a mixture of sitting and standing so that your employees aren’t expected to subject themselves to outrageous foot pain by going from sitting all day to standing all day.

Pay Incentives

It’s easy to feel like working for the majority of your waking life isn’t always worth it. While the money you can earn is necessary in order to live within society, many people feel undervalued and underpaid. One way to alleviate this is to offer pay incentives. By incentivizing employees to increase their output using monetary bonuses, you can give them powerful motivation to give the job their all, benefiting both parties immensely.

Paid Leave

Another way to boost morale via increased pay is to offer employees paid vacation time and paid medical and paternal leave. Vacation is something that everyone deserves, but many aren’t able to justify giving up their income during that time. This means that those people simply don’t take vacations at all in order to get by. This can be disastrous for mental health, which in turn negatively impacts productivity. Instead, employees can be offered paid vacation time, and this is often done on the basis of earning a paid vacation day every so often, so that they can also save up for a proper vacation or simply take a much needed day off from time to time. Likewise, paid leave for medical or parental is catching on throughout the business world because it’s hard to justify punishing someone for getting ill or injured or having children. By enabling your workers to continue to earn vital income during these absences that simply can’t be helped, you can allow that time to be focused on the matter at hand instead of how it hurts their bank account moving forward.

Casual Atmosphere

In addition to making the atmosphere of your business more soothing, cultivating a casual atmosphere can also go a long way. Many employees feel like their bosses are beyond reproach due to their superior status, and that makes for employees who don’t feel comfortable bringing problems to your attention or asking for clarification as to their responsibilities. By characterizing yourself as an approachable supervisor, you can have the open and honest communication that keeps your company operating smoothly.

 

Employees that don’t feel sufficiently valued will simply invest less of themselves into their work. Reversing that negative feeling can be very simple, however. Monetary rewards are always a good idea if it’s in the budget, but simply making your employees feel welcome and relaxed is essential. These tips can help you put your workers in the best state of mind for themselves as well as your company.
