For boosting employee morale, a lot of companies are making so many efforts. But have you ever tried to know what is employee morale? If you want to understand employee morale then you need to find the answers to some basic questions:
- Is the employee satisfied with the company?
- What is his outlook for the company?
- Does he feel well after working in the company?
- What is his attitude towards the company?
The answers to all the above questions clearly define employee morale.
For boosting employee morale, a number of ways exist. If you will give value to the workers and appreciate them then they will definitely like it. It has been found that the efficiency of an employee is affected by employee morale.
Here are some ways by which corporate business events can boost employee morale.
1. Take your company’s employees on a picnic –
It will be classic to take your company’s workers on a picnic. In order to give a break to the workers from their regular work, taking them on a picnic will be a good idea. This will help them in relieving stress. You can go with your team members to a local park for a lunch. Ask the team members to take their favorite homemade dish and bring their family to the picnic especially when your budget is not big.
But if your budget allows then instead of potluck providing a proper lunch to the employees will be a good idea. For the purpose of enjoyment, you can ask the team members to sing their favorite song and along with this, you can also organize a competition or game.
2. Ask the employees to group together outside the company for doing good work –
In order to do some good work in the local community you can invite the team members as a group and this will boost their morale. Discuss with the team members if they are volunteering for any organization. It will be good if you go with the team members for cleaning the beach. Indulging in activities of these kinds helps in boosting the morale of the team members. Don’t ask the workers to group together during their working hours. You have to take out some time from the busy schedule.
3. Invite a motivational speaker to boost the morale of your employees –
You can allow the team members to have a good time that is stress-free by encouraging them to listen to an entertainer or a motivational speaker at a corporate event. The team members just have to enjoy it by sitting at the back. Some team members may take interest in interacting with the speaker and so you have to tell him in advance about what questions can be asked by your team members. You can also invite a magician or a stand-up comic to entertain your team members so that this event becomes memorable for them.
4. Host a happy hour party –
By hosting a happy hour party you can strengthen the relations of the co-workers with each other. You can host it either at a venue outside the office or you can host it in your office. For the workers that work from remote areas, hosting a virtual happy hour party will be a good idea. If you want to host this party in the company then don’t forget to offer different kinds of beverages to all the workers. Remember that for setting up the scene, ambiance matters the most and not the type of food or beverages served.
To give the event a look of the party you can arrange some colorful lighting as well as decorate the office. By creating an environment for the workers that is stress-free you can divert their minds from their hectic tasks for some time and this will help in boosting their morale.
5. Host a trivia night –
If you will host a trivia night then you can get information about the employees having a competitive streak. By asking a number of questions you can easily know if they have knowledge about some random facts.
6. Organize a dance contest –
There are a number of benefits of organizing a dance contest for the workers:
- Endorphins will release from their body because of exercise during dancing and they will feel happy.
- This will provide them relief from stress.
But these kinds of activities are not suitable for older people. Only younger people can dance without any problem. Older people can enjoy seeing the dance of others.
7. Fix a day for the workers to run –
When the workers will run for 3 km to 5 km then it will be a good exercise for them and their mind will get a relax.
If you take interest in hosting a theme party or wedding then it will be good for you to take help from an event organization.
