Discover the Secrets of Boosting Employee Morale... on a Shoestring Budget

Successful Employees

No company is safe. From the executive board room to the mailroom, it’s a silent epidemic sweeping through the nation; its effects are visible, right under your nose- within your own company, and within many other companies – just like yours…

Its causalities are productivity and profit – where millions never- to- be- seen- again revenues, seem to vanish out the back door.

All because of low employee morale, poor attitudes and a negative working atmosphere.

Recent reports from HR Direct points out that a company of 100 employees could stand to lose nearly $75,000 per year due to absenteeism and tardiness.

Here’s the Million Dollar question…

"Why is low employee morale so rampant …so extensive …so seemly out of control across our nation? And is there anything you can do to raise employee morale and decrease employee turnover...?"

Good question…I’ll answer that in a moment... but first a true story...

One day, I stopped in to see a client.The large call center room was painted stark white. Numerous white pillars were surrounded by gray work stations. I had gone there because the manager had asked me to help raise employee morale. Absenteeism at the call center was so high they had to employ extra people in anticipation of absentees.

My first thought was, "Something has to be done about these depressing surroundings..."

"Can you paint the room a soft pastel color," I asked?

"Sorry," she answered, "We don't have the budget."

"Well." I suggested, "How about putting silk flowers throughout the call center."

"Sorry," she answered, "We don't have the budget for that either."

Grasping at straws, I said, "How about decorating for a holiday each month?"

"I could do that!" she replied."Halloween is coming up next month."

After leaving the call center room, I sat down with the manager and six of her supervisors in a small conference room, and I explained the basic theory of employee morale and gave her ideas about what she could do to bulid an employee motivation program at her company on a shoestring budget. She knew that low employee morale was costing her company a lot of money - in employee turnover and lost sales! I wondered if they would take some action on my suggestions.

I'll finish the story in a minute... but first...

Do you know how much money poor morale is costing your company?

Stop a moment and think – How much does the hiring and training cost when you have to replace only one employee? How much do the hours of lost productivity cost because your staff has low energy? How much is the cost of a lost customer because an employee had a negative attitude on the phone? How much money are you losing because of a lack of employee cooperation and team spirit?

It's all up to you!

Whether you are a supervisor, manager or business owner, solving employee morale problems is up to you.

  • When employees gripe, complain and gossip about conditions at work, it's up to you to create a positive atmosphere and a cooperative spirit.
  • When employees are depressed and lethargic, it's up to you to energize them.
  • No matter what tough employee morale problems crop up, you have to be ready to fix them. If you don't - it costs your company money.
  • Creating an employee motivation program is essential to building employee morale and decreasing employee turnover.

What if you have little or no budget for an employee motivation program?

You're not alone. Many companies don’t have any morale budget. However, don't despair! We can show you the secrets of raising morale without spending a lot of money. But, don’t kid yourself – to raise morale you must do something.

When it comes to employee morale – doing nothing is expensive!

The owner of a real estate company asked me to help her motivate her sales people. "What are you doing now to motivate them?" I asked.

"We have a breakfast once a month for those who have met their sales quotas," she replied. "The problem is that we haven't had breakfasts in several months because very few people have met their quotas."

She had motivation all backwards. First you have to motivate, then you will get the results. She lost millions of dollars in missed sales because she didn’t understand the secrets of energizing and motivating her sales staff.

Your employees need more than a paycheck, they need a –Psychological Paycheck–.

Your people expect a salary for the work they do, but they need more than money to remain loyal, enthusiastic workers. They also need a psychological paycheck. This means they need:

1. Social interaction with their co-workers
2. Respect and appreciation from their managers and peers
3. Opportunities to learn and become more valuable employees

You can give your employees this psychological paycheck without spending a lot of money when you have creative ideas. We’ll show you where to get them in a minute, but first let’s see what happened at the call center…

At the call center - One month later...

I returned to the call center a month later - in mid October. As I entered what last month was a stark white room, I was speechless! The call center's operations room had been transformed into a haunted house! Ghosts, goblins, and big black spiders were hanging from the ceiling and cobwebs were everywhere.

"The employees did it themselves! They brought in their own decorations. They were so excited! It really developed a team spirit," the manager excitedly explained.

And there's more...

A contest, matching employees with their baby pictures, was in process. "They are so excited about this contest. It's been going on all week and Friday they get to find out who is who," the manager proudly said.

But – Best of all…

"Everybody is so fired up, and the best part is that absenteeism is way down because nobody wants to miss out on all the fun! We've radically decreased our employee turnover which saves us a lot of money hiring and training new employees."

What about you? What are your employee morale problems?

  • A major change in company structure?
  • Employees being laid off?
  • Lack of communication?
  • A negative attitude?
  • Joylessness?
  • Low energy?
  • Co-workers don’t get along?
  • A gloomy atmosphere?
  • Stress?

After relaxing you will be able to get more done in less time. This week, schedule some relaxation time every day. Put it on your calendar, and keep your appointment with yourself.

Here’s a relaxation idea. Create a relaxation corner in your home. Equip it with a comfortable chair, CD or tape player, soft music, candles, and some inspirational material. Even spending as little as 10 minutes in your special corner every day will make a difference.
