3. Offer Flexibility

Office morale will suffer if your employees are feeling the strain of poor health outside of work. The global pandemic has increased both physical and mental health issues for a variety of reasons. 

It’s important that you give your employees the opportunity to take breaks, whether that be for hours or days. Be aware, too, that your employees will be having family difficulties as the pandemic is affecting everyone. So, give them time and flexibility to deal with any issues they or their family might have.

4. Exercise Challenge

You can improve employee morale by directly contributing to improved employee health. You can do this by bringing in exercise challenges. For example, see who can run the most miles each week for a prize.

Doing this will have two effects: your employees will be motivated to compete, and they will also experience positive health outcomes. There is a direct correlation between good physical health and good mental health, so the improvements to morale should be visible very quickly.

5. Be There to Listen

This is important at all times but, now more than ever, you need to stay tuned in to your employees’ concerns. If they feel you are listening to them and that you care, this will be a great comfort and improve their morale. 

Employee Morale Will Return to Normal Soon

This pandemic will end sooner or later and employee morale will go back to normal. But, until then, just be compassionate and patient and your employees will thank you for it.
