Every employee can have an occasional “case of the Mondays”. But if your staff has seemed incredibly unmotivated lately or is finding it difficult to work together to accomplish business goals, then it may be time to shake things up in the office and treat your company to an innovative team building retreat here at WhirlyBall. Here are some of the common signs of poor employee morale:
One Too Many Sick Days Being Taken
While it is normal for employees to take the occasional “sick day” due to a cold or a bad case of a seasonal flu, regular absenteeism is one of the biggest signs that employee morale is low. If employees lose their drive or their interest to come in and be a contributing member of the team, then you may want to speak with them personally about their health before discussing ways to improve their situation and reintegrate them into the office dynamics.
HR Intervening in Workplace Conflicts
If you are frequently playing referee between numerous squabbles taking place amongst coworkers, then it may be time to start planning a corporate retreat at your local private party venue. Although it is the human resource department's responsibility to resolve tension in the workplace, you can complement its efforts by encouraging employees to address their differences in a group setting.
Signs of Carelessness Appearing in Work Results
Another clear indicator that morale may be running at an all-time low around the workplace is the appearance of numerous careless mistakes in reports, briefings, or other important documents. Most employees have a characteristic way of writing or speaking that you can typically identify when they're putting their best foot forward. If they've lowered their standards and have begun to settle for mediocre results, then it's time to take action.
