Creating a Positive Work Environment at Home
Your staff are an integral part of your company. A positive work culture is essential to your team’s productivity. This doesn’t stop when your staff have to work from home. In fact it’s more important than ever. After all, a low company morale can result in poor communication, burnt-out staff, and less cooperation.
There are a few simple ways to create a positive work environment at home to boost productivity and morale.
1. ENCOURAGE WORK-LIFE BALANCE. Be a business that fits well with your employee’s lifestyle by encouraging a great work-life balance. You can show your employees that you care with simple tasks. Remind them to take breaks and if they’re home schooling their children then show some understanding. It can be really tough juggling it all.
2. OFFER A FREE LUNCH. This is a small thing to do that will make a big difference in how your staff feel about the company. Going the extra mile in providing At Home catering can boost morale, increase employee relations, keep employees focused, and put a smile on their faces.
3. CELEBRATE THEIR SUCCESSES S. Success breeds even more success. Your staff’s accomplishments should always be celebrated. Simple celebrations add joy, boosts employee morale, and inspires other team members. Send them one of our Celebrate Grazing platters to mark the occasion.
4.CREATE FUN EVENTS – YES EVEN IN LOCKDOWN. Your staff are more than likely missing daily interactions with their colleagues whilst they’re working from home. Organise a virtual Trivia Night and allow your team to socialise with each other even if it is on Zoom! This is a great way to quickly boost morale and begin to foster a great company culture.
It doesn’t take a lot to boost staff during this time. Trivia Night on Zoom with a cheese platter and bottle of wine delivered to their home goes a long way in lifting spirits.
