Ever wonder why they call it the “daily grind?” Well, if you’ve ever worked in an office setting, you can relate; it’s not always easy to stay motivated by and excited about work. That said, you don’t have to settle for a team of unmotivated employees. Increasing office morale – which can in turn boost productivity – might be easier than you think.
Las Vegas Team Building
Finished a tough project? Received some accolades from higher execs? Snagged a great account? Celebrate those victories as a team, even if it was primarily one person involved in the actual feat. An office lunch, in-office cake party or an afternoon excursion (FLIPnOUT, anyone?) could be just the way to celebrate.
Pay Them for Community Service
Your business won’t just gain a tax write-off when paying for qualified service hours, but your employees will get a nice break from the office and the healthy sense of doing something good. For an added boost, ask employees to suggest or plan community service events they’re passionate about.
Allow them to Get Creative
Sometimes, a job just feels like a job. Now and then, give employees the freedom of innovation; tell them to spend a designated amount of time on something – anything – that they think could be innovative or cool for your business. Then host a “party” to see what everyone came up with. Who knows? Someone could strike it big.
Become More Collaborative
Working in a silo isn’t great for morale. Create a better collaborative space with online tools, custom meeting rooms and a “think-tank” like atmosphere. Get feedback on projects from employees who aren’t necessarily part of the project team; that way, everyone feels a bit of ownership.
Unwind as a Team
You know what they say about all work and no play, right? Give your employees a day (or afternoon) of tension-relieving fun. Of course, we’d suggest a few hours letting off office steam in our trampoline park. Throw in some good food and you’ll have a happy team on your hands.
