Depending on your company, you might expect a slowdown during this pandemic era. Clients may take more time to respond, the job will fluctuate drastically in your area and schools are closed. For your employees, thoughts are anticipated to turn to take care of their families during the downtime, and even hoping they had some of their own. You look out the window, and it’s sumptuous outside due to lockdown and empty roads. Suddenly there are far more enjoyable things to do than assemble in an office for eight hours and remain fruitful.
Yet, without your team to take care of work, will there be a business come pandemic? Of course, you don’t foresee everything to fall apart so abruptly just because it’s humans are confused, but it is vital to keep your employees driven during this period, or whenever you encounter a lull, so they may continue to look forward to measuring in. This means taking on extra duty as a confidence officer, but if you know what to do, keeping your team content and fruitful should prove simple.
- Change the timing:
With today’s technology, not everyone is obliged to punch in at nine and out at five. For working parents, their calendar may take them all over the map and around the clock with home education for students, sports, and other activities. If you suspect business to slow at specific points, work with those workers who need a bit of flexibility to balance the home life and job. You’ll find they are more considerate of the time given and ready to outperform even the best in the business. Flexibility in timing is essential.
Once in a while, treat the office to an opportunity to let off steam. Host a group lunch (with social distancing), or cater a work appreciation party that isn’t fundamentally tied to a birthday or other milestone. This gives your workers a chance to unwind and become more satisfied in the work environment. Socialising brings comfort.
- Incentives are evergreen:
Reward proactive behavior, mainly when work is slow. Idle hands bring trouble, but anybody proficient in bringing in clients should receive the incentive he earns.
Think outside the box when searching for ways to boost morale at your workplace. Happy employees equal more productivity and more earnings Pandemic will fall. Your business won’t.
