Employees with high morale are 89% more likely put in extra effort and extra hours at work, according to a study by Bright Horizons.
“It’s clear that creating a culture that supports employee well-being can increase workforce potential and drive organizations forward,” said Bright Horizons CEO David Lissy.“But understanding what motivates employees and keeps them engaged can be a difficult task, particularly when you take into account the various disruptions competing for mindshare and preventing employees from contributing fully.”
One way to build Team Spirit and boost Morale is to implement employee uniforms. Just think about any team you have ever been on. How proud were you to wear that uniform, whether it was little league baseball, high school football, or your first job as an auto mechanic? That uniform was a source of pride. Uniforms help make your employees feel like they are part of a team, which can, in turn, foster a sense of pride in their job and help boost performance.
“When employees feel that the company takes their interest to heart, then the employees will take company interests to heart,” says clinical psychologist Dr. Nelson. “Companies that effectively appreciate employee value enjoy a return on equity & assets more than triple that experienced by firms that don’t.”
Conversely, 90% of unsatisfied employees not only consider changing jobs, but are 11 times more likely to move to a new organization in the next year, according to 24 Seven.
