10 Ways to build your Staff Morale!

"To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace" Doug Conant

Companies with happy employees outperform the competition by 20%! Isn’t it great?

Gone are the days when employers held all the cards. Employees no longer feel compelled to serve companies that do not value them. From time to time, employees get drained. They don’t want to look at another work report, Zoom meeting, or e-mails.

In this case, companies strive to constantly experiment and innovate to find the best way to satisfy employees and help them work effectively.

When we think our employees at InsureMyTeam need a morale boost, we turn to the following seven tips.

1. Communicate often:

 One of the most overlooked ways to motivate your team is through communication. Through effective communication, your employees feel more empowered. "It also gives them a sense of belonging, camaraderie, and responsibility," says John Rampton.

2. Acknowledge their hard work:

Praise and commendation from managers are rated as the top motivators for performance. An organization with strategic recognition programmes in place exhibits 28.6% lower frustration levels than companies without recognition programs.

3. Incorporate more flexibility:

"The fastest way to kill morale is to treat an employee like a resource similar to a stamp press or die cutter," says Curtis Stuehrenberg of Accelrys. Your employee could be a dad, a mom, or maybe someone with extra responsibility, so incorporating flexibility not only helps to boost employee satisfaction but also results in them becoming more productive.

This is likely the first approach and is about giving employees the freedom to structure their own work days and weeks–often including when, where, and for how long they work. 

4. Invest in virtual corporate seminars and other training for your team:

One of the top reasons employees leave a company is the lack of development opportunities. So, investing some funds in this will help your employees to sharpen their existing skills and also introduce you to new skills.

5. Provide healthy food options:

Your staff spends a significant portion of their time at the workplace— precisely—one-third of their meals are taken during office hours! So provide them with better food options and make this situation a win-win for yourself. For example, foods like pasta, bread, and soda are not considered as a healthy option but fruits and vegetables play a key role while considering better food options. A recent study shows that not only can healthy foods provide us the energy we need, but also they can make us happier, more engaged, and more creative.

6. Medical Coverage:

With so many fancy benefits, one should not overlook this one!

Because providing health insurance as an employee benefit is one of the simplest but most effective steps you can take to reward and attract talent, it is one of the most important "Health Insurance Benefits."

You can manage Employee Health Insurance, Health Care and Wellness all on one platform for yourself and your employees with InsureMyTeam.

Staff morale is a direct reflection of how healthy your company culture is!
