Employee Morale and Productivity Go Beyond the Paycheck
January 17, 2012 Leave a comment
In a recent article published by Inc. Magazine, employers are looking for unique ways to improve employee morale in 2012. Increases in paychecks are no longer the happy-maker that they used to be. Alternatives sighted in the article include ‘over communicating’, ‘celebrating wins’, and ‘keeping it real’. All in all, the biggest factor for most employees is the ability to have work-life balance. http://bit.ly/yHBI3l
Once an anomaly for baby boomers pulling all-nighters at the office to keep up with the Joneses, work-life balance actually has a standing chance with today’s technologies– it’s called TELEWORKING.
For many business owners, just the thought of allowing employees to work from home is daunting – they perceive it to ensure lost control, lack of insight into employee productivity, and simply an administrative nightmare. However, according to Forbes’ ”How Flexibility Can Boost Employee Productivity”, teleworking is more about adapting your work environment to accommodate for the ways in which your employees most thrive – the end goal being to increase productivity. http://onforb.es/qNQOSI.
