The issue of worker morale is something to be taken seriously. If your personnel don’t feel motivated and happy in their roles, a number of problems can arise. For example, they may lack commitment to their tasks and therefore work inefficiently. Ultimately, this can impact on your bottom line.
Also, you might have to cope with high levels of staff turnover, which is resource intensive and can hinder your ability to get the most from your workforce.
Providing workers with a boost
At present, in light of the ongoing economic problems affecting the UK and many other parts of the world, it might be more important than ever to focus on staff morale. Indeed, one firm has suggested that many bosses are doing precisely this.
According to office toy supplier KlearGear.com, sales to its corporate customers have soared since the beginning of the last recession in 2008. Commenting on the importance of looking after personnel, the businesses’ president Lee Gersten said: “Smart organisations put their employees first and their customers second. If you take care of your employees, they’ll take care of your customers.”
The firm went on to note that interactive toys like brain teasers and foam slingshots have become best sellers.
Mr Gersten added: “In some offices, fun was viewed as a distraction. More companies are learning that playtime has tangible benefits. Even small companies can see the return on investment.”
Creating the perfect working space
Of course, toys alone will not suffice when it comes to helping boost workers’ spirits. It’s also vital they have access to the right office furniture UK. Being able to use high-quality, well designed chairs, desks, tables and so on means employees should feel comfortable.
In the long term, this can even enhance their personal wellbeing. In contrast, poorly designed and badly made items can result in musculoskeletal problems and so on.
