What is Employee Morale?
In general, employee morale is the overall outlook an employee has about their time at work. This outlook can affect attendance, productivity and numerous other things that affect a business’s bottom line.
So how do you ensure your employees are happy?
It starts by creating an atmosphere that fosters relationships. And that’s exactly what we do here at Priority Staffing Group.
One of the benefits we offer each internal employee is the opportunity to join us for an Employee Appreciation weekend.
This summer, we packed up and headed to Kentucky Lake.
The company rented pontoon boats and spent the weekend socializing and enjoying the sun together, without any pressure to meet hiring goals or entertain office politics.
Gail Barger Lannom, Heather Goines-Evans and Carlos Tanner, the founders of Priority Staffing Group, put on this all-expenses-paid trip each year to thank their employees for hard work. And the fact that our internal turnover is low is only one reason we believe it works.
Each action during this trip boosted morale a little more.
On the first night of the trip, after settling into our lakeside resort, the whole team sat down for a catered dinner and presented the company awards.
Categories included: Best Phone Voice, Best Note Taker, Most Helpful, Most Team Spirit and more.
And while it seems like an insignificant detail, these fun awards brought smiles and laughter to the whole team.
So, don’t dismiss the small things. To your employees, those details could be what keeps them in your office.
If you want to know more about how we keep morale up, give any of our offices a call. In addition to hiring new team members, we also provide valuable advice that stems from 50+ years in the staffing industry.
