Business Benefits from Positive Staff Morale and Effective Communications

It is very important for companies to pay attention to the overall morale of their staff, as morale levels can affect everything from the quality of work, customer service levels and staff retention levels.

It may cost the company a little to increase the morale in their employees, but employees with a high morale will do better work in return and ultimately contribute to the success of the company.  Front view portrait of four business executives jumping with arms raised

To ensure that this is achieved, staff need to clearly understand their roles, their impact on customers, how they bring value to the organization and their total compensation package.  Employee’s benefit coverage is an important part of the staff’s total compensation package and it is vital that the staff understand the value of their complete compensation package.

Factors that can contribute to positive staff morale include, but are not limited to:

  • Staff being recognized for successes with encouraging words for a job well done.
  • Flexible benefit plans that meet their individual needs.
  • Staff being challenge with new opportunities to use and develop their skills.
  • Regular scheduled reviews and feedback.
  • Performance issues being dealt with and discipline consistently applied.
  • Staff being rewarded for work well done.

As there is a company cost associated with offering staff benefits, it is important that staff clearly understand the value.  One method for achieving this is to supply staff with a year-end summary which breaks down their total compensation package into categories.

Employers need to be honest, fair, and interact with staff frequently.  This will result in a workplace that they are proud of, where great things can happen, and they will know that their efforts are a major factor in its success.

As a team, great things can be achieved.
