If your once enthusiastic, motivated, happy team seems to be in a bit of a rut, there’s no better time to turn this around than the fun-filled summer months. Employee engagement is the key to your company’s lasting success, so when morale takes a hit, production levels typically follow. Make it your goal to give your staff a relaxing and enjoyable work environment this summer, so they can recharge and find the passion they once had for their work.
5 Ways to Boost Morale This Summer
Use these tips to increase engagement — and productivity — levels this season.
Host a Company Picnic.
Summer is the season of fun, so invite your employees and their families for a weekend BBQ at a local park. This is a great way to enjoy some quality bonding time together outside the confines of the office and get to know everyone on a more personal level.
Allow Flexible Working Options.
Many people like to switch their schedules up during the most relaxed season of the year — and some are forced to do so because their kids are out of school — so be extra accommodating. When possible, let employees adjust their hours or work remotely to enjoy summer on their own terms, without losing an ounce of efficiency.
Offer Summer Fridays.
Many companies offer “Summer Friday” perks, allowing employees to start their weekend off a couple hours early, so join in the trend. Your team will be incredibly appreciative, which will likely inspire them to work harder the rest of the week.
Close your office for a day this summer and volunteer on a community project with your team. Allow each person to suggest a cause and hold a vote to choose which one you’ll donate your time to. Volunteering feels great and it makes people grateful to work for such a giving company.
Hold Meetings Outside.
In the summer, there are few things worse than being cooped up inside while the sun is shining bright outdoors. Alleviate this issue by investing in a picnic table or a few chairs, so you can hold meetings outside. Getting a little sunshine and fresh air feels amazing inside and out.
