Motivate employees later in the year

We have reached the mid point of the year and this is round about the time that many employees feel their energy start to decrease. Summer is just about over with autumn and winter ahead. There is usually a spike in energy as the winter holidays approach, however, it’s this time in between that can really take its toll. Which is all the more reason to keep everyone motivated and on track to reach their end of year goals.

The first thing to remember is to ensure that your working environment is a pleasant one. It’ not only about the way your staff interact with one another but also the appearance of their work place. When you are working in a well lit, properly decorated space, it helps lift your mood. You are more inclined to want to go to work if the conditions are pleasant. So, for this reason, it’s important that you invest in the right décor. Fresh flowers are known for improving moods which is why it makes sense to display a bunch in your reception area as well as other places like various offices. Each office should have their own bunch of flowers to ensure that everyone has a pleasant working environment. Remember, if you love the idea of flowers but you don’t want to place regular orders, you could also invest in potted plants for a more permanent natual addition to the room.

You can also help boost office morale by presenting everyone with a flower arrangement to take home. They need not be overly luxurious bouquets. They can be modest in size if you need to stick to a specific budget. Just make sure that all of the bouquets are the same size and value so that there are no hard feelings between staff members.

When you order flowers, you can also add chocolates, a bottle of wine, or another optional extra to your flower order. Again, this will depend on your budget. Adding something extra to your order will make the gift that much more special.

It’s also a good idea to offer a catered meal at least once every couple of weeks. It’s not only about the food, but also about team building. Giving your employees time to eat together in a more informal setting makes it possible for them to get to know one another. When your employees form stronger bonds, it creates a stronger team and this is always great for business.
